President Trump Calls Abortion ‘Execution’ During Conference Call With Evangelical Leaders by TAYLOR BERGLUND for Charisma News
GNN Note – It is this type of rhetoric used by President Trump that solidifies his base. People have reached a point of saturation with the “politically correct” non-sense and want a leader who uses language, right or wrong, in the manner in Trump uses it.
President Donald Trump reportedly called abortion a form of “execution” during an invitational pro-life conference call held by the president and senior White House officials. The call, which took place at Thursday, Feb. 14, at noon, featured several evangelical and charismatic leaders, including Paula White-Cain, Jim Garlow and Mike Evans.
Evans told Charisma the call focused on the pro-life movement and Trump reminding evangelicals he has fulfilled his campaign promises in that department. Evans says he was included in the call—alongside leaders like James Dobson and Tony Perkins—because he has supported the president since the early primaries. The call was off-the-record for most news outlets, but Evans provided Charisma News permission to print a recap of the conversation based upon his notes.
According to Evans, Trump began by talking about Democratic lawmakers and his efforts to limit their “agenda against pro-life.” He discussed New York’s recent abortion legislation and then commented on Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s support for late-term abortion. Northam supported state legislation in late January that would loosen restrictions on third-trimester abortions.
During a radio interview with WTOP, Northam said, “[Third trimester abortions are] done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s nonviable. So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
