As Democrats are still reeling from abortion scandals in New York and Virginia, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has decided to invite Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen as her guest for Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, announced the news on Tuesday.
“Tonight, we expect President Trump to address abortion and reproductive rights – no doubt doubling down on the attacks we’ve seen over the last two years,” the group said in a statement. “Dr. Wen’s attendance is significant at a time when women’s reproductive rights are under constant threat, and is a symbolic reminder that majority of Americans support access to safe and legal abortion.”
Sticking to the liberal strategy of referring to the brutal abortion procedure as “reproductive health care,” Dr. Wen released her own statement as well.
“Last November, American voters — particularly women and women of color — sent a clear message: we want our elected representatives to protect and expand access to reproductive health care, including the right to safe, legal abortion,” she said.
She continued: “Planned Parenthood is proud to have Speaker Pelosi’s leadership of a pro-reproductive health House of Representatives. And we look forward to working with her to advance a pro-women, pro-family, and pro-economy agenda that affirms health care as a fundamental human right, and women’s rights—and all people’s rights—as human rights.”
What Democrats won’t want to talk about is the fact that their party in Virginia horrified Americans by proposing legislation to allow abortion up until the moment of birth, and possibly even after birth. To make matters worse, embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam seemingly defended infanticide when he tried to defend the merits of the pro-abortion bill.
In New York, Democrats also stunned America by doing away with most restrictions on abortions after 24 weeks, using very loose language to ensure abortions would be easy to obtain.
In a grotesque display that previously went viral, Democrats were seen cheering for the abortion bill.
Dr. Wen and Planned Parenthood should be prepared to hear a strong pro-life message from President Trump during his State of the Union address on Tuesday. It's clear which party supports life.
