Faith and social issues took center stage on night two of the Republican National Convention, as speakers said the Trump administration had worked to advance the cause of religious freedom, promoting pro-life causes, and criminal justice reform.
Among the speakers was pro-life activist and former Planned Parenthood employee Abby Johnson who condemned her former employer's racist heritage. She noted that 80% of Planned Parenthood's abortion facilities are located near minority neighborhoods, and that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist.
Trump, she said "has done more for the unborn than any other president" and is "the most pro-life president we've ever had.
Johnson graphically described a second-trimester abortion she says she witnessed while working for Planned Parenthood, saying that she saw "an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction ... The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother's womb before succumbing to the force of the suction."
