Pro-life activist group Operation Rescue announced last week that U.S. President Donald Trump has won its 2017 Pro-Life Person of the Year Malachi Award for his work in “protecting the pre-born.”

“Operation Rescue is grateful Pres. Trump for having the courage to keep promises made during the campaign that provide greater protections for the pre-born and deny Federal funds from those who commit abortions,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman in the press release.

“He has proven to be the most pro-life president we have had in modern history and has backed up his pro-life rhetoric with action like no other before him.”

The group listed eight of his main accomplishments since taking office, starting with his appointment of conservative, pro-life Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“He has effectively denied public money to those who commit and promote abortions around the world,” Operation Rescue said of Trump’s second accomplishment.

“The Trump Administration Department of Justice has launched a formal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s illegal baby parts trafficking scheme,” it continued.

Another victory for pro-lifers was identified in Trump’s support for pro-life legislation, such as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which is aiming to ban late-term abortions nationwide.
