Donald Trump Jr. Slams Dems for Supporting Late-Term Abortion: 'Something's Very Wrong'
'There's truly something wrong with our moral compass.'
Donald Trump Jr. said he was troubled by Democratic lawmakers' reactions throughout Tuesday's State of the Union, but particularly so after his father called on Congress to oppose late-term abortion.
"To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb," President Trump said during his address.
The president's comments come after New York loosened restrictions on abortion, including allowing non-doctors to conduct the procedure, and for it to be done until the mother's due date if the woman's health is endangered or if the fetus is not viable. A similar law was narrowly defeated in the Virginia state senate.
As the president spoke about the sanctity of life, Republicans stood and gave a loud ovation, while nearly all Democrats remained seated quietly.
On Fox & Friends Wednesday morning, Trump Jr. said he understands the debate over abortion, but to condone late-term -- or even post-term -- abortions is "scary stuff."
"If we're having that conversation today, and we're not just outright saying, 'This is ridiculous,' there's truly something wrong with our moral compass," Trump Jr. said.
"And when I watch those Democrats standing there saying that, 'Oh, it's terrible that you can't let someone kill a baby that is in the process of being born, in labor or shortly thereafter, something's very wrong."
