President Trump criticized a proposed Virginia law that would allow women to terminate a pregnancy up to the moment before birth, calling it “terrible” and promising it would “lift up the whole pro-life movement like maybe it’s never been lifted up before.”
Trump discussed the bill in an interview with The Daily Caller that was published late Wednesday.
The legislation became a subject of outrage among conservatives after a video emerged of Virginia Democratic Delegate Kathy Tran answering questions about the bill during a committee hearing. At one point, Tran was asked if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion.
“My bill would allow that, yes.” Tran answered.
“I thought it was terrible,” Trump said of Tran’s statements. “Do you remember when I said [during a 2016 presidential debate] Hillary Clinton was willing to rip the baby out of the womb? That’s what it is, that’s what they’re doing, it’s terrible.”
