90 minutes. That’s how long President Trump has spoken. He has made it an historical address. One that will long be remember by every pro-life advocate.
In his speech, President Trump has called out Governors Andrew Cuomo and Ralph Northam for their support of infanticide and late term abortion. In his words:
“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.
And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”
He goes on to encourage a culture that embraces all life because: “all children are made in the image of God.”
Sadly many members of congress, a majority of them women, were wearing white pantsuits to support woman. They seem to have forgotten the many women who have been aborted worldwide in countries like China, India, and North Korea.
In addition to slamming the recent infanticide bills, President Trump took time to honor Joshua Kaufman (man saluting a soldier waving), a survivor of the Dachau Concentration Camp. He also acknowledged the presence of two survivors of the Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting last October. One was Judah Samet. Samet was no stranger to survivor as he also survived the Jewish holocaust during World War II. The other survivor was Timothy Matson, a member of the Pittsburgh Police Department who helped saved dozens of lives during the heinous hate crime that fateful day.
It is time to take to heart our president’s words to build a culture that respects and nourishes life from the moment of conception until natural death. It will be a long and challenging task at hand, yet love, truth, and mercy is on our side. We must not lose sight of hope in the culture of despair and death.
