President Donald Trump gave a clear and forceful message on pro-life factors all through the State of the Union Address tonight.
He slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion as a lot as begin and infanticide. And he known as for Congress to cross a ban on late-term abortions on infants who’re succesful of feeling ache.
There is perhaps no bigger distinction to the beautiful image of a mother holding her toddler baby than the chilling exhibits our nation observed in newest days.
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legal guidelines that may allow a toddler to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments sooner than begin. These stay, feeling, beautiful infants who will not ever get the probability to share their love and needs with the world.
And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia the place he stated he would execute a toddler after begin. To defend the dignity of every particular person, I am asking Congress to cross legal guidelines to ban the late-term abortion of children who can actually really feel ache in the mother’s womb.
Let us work collectively to assemble a practice that cherishes innocent life.
And permit us to reaffirm a primary truth — all children — born and unborn— are made in the holy image of God.
Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:
We tremendously admire the administration President Trump has confirmed in advancing the set off for all instances all through his time in office. Tonight, he used his State of the Union deal with to deal with the extremism of the pro-abortion agenda most simply currently and completely on present in New York and Virginia, and pressured the need for legal guidelines like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. President Trump has as quickly as as soon as extra demonstrated the paramount significance of defending mothers and their unborn children.
In response, Susan B. Anthony List praised President Trump’s remarks:
“Once again President Trump has proved he is our nation’s most pro-life president ever and he is keeping his promise to the voters who fueled his victory,” acknowledged SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The contrast between President Trump’s vision for the future and that of the Democratic Party, now dominated by abortion extremists, is stark. Senate Democrats had the chance yesterday to prove they are not the party of infanticide, and instead they doubled down on a radical agenda of abortion on demand through birth and even beyond. That position that is simply irreconcilable with the values of the American people. We ask Congress to heed President Trump’s request, and to send the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to his desk without delay. This popular, compassionate legislation would protect unborn babies after five months – more than halfway through pregnancy, and a point at least by which these children can feel the pain of abortion.”
“The greatness of our nation is defined by the way we treat the most innocent and vulnerable among us, and the time for choosing is more pivotal than ever. All decent Americans must stand up, speak out, and defeat abortion extremism at the ballot box in 2020.”
Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins:
“Never sooner than has the distinction between the two occasions been additional clear, as there seems to be no line that the Democratic Party will draw in phrases of defending each life in the womb or the properly being of ladies in abortion companies. And as we observed with Pelosi’s customer, Planned Parenthood has buddies in authorities as a result of it attracts in larger than half-a-billion in taxpayer .
“President Trump’s feedback in help of life are an essential name to motion for all of us. I applaud him for utilizing the bully pulpit to have a good time life.”
