Trump has been enjoying one success after another. Yet one of the biggest problems he faces is support from his own party.
During the election, ‘NeverTrumpers’ opposed his campaign. Even after winning, several notable Republicans continued to defy the new Commander-in-Chief.
In recent months, that seemed to end. Republicans got on board to vote for historic tax cuts. The party seems to be getting in line with President Trump’s vision for America.
However, the country was stunned when two Republicans violated their supporters’ convictions. In the worst possible way.
From Daily Wire:
On Monday, Senate Democrats declined to implement a ban on abortions past 20 weeks, or five months into a pregnancy, known as the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”
Only three Democrats — Indiana’s Joe Donnelly, Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin — voted for the ban, along with 48 Republican senators. Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine also disgracefully refused to protect life, voting “no” to the bill…
On Monday, President Donald Trump expressed disappointment with the rejection of the 20-week abortion ban, putting us in the company of China and North Korea…
Pres Trump calls it disappointing that Senate failed to pass bill to bar abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Says it puts US "out of the mainstream in the family of nations" and in the company of China & North Korea in allowing elective abortions after 20 weeks.

Here’s what an opinion piece published in Newsweek (a left-wing outlet) has to say about what we know about life in the womb at 20-weeks:
…Ultrasounds show unborn babies at five months of pregnancy sucking their thumb, yawning, stretching and making faces—detailed 3-D images that we haven’t seen until the last decade. In utero, these babies have 10 fingers, 10 toes, a beating heart and unique DNA that is different than the mom and the dad—they are humans that deserve the right to live. Thusly, this is a human rights issue.
All but three Democrats and two Republicans voted to murder these unborn people. Say all you want about immigration, economics, and national security. There should be no division when it comes to abortion. This barbaric and outdated practice must come to an end.
In this day and age, we know even more about human development than ever before. There is no denying that an unborn child is alive and deserves the same rights as every American. The 20-week ban was a step in the right direction. It would acknowledge what we’ve learned over the last forty years.
Those that voted against it aren’t only heartless killers, but they are denying basic science.
All for what? So that vile feminists can continue to claim abortion is a women’s rights issue? I guess they don’t care about women in the womb.
Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are traitors. Not only to the Republican Party, but to the human race. Imagine all the children who will die, thanks to their vote.
It’s time for every pro-choice politician to be ejected from office.
