President Donald Trump has revealed a preview into his State of the Union address, and he plans to knockout a top Democratic talking point.
Trump plans to use his primetime address on Tuesday night to deliver a pro-life message in response to the radical abortion lawsbeing pushed in states like New York and Virginia.
Sources close to the White House have confirmed that President Trump has told conservative allies he wants to push the abortion issue during his speech next week.
“President Donald Trump is telling conservative allies he wants to incorporate firm anti-abortion language into his State of the Union address Tuesday, and potentially include an anti-abortion figure among his list of invitees, according to four sources familiar with his plans,” reports the outlet.
While certainly the morally correct move, President Trump’s decision to push the abortion issue so forcefully is also politically momentous, considering that it will galvanize his evangelical base and possibly persuade moderate voters.
“Trump sees an opening to energize his evangelical supporters and capture moderate voters who administration officials believe may be turned off by widespread coverage of New York’s newest abortion law, which allows for termination of some pregnancies after the 24-week mark for health reasons,” notes Politico.
Trump’s planned pro-life message in support of life comes as Democrats in New York and Virginia are pushing radical abortion laws.
Late last month, New York passed a law allowing unborn babies to be aborted on the day of birth.
The Reproductive Health Act passed with a 38-28 vote and was signed into law by New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Last week, Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam — who is currently engulfed in allegations that he may have been dressed in “blackface” or a Ku Klux Klan outfit in his medical school yearbook — voiced support for legislation that would have allowed women in his state to request an abortion up to the moment before they are about to give birth.
During an interview Wednesday on WTOP, Northam made several highly disturbing and sickening comments about essentially killing an infant after birth.
When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician, by the way,” Northam said.
“In this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So I think this was really blown out of proportion,” he added.
“Legislators, most of whom are men by the way, shouldn’t be telling a woman what she should and shouldn’t be doing with her body,” Northam said later in the interview.
The Virginia state legislature, which is narrowly controlled by Republicans, rejected the measure.
When Trump addresses the nation at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday night, he’s prepared to condemn these laws and deliver a powerful pro-life message.
