Lila Rose Releases Statement Ahead of 2020 State of the Union
Washington, DC. – Tonight, President Donald J. Trump will address the nation during the annual State of the Union Address.
Lila Rose, President and Founder of Live Action released this statement:
“How we treat our most vulnerable determines the moral strength of our nation. It is likely that the President will again highlight the dignity of the preborn and the need to eradicate the scourge of abortion from our nation’s history.
“One of his special guests this evening, Ellie Schneider, was once completely vulnerable, but she survived being born at 21 weeks and is now 2 years old. It is tragic that babies like Ellie have no legal protection against losing their lives to abortion in certain places across our nation.
“President Trump could make history tonight and save countless lives by making good on his promise to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. No group that commits abortions should receive any taxpayer money, and Planned Parenthood kills 345, 672 Americans per year through abortion and received $616.9 million tax dollars in 2018. It’s time for our country to treat all human life, born and preborn, as equal in worth and dignity.”
