Trump: Mothers Decide With Doctors Whether To Execute Their Babies After Birth

The President has made it no secret that he is opposed to a woman’s right to choose. That position, which in lockstep with the GOP’s religious base, is not necessarily surprising for a Republican President.

However, the President has decided to take his anti-abortion stance a step further. At a rally over the weekend in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Trump painted a very clear and disturbing picture of what is happening in hospitals across the country. When talking about abortion, the President stated:

“The baby is born, the mother meets w/the doctor. They take care of the baby. They wrap the baby beautifully. Then the doctor and mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.”

The statement leaves nothing to the imagination: The President of the United States claims that mothers and their doctors decide whether to commit murder after a baby is born. Although the claim is patently false, the President seems to be referring to the rare instances in which late-term abortions fail. However, these situations are still handled in a manner that is radically different than what the President claims. In the extremely rare scenario where abortions fail, babies are not “executed.”

The President’s comments came during attacks he was levying against Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who has announced that he will veto Republican legislation that would give doctors life in prison for failing to do everything in their power to keep a baby alive after a failed abortion attempt. North Carolina Governor Gary Cooper recently vetoed similar “born alive” legislation.

The President also took aim at Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a pediatric neurologist who supported a bill loosening abortion restrictions in Virginia.

“Until this crazy man in Virginia said it, nobody even thought of that. Did anyone even think of that? You hear late-term, but this is when the baby is actually born, it came out, it’s there, it’s wrapped and that’s it.”

The President seems committed to focusing on this issue, and framing the Democrats as “baby-killers.” His comments, which portray abortion doctors as murderers, simply do not bear out. Outraged activists, authors & elected officials took to twitter to voice their displeasure with the Presidents comments.
