March for Life applauds President for highlighting life in State of the Union

 

“We applaud the President for condemning the extremist abortion propositions out of New York and Virginia and for calling on Congress to ban late-term abortion during his State of the Union Address. The American consensus opposes abortion after the first trimester, yet some politicians continue to embrace and perpetuate an unprecedentedly radical pro-abortion agenda. Among them are Virginia Governor Ralph Northam who recently condoned infanticide and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, by bringing Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen as her guest tonight, has pledged her allegiance to an organization that continues to endorse legislation that allows abortion until birth.

While politicians like these are in step with a powerful abortion lobby, they are out of touch with the American people. We ask Congress to heed President Trump’s call to pass legislation prohibiting late-term abortion as well for a quick floor vote in the Senate on the Born-Alive bill so that Governor Northam’s infanticide fantasy may never be reality. It is time for politicians, regardless of party, to stand up in favor of protecting innocent life.”

– Tom McClusky, March for Life Action President
