November 9, 2016 (SPUC) — Donald Trump has beaten Hillary Clinton to become president of the United States, an event which could have huge significance for the American pro-life movement.
Donald Trump's changing positions on abortion have given many pro-lifers cause for concern, but his victory in the 8 November election means that Hillary Clinton, a vocal advocate of abortion, will not become president.
Hard-line pro-abortion position not resonating with the American public
“This result is hugely significant,” said SPUC's general secretary Paul Tully. “It shows that the hard-line pro-abortion position of people like Hillary Clinton is not resonating with the American public. Yesterday, Google Trends revealed that 'abortion' was the top search about Mrs Clinton. In addition, a recent Marist poll showed that 80% of Americans disagree with her position that abortion should be legal up to birth.”

“Hillary Clinton's extreme position on abortion – denying all protection to life in the womb – was clearly a strong factor in her defeat,” continued Mr Tully. “The challenge for our friends in the states is to take advantage of the opportunities that Mr Trump's presidency offers; stopping government funding of abortion, ensuring that pro-life Supreme Court justices are appointed, and promoting pro-life legislation at state and federal level.”
