Statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address

Tonight, President Trump drew a clear line that he is squarely on the side of Life and will fight abortion and infanticide. He called on Congress to stop the barbaric late-term abortions of healthy, beautiful children performed daily by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. Promoting common sense, consensus pro-life policies such as withdrawing taxpayer subsidies from the abortion industry and cracking down on the criminal trafficking of baby body parts is a cause both Democrats and Republicans could and should support. The U.S. Departments of Justice and of Health and Human Services should follow the President’s lead and do their job to enforce the law against partial-birth abortion and the sale of baby body parts.
