President Trump Was Right: CDC Confirms 143 Babies Born Alive After Abortions, Left to Die by TIM GRAHAM for Life News
The “fact checkers” at Associated Press were the latest to fulminate against President Trump mocking Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam about executing babies born alive after an abortion attempt. The tweet was mockable: “The reality behind President Trump’s false accusation that abortion doctors execute babies.” Apparently, abortion doctors just kill….germs? Cellular clumps?
NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump, in what’s become a staple of his rallies, accuses doctors of executing babies who are born alive after a failed abortion attempt.
His comments, meant to taint Democrats, have been embraced by many anti-abortion activists, and assailed as maliciously false by many medical professionals.
Crary quotes two medical professionals, both from the left: Cara Heuser, who recentlytestified against a Utah bill limiting abortions to before 18 weeks of gestation, and Diane Horvath, “a fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Health and medical director of Whole Woman’s Health, which operates abortion clinics in several states.”
This is how Crary set up the “fact checking.”
TRUMP: “Democrats are aggressively pushing late-term abortion, allowing children to be ripped from their mother’s womb, right up until the moment of birth. The baby is born and you wrap the baby beautifully and you talk to the mother about the possible execution of the baby.” — rally in Panama City Beach, Florida, on Wednesday.
THE FACTS: Federal data suggests that very few U.S. babies are born alive as a result of a failed abortion. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded 143 deaths between 2003 and 2014 involving infants born alive during attempted abortions.
Trump’s first sentence isn’t about born-alive abortions, and is factual as applied to the New York law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and factual as applied to the Democratic Party’s position in favor of “expanding access” to abortion on demand.
