During his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Trump called on Congress to ban abortion because "every child is a precious and sacred gift from God."
“As we pray for all who are sick, we know that America is constantly achieving new medical breakthroughs. In 2017, doctors at St. Luke’s hospital in Kansas City delivered one of the earliest premature babies ever to survive,” Trump said.
Little to most people's knowledge, Trump invited Ellie Schneider and her mother, Robin, to the SOTU. Ellie is one of the youngest babies to survive in the United States after being born at just 21 weeks and six days. Now she is a happy, thriving two year old.
“Born at just 21 weeks and six days and weighing less than a pound, Ellie Schneider was a born fighter. Through the skill of her doctors and the prayers of her parents, little Ellie kept on winning the battle of life. Today Ellie is a strong, healthy two-year-old girl, sitting with her amazing mother Robin in the gallery. Ellie and Robin, we are glad to have you with us tonight," he continued.
“Ellie reminds us that every child is a miracle of life, and thanks to modern medical wonders, 50 percent of very premature babies delivered at the hospital where Ellie was born now survive,” Trump exclaimed, “Our goal should be to ensure that every baby has the best chance to thrive and grow just like Ellie. That is why I’m asking Congress to provide an additional $50 million to fund neonatal research for America’s youngest patients.”
“That is why I’m also calling upon members of Congress here tonight to pass legislation finally banning the late-term abortion of babies,” Trump added. “Whether we are Republican, Democrat or independent, surely we must all agree that every human life is a sacred gift from God.”

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions starting at 20 weeks, would require Republicans retaking the US House of Representatives in November, and Republicans to either win a 60-vote Senate majority or modify the current filibuster rules.
As president, Trump has reinstated and expanded the ban on foreign aid to abortion-involved groups (including International Planned Parenthood Federation), banned groups that commit or refer abortions from Title X family planning funds, overturned Obama-era regulations that barred states from defunding Planned Parenthood, and issued rules protecting Americans from being forced to subsidize abortion in government-mandated health insurance plans.
The president has also forcefully denounced abortion, calling attention to Democrats’ opposition to anti-infanticide legislation and calling on Congress to send him a ban on late-term abortion to sign. Most of his judicial nominees have pleased pro-lifers, as well.
President Trump also made history last month as the first sitting president to attend the March for Life rally.

Jeb Bush Gets ATTACKED for What He Said About Super Bowl Half Time Show
Even though I’m a big football fan, I must admit that I didn’t watch the Super Bowl on Sunday night, at least not all of it.
I did happen to catch about half of the last quarter to see how the game would end because the ends of football games can always go in any direction. Just think back to the Patriots and Falcons Super Bowl a few years ago. Plus, I’ve seen how the Chiefs have been playing lately and I thought that even though they were down, that they might make one heck of a comeback…I was right. Continue reading…
