There was one specific moment during President Trump’s State of the Union Address where the Democrats sat motionless while the rest of Congress cheered. The moment when President Trump called for a ban on late term abortion is the moment that Democrats lost touch with the rest of the country.
As reported by dailycaller.com
President Donald Trump blasted late-term abortion legislation and slammed Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam in his Tuesday night address to the nation, as he vowed to protect the lives of unborn children.
Wow. That is quite the message. Democrats, including all those women in white, sit motionless at the call to restrict late-term abortion–which polls show 70-80% of public disapproves. Who is out of step with the country? #SOTU

“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,” Trump said, pointing to the passage and introduction of extreme abortion legislation. Among those displays is “the case of the Governor of Virginia [who] … basically stated he would execute a baby after birth,” Trump said, referring to comments Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam made Wednesday appearing to condone infanticide.
“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb,” Trump continued. The president’s remarks refer to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced Monday by Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse. The bill would mandate that babies born in abortion clinics be immediately given medical attention and taken to the hospital.
“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life,” Trump said. “And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God.”
