Trump calls for late-term abortion ban in State of Union

The following comes from a Feb. 5 story on the Washington Examiner.

President Trump during his State of the Union address Tuesday blasted Democrats for authorizing “a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb” and allowing doctors to “execute a baby after birth,” urging Congress to pass a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb,” Trump said.

The president’s comments come after New York loosened restrictions on abortion and as Democrats are under fire for controversial comments regarding late-term abortion.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and state Del. Kathy Tran, both Democrats, last week said they supported a state bill that appeared to allow abortion at the time of birth. Tran later said she misspoke about when abortion would be permitted and Northam’s office later released a statement saying that the governor’s comments were mischaracterized and had been intended in cases in which a baby wouldn’t survive birth because of deformity or another health issue.

In his State of the Union address, Trump called the remarks “chilling.”

“Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth,” Trump said. “These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he basically stated he would execute a baby after birth.”

    He did even more than that. He said:
    “Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth — all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.”
    He also pivoted (and compared) to other mass killing movements: the Holocaust, homicidal shooters at synagogues, evil regimes, socialism.
    Trump – the most pro life President in history. MTPA: Make Trump President Again!

    Alaska’s Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a Catholic, proclaimed Jan. 22 as “Pro-Life Day,” in his recent “State of the State” speech. Too bad our “Catholic” present California governor (Newsom) and last two “Catholic” governors (Brown and Schwartzenegger) —— could not do likewise! Maybe I will move to Alaska!!

    Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of Rev.Billy Graham– is a strong pro-life supporter, and Trump supporter, too! A few years ago, he was banned for 24 hours by Facebook, after publicly stating that men should not be allowed into women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, during the big transgender bathroom controversy. There was a huge public outcry over this— and Facebook then apologized, and removed the ban.

  4. How wonderful. I’ve heard that Melania, who is a practicing Catholic, is connected to the TLM community in D.C. Undoubtedly, her faith and holiness have had an impact on the President.
