During the chaotic frist presidential debate, President Trump insisted that he has the right to put forth Amy Coney Barrett for the seat on the Supreme Court. The President argued that "elections have consequences" and insisted that judgeship appointments are one of those "consequences."
Pro-choice group NARAL Pro-Choice America criticized Trump for issuing the Born Alive executive order, saying the phrase “born alive” is “an intentionally inflammatory term that is not grounded in medical science.” Clergy Advocacy Board of Planned Parenthood also criticized Trump for the order, saying he and other politicians are “creating a false narrative to score political points.”
On Wednesday, during the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, President Trump announced that he will be signing a "Born Alive" executive order. The order will ensure that babies born alive following attempted abortions receive life-saving medical care.
