Trump's SOTU Urges Congress To "Cherish Innocent Life" And Fight Late Term Abortion

As expected, President Donald Trump gave considerable weight to the issue of late-term abortion in last night's State of the Union address, urging Congress to “pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”

The President's statements were timed appropriately after a slew of late-term abortion bills hit the legislatures of several states, most notably New York and Viginia—whom Trump wasn't afraid to call out in his address.

“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,” the President said as the camera panned to smirking New York Sen. Chuck Schumer. “These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.”

“And then,” Trump continued, “we had the case of the governor of Virginia, where he basically stated he would execute a baby after birth,” referring to Gov. Ralph Northam's remarks that a baby who survived late-term abortion would be resuscitated if its parents desire and "made comfortable" while they discuss its fate with the doctor.

The President called on federal lawmakers to “work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life” and to “reaffirm a fundamental truth:  all children—born and unborn—are made in the holy image of God.”
