President Trump: ‘I’m Strongly Pro-life, With Three Exceptions…’

President Trump: ‘I’m Strongly Pro-life, With Three Exceptions…’ May 19, 2019


President Trump urged Republicans to stay “UNITED” on abortion in a series of tweets late Saturday night and wrote that he is “strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother.” The tweets come just days after Alabama passed the country’s most restrictive abortion law, which bans the procedure unless “abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk” to the woman.

Mr. Trump tweeted “we have come very far in the last two years” by appointing 105 federal judges, but “we must stick together and win … for Life in 2020.”

“If we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one, all of our hard fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear!” Mr. Trump wrote.

The tweet did not mention the Alabama law specifically but appears to be at odds with it, since the law effectively criminalizes abortion and does not make any exceptions for rape and incest. So far, he has remained silent on the Alabama law.

Editorial note: what I think the president probably meant is that he is “strongly anti-abortion, with three exceptions.”
