stop before that abortion we want to reach them one more time and so that's why we're here it's my duty to do what i can do here to persuade as many people to not have abortions as possible but ultimately that's in god's hands and one day they will have to give an answer to god. she and her fellow activists believe donald trump is as committed as they are to bending abortion. abortion is such an important issue in our time and i cannot trust a president who believes that abortion is ok without the right to life we have nothing so if we're taking away innocent life no one has right the right to life is so important and i'm seeing that from him and that's why i will be voting for him politics professor laurel buson from the university of indianapolis has been analyzing trump's supporters the evangelical vote is critical to donald trump's reelection they've been essential part of his base since he began running in 2016
