Our President, Donald Trump has just announced that he will be signing an executive order whose sole purpose is to mandate medical care to all babies in America who are born alive after attempts to abort it. Abortion survivors will be given medical attention to live by this mandate.
“We belive in the joy of family, the blessing of freedom, and the dignity of work. And the eternal truth that every child, born and unborn, is made in the holy image of God,” Trump said in a pre-recorded announcement shown at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.
“I will always protet the vital role of religion and prayer i American society, and I will always defend the sacred right to life,” he added.
“Today, I am announcing that I will be signing the Born-Alive Executive Order to ensure that all precious babies born alive- no matter their circumstances- receive the medical care that they deserve! This is our sacrosanct moral duty.”
The nonprofit, Susan B. Anthony List, has a mission seeking to reduce abortion in the United States praised President Trump after he made the announcement:
“What a contrast with Joe Biden who picked as his running mate Kamala Harris who voted NO on the #BornAlive act which would ensure equal medical care for all infants born alive,” the group said in a statement on Twitter.
The Biden campaign has chosen to remain silent after being asked to comment.
Republicans have tried repeatedly to get the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to pass. The act would require medical staff present at the birth of the child who has survived the abortion procedure, to provide the same level of medical care they would give to children born normally.
The act also requires medical staff to report any and all violations to law enforcement authorities. The penalty for violations of a born-alive child is up to five years in prison, and fines.
The mother of the child would be immune from any civil action or prosecuting.
Trump added that his administration will be increasing federal funding for neonatal research to ensure that every child “has the very best to thrive and to grow.”
President Trump also took the time to tell those present that America is strong because of Catholics and all other people of faith. He also said earlier this month that he plans to work hard to fully defund Planned Parenthood and all other supporting groups that supply abortions if he is voted into a second term.
He describes himself as “the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
In response to Trump, Jenny Lawson, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, said in a statement:
“If it wasn’t clear before, it’s crystal clearn now: A second Trump term would mean four more years of relentless, withering attacks on reproductive health care, including access to safe, legal abortion.”
All I have to say to that is…
