“President Donald Trump should send liberals a big fat thank-you note.
For each day Americans see how truly radical the Democratic Party has become is a win for the president, who, by contrast, looks like a full-blown moderate.
Take Democrats’ extreme swing to the left on women’s reproductive issues. What used to be a party that said abortion should be safe, legal and rare is now pushing hard in Virginia, Rhode Island and beyond for legalized late-term abortion on demand — meaning a woman could get an abortion at any time during a pregnancy, up until the baby’s birth. Never mind the fact that science has proved that at 20 weeks, a fetus can feel pain and that many babies can live outside the womb after gestating for just six months.
That’s irrelevant to such abortion radicals as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who just inked legislation — proposed by Democrats — allowing such a barbaric practice to take place. Make no mistake; late-term abortion and partial-birth abortion are not mainstream practices outside the U.S. by any means. In fact, only six other countries allow the grisly practice — North Korea is one — as billions of compassionate humans worldwide consider the termination of a 9-month-old baby in utero or born alive to be infanticide.”
