Recently, an abortion bill has been introduced in Virginia that has been making headlines around the nation. The new late-term abortion legislation "would effectively allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment of birth," The Daily Caller reports.

Since Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam advocated for the new bill, many people have been rattled at what exactly the bill will allow. According to Tran, a woman would be able to request an abortion up until the time she delivered her baby.

In a recent interview, President Trump didn't hold back when expressing his thoughts on this legislation.

“I thought it was terrible,” Trump said in regard to Tran’s statements. “Do you remember when I said Hillary Clinton was willing to rip the baby out of the womb? That’s what it is, that’s what they’re doing, it’s terrible.”

Gov. Northam later backed up Tran and her position on lifting the ban on third-trimester abortions and said, “If a mother is in labor...the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians & mother."

President Trump went on to say in his interview that with all the discussions now about late-term abortions and what it exactly entails, he hopes it will continue to grow the pro-life movement.

“This is going to lift up the whole pro-life movement like maybe it’s never been lifted up before. The pro-life movement is very much a 50-50, it’s a very 50-50 issue, actually, it’s gained a point or two over the years," the president said.
