As mainstream new outlets have ignored two significant events in recent days, I am thankful that President Trump brought them front and center in the State of the Union Address. Late term abortion is one of the few issues that the VAST majority of Americans agree on. We should be able to unite as citizens and lawmakers and end this quickly.
From the State of the Union, Feb. 5, 2019, President Donald Trump:
“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days. 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. 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.”
“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. 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.”
