Trump Signs Executive Order Providing Medical Care to All Babies ‘Born Alive’

President Trump, speaking during the annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, vowed to sign an executive order requiring health care be administered to babies born alive.

The President said his executive order would “ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve.”

“We believe in the joy of family, the blessing of freedom, the dignity of work and the eternal truth that every child born and unborn is made in the holy image of God,” he said.

Will Joe Biden defeat President Trump?

 

Trump further stressed the importance of a child’s right to life, calling it a “sacrosanct moral duty.”

Jacqueline Ayers, vice president of government relations and public policy at Planned Parenthood, called the need to protect babies born alive a “nonexistent problem.”

 

Democrats Have Opposed ‘Born Alive’ Legislation

Republican Senator Ben Sasse introduced a bill titled the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” in February of last year.

The roll call vote of the legislation, which would have required doctors to administer aid to infants who survive an attempted abortion, was thwarted by a filibuster despite a bipartisan majority of 53-44.

Six Democrats who ran for the Democrat nomination for President reportedly voted against the bill, including current Vice President nominee Kamala Harris.

 

President Trump called it “one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.”

The Supreme Court and Abortion

President Trump’s vow to sign an executive order protecting babies born alive counters Democrats and the media who are currently fretting over the next Supreme Court Justice nomination.

Why? Because they fear Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hysterically declared that Republicans are “coming after your children” while simultaneously suggesting Trump was “on a path to undo a woman’s right to choose.”

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) had Roe v. Wade at the top of her list in a tweet claiming “our basic rights … are on the line” when it comes to the SCOTUS nomination.

 

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) unironically called the Supreme Court fight a “life or death” situation while mentioning the landmark abortion case.

 

Other prominent Democrats revealed the importance of the abortion fight as well.

 

Some in the media, seemingly in time with the Democrat party, conveyed similar messages of doom and gloom.

MSNBC alleged without evidence that “Trump and his legal allies are preparing to replace Justice Ginsburg with a judge who will vote to ban abortion in the U.S.”

Amy Coney Barrett, speculated to be the frontrunner for the nomination to the Supreme Court, has discussed her views on Roe v. Wade in the past.

“I don’t think the core case, Roe’s core holding that, you know, women have a right to an abortion, I don’t think would change,” she said during a discussion at Jacksonville University in 2016.

“But I think the question of whether people can get very late-term abortions, how many restrictions can be put on clinics, I think that would change.”

UPDATE: President Trump signed the executive order over the weekend.
