Trump Declares He’s ‘Strongly Pro-Life’ Except in Cases of ‘Rape, Incest and Protecting Life of the Mother’

Late Saturday night, President Donald Trump issued a series of tweets declaring he was strongly pro-life except in the cases of “rape, incest and protecting the life of the mother.”

He added that his position was the same as Ronald Reagan‘s.

“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother – the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” Trump wrote.

He continued on: “We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new Federal Judges (many more to come), two great new Supreme Court Justices, the Mexico City Policy, and a whole new & positive attitude about the Right to Life.”

Trump further wrote: “The Radical Left, with late-term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue. We must stick together and win for Life in 2020. If we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one, all of our hard fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear!”

It is unclear what prompted Trump’s late-night tweet.

However, after restrictive abortion ban was signed into law in Alabama, even some conservatives balked, noting it was bad for the party and 2020 strategy.
