On May 18, President Trump tweeted, “As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions — Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother — the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” President Trump.
News of that statement was buried in the single page USA Today insert in the failing, Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic.
Awarded prominent placement on the falsely named “Opinions” page, which carries echoing drumbeat letters, is a letter comparing President Trump to Henry VIII, who the letter writer asserts, “had his wives beheaded for not bearing a child.”
The oversize headline placed on her foolish letter is: IN TRUMP’S ERA,THE RIGHT GOES EXTREME ON ABORTION POLICY.”
While President Trump holds a pro-life stance, he has drawn a distinction between himself and the recently passed Alabama bill signed by Gov. Kay Ivey. Under the new law, doctors in the state face felony jail time up to 99 years if convicted, although a woman would not be held criminally liable for having an abortion. The only exception to the law would be when the pregnancy endangers the woman’s health or there is a fetal abnormality. HB314 / ACT 189 can be read here.
Georgia and Missouri have recently passed similar laws. They are intended to mount a Supreme Court challenge to Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the slaughter of millions of American babies since it was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court January 22, 1973.
