For abortion, Trump has hired noteworthy pro-lifer John Mashburn to serve as Policy Director. Mashburn was the Chief of Staff to U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a pro-lifer himself.
President Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List organization, a group dedicated to eradicating abortion in the United States, has initially been a critic of Trump, but has praised him about his stance on the pro-life movement. She released the following statement in regards to Trump picking Mashburn as his policy director:
“I have known and respected John Mashburn for many years. He is a smart strategist with deep pro-life roots. John is well-respected across every issue set. For him, the life issue is foundational and one which helped draw him into politics.If I were running for president, I would want John Mashburn as a top advisor, too. Congratulations on your new hire, Mr. Trump. If elected, no doubt John Mashburn will serve you well as you fulfill your campaign promises to defund Planned Parenthood, advance and sign into law the popular Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and appoint Justices to the bench who will protect and defend the Constitution.”
