During his historic, in-person remarks at the 47th annual March for Life on Friday, President Donald Trump criticized abortion comments made by Virginia Democratic Gov.
After going through a list of his administration's efforts to protect unborn children from abortion, the president turned his comments to Democrats, who "have embraced the most radical and extreme positions taken and seen in this country for years and decades, and you could even say for centuries."
One such example that Trump gave to back this up was Northam, who last year became the subject of national controversy — before his subsequent blackface controversy — for comments he made about post-birth abortion last January.
While discussing a highly controversial state-level abortion bill in a radio interview last year, Northam suggested that its provisions allowed for abortions after birth, e.g.
As another example of Democrats' abortion extremism, Trump pointed to the New York state legislators who "cheered with delight" for a bill allowing abortion up until birth as well as Senate Democrats' vote to block legislation to mandate medical care for the survivors of attempted abortions, both of which also took place last year.
