Trump is Right–Democrats Are Pushing a Radical Agenda on Abortion

In a recent interview with Enrique Acevedo on UnivisionNoticias, former President Donald Trump defended his record on abortion and his nominations of Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. All three of the Trump appointees ruled in favour of the pro-life position in the historic Dobbs vs. Jackson case, which marked a pivotal moment in the Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and return the authority to set abortion policy to the American people and their elected representatives.

Additionally, President Trump criticized the Democratic Party for their endorsement of late abortions and their opposition to measures such as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. This legislation would ensure that infants born alive during unsuccessful abortion attempts receive the same level of medical care as any other infant born at the same gestational age.

“We stopped a very radical agenda, and something will be worked out now because of what we were able to do. That was a tremendous thing when we did it. But, you know, if you look at the agenda, the radicals are really the Democrats because they’ll kill babies in their eighth and ninth month and they’ll kill babies after birth,” Trump stated.

Trump’s assertion is indeed accurate. The Democratic Party’s stance in favour of unrestricted abortion at any stage of pregnancy is arguably a radical one. The failure of the Democratic Party to provide adequate protection for infants who survive abortions is a radical stance.

Despite the portrayal of pro-life candidates as “extreme” by pro-abortion groups and their allies in the media, it is in fact pro-abortion Democrats who are out of touch with voters. A Gallup poll conducted in July 2023 revealed that only 34 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be legal under any circumstances. The same survey revealed that only 37 percent of Americans were in favour of abortions in the second trimester, with a mere 22 percent supporting abortions in the third trimester.

A poll conducted by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist in April 2023 revealed that even among the general Democratic electorate, only 39% of respondents believed that abortion should be available throughout pregnancy. The survey revealed that three-quarters of Independents would limit abortion to the first three months of pregnancy.

A survey of public opinion indicates a high level of support for legislation protecting the unborn child and their mothers. Additionally, the data indicates support for programs and policies that provide assistance and support to pregnant women in need. For instance, a 2022 Pew Research poll revealed that 70 percent of Americans support the requirement of parental notification for minors, including 57 percent of self-described Democrats.

A January 2023 Marist poll revealed that 60 percent of Americans oppose the use of their tax dollars to fund abortions. The same survey revealed that 91% of respondents expressed support for the work of pregnancy help centres.

Nevertheless, President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Congressional Democrats have reinforced their endorsement of a nationwide policy that would permit abortions at any stage of pregnancy for any reason, with taxpayer funding.

The White House and Congressional Democrats continue to advocate for the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, which would establish a legal framework for abortion that would supersede state-level protections for unborn children and their mothers, including parental involvement and informed consent laws. To date, the bill remains an exclusively partisan venture, with no Republican cosponsors in the House or Senate.

The White House and the Democratic Party in Congress continue to oppose the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act with near unanimity. The exceptions to this general consensus are Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Congressman Henry Cuellar of Texas. This legislation, which is based on common sense, would ensure that infants born alive during abortion attempts are afforded the same degree of medical care as any other infant born at the same gestational age. The legislation was passed earlier this year by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
