Rebecca Kiessling of Save the 1, who was conceived in rape and now is a voice against killing children for the crimes of their fathers, lamented the president’s post, writing on social media, “There’s nothing quite like getting singled out for death by your president.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) Amid a number of states considering bills this legislative season surrounding concerns over the ongoing murder of unborn children, President Trump posted a series of tweets on Saturday evening in which he reiterated that he identifies as pro-life, but believes in the exceptions of rape, incest and the life of the mother.
“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly pro-life, with the three exceptions — rape, incest and protecting the life of the mother — the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” he tweeted.
Trump then touted his achievements in his tenure and urged Americans to stick with him for the next election.
“We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new federal judges (many more to come), two great new Supreme Court justices, the Mexico City Policy, and a whole new & positive attitude about the right to life,” he wrote. “The radical Left, with late term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue.”
