Donald Trump said that if he is re-elected in November, he would work “side by side” with a newly formed religious group that wants to ban abortion.

At its first Life and Liberty conference in Indiana on Monday, the group, called The Danbury Institute, played a two-minute recording of Trump declaring he would work with the organization to defend the values ​​of “religious freedom, free speech, innocent life,” but Trump avoided the word abortion, The Oregonian reported.

The Danbury Institute is a coalition of churches and organizations that calls abortion “the greatest atrocity facing the United States.” The Life and Liberty conference was held as part of the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting.

On its website, the Danbury Institute states that the organization stands for “life from conception to natural death.” It advocates that “the rights of every human being be respected from the moment of conception, which means that every unborn baby has the same protections under the law as born human beings.”

“These are going to be your years, because you’re going to make a comeback like no other group,” Trump told those attending the recording. “I know what’s happening. I know where you came from and where you’re going. And I’m going to be right there with you.”

He then urged the Danbury Institute and church members to vote for him in November.

“You just can’t vote for the Democrats. They are against religion. They are especially against your religion,” Trump said.

Democrats have already criticized Trump’s ties to the group.

“Four more years of Donald Trump means empowering organizations like the Danbury Institute that seek to ban abortion nationwide and punish women who have abortions,” Sarafine Chitika, a spokeswoman for Biden’s campaign, told the Related Press“Trump boasts that he was responsible for overturning Roe. He believes the extreme state bans now in place because of him are ‘working very well,’ and if he gets the chance, he will sign a national abortion ban. That’s what’s at stake this November.”
