President Trump criticized supporters of late-term abortion and urged Congress to pass a fetal pain law Tuesday in what were some of the most candid comments about the issue ever given in a State of the Union address.
The remarks came immediately after both sides of the aisle applauded Trump for including in his budget “a plan for nationwide paid family leave,” which he said gave “every new parent” the chance “to bond with their newborn child.”
Trump then pivoted to abortion.
“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,” Trump said. “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.”
Pro-lifers in the chamber rose to their feet, while pro-choicers — including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat — remained seated.

Gentile heathenish misconceptions especially in recent times, give careless interpretation of scriptural words (e.g. works, law and grace) thereby breeding confusion that cannot distinguish: –
• between our personal good “WORKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS” which we do, and priestly ritual “WORKS OF THE LAW” which is done for us (Eph 2:8-10; Tit 3:5-8);
• between personal MORAL PRECEPTS in the commandments, concessions and counsels of the law (i.e. spirit of the law), and priestly MEDIATORIAL POWERS in the cleansing ceremonies of the law (i.e. works of the law);
• between shadowy, temporal and external cleansing of RITUAL LAW of SACRIFICES performed repeatedly by sinful Levites with ANIMAL BLOOD provided by sinners, and substantive, eternal and internal cleansing of REDEMPTIVE GRACE of SALVATION perfected once-for-all by sinless Christ with His PRECIOUS BLOOD provided by God (Heb 9:23-25; 10:8-14).
