Trump asks Congress to pass a law banning late abortion

  The president, Donald Trump, today asked Congress to approve legislation to prohibit abortion in later stages.

“Let’s work together to build a culture that values ​​innocent life,” Trump exhorted the congressmen in his second State of the Union speech, in which he lamented that there are procedures that can cause pain to the fetuses in the mother’s womb.

In that context, he urged reaffirming what he considered “a fundamental truth”, since, according to him, “all children, born and unborn, are made to the holy image of God.”

Trump also referred to the decision of the Senate and the Assembly of New York, which approved a package of three measures to protect in that state the decriminalization of abortion.

Although in 1973 the Supreme Court opened the door to the legalization of abortion, in the last decade conservative states, such as Texas, Michigan, Missouri and Virginia, have placed legal restrictions to promote their so-called “pro-life” agenda.

The 1973 ruling, in the “Roe vs. Wade” case, technically did not indicate that abortion is legal, but declared unconstitutional state interference in the decision of the woman on the continuation of her pregnancy.

In recent years, many states have advocated imposing restrictions on abortion claiming to protect the religious rights of those who provide health insurance, which has hindered access to abortive services in much of the US territory. (EFEUSA) .-
