This post is originally from the blog of author Gregg Jackson. In this piece, Gregg puts forward a proposed statement on the sanctity of human life that Donald Trump should make immediately following his inauguration next month. As Christians, it is our responsibility to stand up for the rights of all people – including the unborn – who are of infinite and eternal value in the sight of our loving God. The claims that an unborn baby is not a living human person and that it is simply a part of the mother’s body is unscientific and illogical. We must proclaim in prayer and deed that the right to life extends to all and that it must be restored. Else we will simply continue along with blood on our hands in the midst of a culture obsessed with death. Actions have consequences.

“At my inauguration, I swore on the Holy Bible to uphold the Supreme Law of the Land, The United States Constitution.
The 5th and 14th amendments both guarantee that no state shall deprive any innocent person of their life without due process of the law and equal protection on the laws.
As president, I will enforce these vital provisions of the United States Constitution as I am morally and constitutionally required to do.
Today, I am calling on every individual state Governor to enforce the imperative and explicit provisions of the 5th and 14th amendments by closing down all abortion centers and related activities including distribution of chemical abortion pills in their state.
If any individual state governor fails to enforce the God-given right to life for all innocent human persons in his state from conception to natural death, I will direct my attorney general and justice department to utilize any and all federal resources to shut these killing centers down.
No individual state possesses the right to alienate any inalienable rights especially the right to life.
The central motto of my campaign was to make America great again.
I am fully aware that America cannot be great again until we become good again. And I understand that America can never become good unless and until we end the Abortion Holocaust in America that has taken the lives of 60 million preborn babies since 1973.
My oath doesn’t require me to regulate child murder via abortion.
It doesn’t require me to kick the can down the proverbial road on abortion.
It requires me to END abortion, and END it I will do.
I fully recognize that Roe vs. Wade is an illegal, immoral, and totally unconstitutional court opinion that should have been rejected by every state the very moment it was issued in 1973.
I also recognize that any law or judicial opinion contrary to the United States Constitution is legally null and void and must be ignored and rejected by every civil magistrate at every branch and level of government.
But sadly, every state in the nation has treated this wicked and totally unconstitutional Roe v. Wade opinion as the supreme “law of the land” when in reality it is merely an immoral, illegal and totally anti-constitutional opinion that should have been rejected on its face as the legal nullity that it has always been.
Courts don’t make law. And illegitimate court opinions don’t trump legitimately enacted laws, statutes, and Constitutions.
Roe doesn’t need to be “overturned” for child murder to come to an end in this country.
Today marks a new day in American history.
Today I am announcing that we will be restoring the most fundamental right that all innocent human persons possess, their God-given right to their own lives from conception to natural death.
I recognize as president that no right can be secure unless the right to life be guaranteed to all regardless of age, skin color, physical condition or size.
Today I am announcing that murdering preborn babies no matter what stage of development for any reason will no longer be permitted in this nation.
No additional federal or state laws, statutes or Constitutional Amendments are required to protect the lives of preborn babies in the womb. We already have these laws on the books. They are called The Fifth and Fourteenth amendments of the United States Constitution.
And as president, I will enforce them immediately per the explicit requirements of my oath as my new Ambasador to Israel, Governor Mike Huckabee pledged to do in the first Fox News Presidential Debate.
Today, the Abortion Holocaust that has taken the lives of 60 million pre-born babies is coming to an end.
May God have mercy on us and forgive us for the blood of the innocent that we have allowed to be shed and may God bless us in the future for protecting every one of our most vulnerable and innocent persons by love and by law.”
President Elect Trump has not yet made this proclamation (these are my words) but my hope and prayer is that Christians, Christian pastors, and Christian pro-family and pro-life leaders will come alongside President-Elect Trump and strongly encourage him to boldly proclaim these words on his first official day in office.
I’m not sure if he will, but I am sure that he would be far more likely to if the Body of Christ came along side him in action, deed and prayer to end the Abortion Holocaust in America.
If you agree, please share this with your pastor and like-minded friends and on social media and let’s pray it creates a ground-swell of support across the nation for the soon to be inauguarted 45th President of the United States to do the right thing by ending the bloodshed.
As my friend Pastor Flip Benham (who founded Operation Rescue and who led Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” in Roe v Wade) to Christ frequently says, “abortion will come to an end when the Church decides it should come to an end.”
Have we as The Church finally reached that point?
Praying we have…
“With man this is impossible but With God all things are possible.”
