Donald Trump Slams Northam’s Nasty Abortion Comments at SOTU
By Breitbart. President Donald Trump slammed Virginia Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments on late-term abortion in front of several conservative leaders at a State of the Union preview meeting Monday evening, according to a Tuesday report.
Politico reported that Trump spoke for five minutes with conservative leaders— including pro-life advocates Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins and Susan B. Anthony List’s Marjorie Dannenfelser— about how it was outrageous that public officials were thinking about including newborn babies in discussions about allowing late-term abortions.
In his comments, Trump referenced Northam’s remarks about “nonviable” newborn babies.
“When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician—more than one physician, by the way—and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities,” Northam said in a Wednesday radio interview with WTOP. “There may be a fetus that’s non-viable.”
According to Politico, attendees left thinking the president viewed Northam’s inflammatory statements on the same level as murder. (Read more from “Donald Trump Slams Northam’s Nasty Abortion Comments at SOTU” HERE)
