Given the bevy of stiff abortion legislation as of late (such as that in Illinois and Missouri), the issue’s become a particularly white-hot topic in the political sphere. In Orlando Tuesday night, Donald Trump made clear where he stands.
At his 2020 campaign kickoff, the President vowed to a “rousing crowd of 20,000” — as reported by LifeNews — that the Trump White House will continue its fight for unborn children.
He pointed to the unspeakable allowance of killing babies just moments before their birth — aka murder — and lambasted the DNC for wanting to force taxpayers to fund the atrocity.
–What the crap is happening to our society?–
“Virtually every top Democrat also now supports taxpayer-funded abortion right up to the moment of birth – ripping babies straight from the mothers’ womb. Leading Democrats have even opposed measures to prevent the execution of children after birth. You saw that in Virginia. Republicans believe that every life is a sacred gift from God. That is why I have asked Congress to prohibit extreme late-term abortions.”
He’s right about “top Democrats” — see my compilation of every 2020 Democratic candidate’s position on late-term abortion here.
The speech adds to strong words from his February State of the Union:
“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 from birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth.
“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking 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.”
There is a war raging. And whereas it concerned before an issue of debate — a question of “When does life begin” — it is now, more simply, “Is it okay to murder a baby?” To this question, some Democrats are saying Yes.
For now, America has a leader who believes “life is a sacred gift from God.”
