(CNSNews.com) -- Conservative leader Brent Bozell, who heads the Media Research Center, said that in his new book, Unmasked, he argues that President Donald Trump is "the most pro-life president in history." He added that at least since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973 "there has been no Republican president with his track record on pro-life."

"He said he was going to be a pro-life president," said Bozell in an interview with CNSNews.com. "There were plenty of people who wondered about that."

"We argue in this book that he’s the most pro-life president in history," he said.

 

 

Unmasked: Big Media's War Against Trump, was written by Brent Bozell and his MRC colleague Tim Graham, the director of media analysis. Former Attorney General Edwin Meese remarked that the book "exposes the massive propaganda attack designed to undermine and even topple a duly elected president and his administration.”

In a recent interview, CNSNews.com asked Bozell, "Do you think Donald Trump is the most pro-life president of the last, say, 60 years?"

Bozell said, "I think it’s stunning because this topic comes in the 'who’d of thunk' category. Donald Trump was a supporter of abortion, a funder of the abortion machine in supporting candidates like Hillary Clinton and abortion bills like Planned Parenthood.  He said he was going to be a pro-life president. There were plenty of people who wondered about that.  We argue in this book that he’s the most pro-life president in history."

"Think about these things we checked," said Bozell.  "No president, no nominee of the Republican Party has ever stated he would name pro-life Supreme Court justices – not one, not even Ronald Reagan said that. Donald Trump was the first one to publicly pledge to put a pro-life Supreme Court justice on the bench. He said it over and over and over again."

"Then he came through with a list of 20 pro-lifers, from which he was going to draw from, not just at the top but also district courts," said the MRC president. "On that score he has surpassed everyone."

He continued, "No president – and this always bothered me – has ever addressed the Right to Life March, unless it was taking a phone call, which is rather insulting.  In his first year, Trump sent his vice president to come. He sent Kelly Anne Conway. Last year, he spoke to them. No president’s ever done that before."

If I look at his record, his record matches his rhetoric," said Bozell.  "Since Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973 there has been no Republican president with his track record on pro-life."

President Trump has followed through on many of the commitments he made to pro-life Americans, according to the Susan B. Anthony List. Some of these accomplishments include,

-- Appointed pro-life judges

-- Stopped tax dollars funding abortion overseas

-- Required health insurance companies to disclose if plans cover abortion

-- Defunded the pro-abortion UNFPA

-- Selected strong pro-life personnel for key appointments: Vice President Mike Pence, Counselor Kellyanne Conway, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

-- Canceled huge contract for taxpayer-funded experimentation with body parts of aborted babies

-- Allowed states to defund Planned Parenthood of Medicaid Funds

-- Cut Planned Parenthood's tax funding by up to $60 million
