Trump may have thanked Evangelicals for their support during his acceptance speech last night , and he may have supported pastors being able to express political opinions from the pulpit, and he may have promised to put Constitutionalists on the court. But he said nothing about protecting the life of the unborn. I know his speech was 75 minutes long. But he could have said, "I believe that life begins at conception and that all life must be protected by law and by Federal policy." That would have made his speech 75 minutes and 3 seconds. Trumps pro life position is of recent vintage. The party has had a pro life position going back many years. For many Christian conservative Republicans, the pro life position is of paramount importance. In light of this, would the extra three seconds been too much to ask?
