President Trump is telling conservative allies that he plans to address the rising radical pro-abortion stance of Democrats by incorporating firm pro-life language into his State of the Union address.
The President is seizing on the fact that Americans have been widely turned off by extremist lawmakers in New York and Virginia who have advocated for abortion up to the moment of birth or even after.
“The president wants to reaffirm his commitment to pro-life things,” one Republican close to the White House told Politico, though they cautioned that Trump doesn’t plan on delivering a speech that will be “all fire and brimstone.”
Though he’s not expected to call out New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam by name, the President is almost forced to address the fact that both have promoted what amounts to infanticide in their respective states.
New York and Virginia Extremists
President Trump has to address abortion because of how far left the Democrats have moved on the topic.
Cuomo, for instance, celebrated his state’s new abortion legislation that allows termination of the baby up until the moment of birth, for reasons as arbitrary as the future mental health of the mother.
He described the law as “a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health” and a “historic victory for New Yorkers.”
Cuomo went so far as to celebrate the future deaths by lighting up monuments in New York in the color pink.
Northam really dialed up the crazy a notch or two during a radio interview, explaining new legislation that would allow abortions up to birth, then describing that they could actually be considered after birth.
SHOCKING… Northam, Virginia, 3rd trimester abortion
If a mother is in labor… The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. Then discussion would ensue between physician & mother
What discussion.. a discussion whether you can legally murd€r a newborn! pic.twitter.com/hnfRkUlUaA

Americans need to be reminded of these statements. They need to be reminded that Democrats simply want the baby to be made comfortable for a little bit until the doctor can execute the abortion. What kind of nation do we live in that this is a consideration?
Trump, the Pro-Life President
President Trump warned about the desire of Democrats to allow abortion right up until birth during a presidential debate with Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“With what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby,” Trump said. “Now you can say that that’s okay, and Hillary can say that that’s okay, but it’s not okay with me.”
“Because based on what she’s saying, and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day,” he continued. “And that’s not acceptable.”
Clinton dismissed Trump’s comments as “scare rhetoric.”

Trump also called Northam out on social media, saying the Virginia abortion legislation was “the most horrible statement.”
The President has been consistent with his view on abortion since he became a candidate, though many conservatives were trepidatious over his pro-life credentials. He had made statements to the contrary in the past but had evolved on the matter.
“We all have a duty to defend the most basic and fundamental human right — the right to life,” he wrote in a letter to pro-life supporters this past summer. “As President, I am dedicated to protecting the lives of every American including the unborn.”
Somebody has to, because it surely won’t be the resistance party.
