As I watched the State of the Union address, it hit me. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a President make such a bold and compelling case in defense of life and to end horrific late-term abortions in the State of the Union address.
President Trump’s powerful words are worth reading again:
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.
The President used the State of the Union to draw attention to the new barbaric abortion law in New York that would allow babies to be killed up until the moment of birth. He called out Virginia’s governor who promoted a bill that would allow infanticide, explaining how the governor “stated he would execute a baby after birth.” And finally, he demanded Congress act to end late-term abortions of babies who science has proven feel pain.
This is something we have been advocating for at the ACLJ for years.
In fact, the United States is one of only seven nations in the world that allow these horrific late-term abortions. America joins such human rights stalwarts as North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Singapore, as well as Canada and the Netherlands. Think about that. We are only one of seven countries that allow this barbarity.
Congress must act to end it now. That is why the ACLJ continues to call for the passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
The President then moved to his policy priorities to protect American security. His transition made a powerful point. The security of all Americans starts in the womb.
That’s where we must start. We must defend the lives of unborn babies and the lives of babies who are born alive. Now is the time to act.
We’re fighting the abortion industry and defending the unborn in court and in Congress. Defend life with your tax-deductible gift today.
The Fight for Life is an issue that drives much of our work at the ACLJ, and now it’s proving to be the cultural issue that will shape the 2020 presidential election and the future of our nation. Today on the show, we discussed the battle for life taking place in our state legislatures across the...
In a victory for countless unborn babies, another state is defying the pro-abortion Left and Planned Parenthood as they try to push their extreme late-term abortion laws on our nation. Missouri is on the verge of becoming the latest state to pass a Heartbeat Bill that bans abortions after a fetal...
On May 3, 2019, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) issued a request to the French Government to halt the euthanasia of Vincent Lambert while the CRPD Committee reviews the petition by Mr. Lambert’s parents requesting the same. This request has caused confusion and...
Two federal judges have now issued nationwide injunctions blocking new federal regulations that would have defunded as much as $60 million in taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest abortion business. Now these cases are headed to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the...
