Not long after severely criticizing President Donald Trump over his declaration of support earlier this month for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the mainstream media was forced to admit that he was right when he exposed statistics shining light on the radical pro-abortion laws existing in the United States.
He called American legislation out when he brought up radical pro-abortion laws that give women the go-ahead to kill preborn children legally – children who have already lived in the womb for months.
“The United States is currently out of the mainstream in the family of nations, in which only 7 out of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy,” Trump proclaimed on October 2, according to LifeSiteNews.
It was not long before the U.S. House of Representatives moved forward to approve the protection – the very next day.
However, numerous critics criticized Trump for charging that when it comes to abortion laws, the U.S. is as permissive as China. In the name of so-called “population control,” the communist government of this atheistic Asian nation has mandated that parents who already have one child must abort any children they conceive.
For decades, inhumane treatment of preborn children has been allowed by American law – essentially prohibiting all successive commander-in-chiefs from executing the primary role of their job … to protect lives … including those of the innocent and most vulnerable.
“The infamous Roe v Wade Supreme Court decree arbitrarily segregated pregnancy into three 13-week ‘trimesters’ based on the earliest gestational ‘viability’ of the baby at about 26 weeks (the third ‘trimester’),” LifeSiteNews’ Mark Hodges informed. “The nation’s highest court declared that only after ‘viability’ did states have the right to limit abortions – unless the mother’s ‘health’ was in jeopardy. However, Roe‘s accompanying decision, Doe v Bolton, defined ‘health’ in such broad terms that abortion-on-demand was effectively legalized throughout all nine months of pregnancy.”
Trump was right
The president’s assertion about the U.S.’s ultra-liberal abortion law was found to be based in the facts coming from groups on both sides of the abortion debate – including the latest data published by the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute.
“The group analyzed abortion laws in 198 countries and other independent or ‘semiautonomous’ regions with more than 1 million residents,” The Washington Post reported. “There are 59 countries that allow abortion ‘without restriction as to reason,’ or ‘elective,’ or ‘abortion on demand.’”
The organization provided further detail on abortion laws spanning the globe.
“These  are countries where the letter of the federal law does not impose specific eligibility requirements for women,” the Charlotte Lozier Institute’s 2014 report states. “The other 139 countries ‘require some reason to obtain an abortion, ranging from most restrictive (to save the life of the mother or completely prohibited) to least restrictive (socioeconomic grounds) with various reasons in between (e.g., physical health, mental health).”
It was found that the U.S. is among only six other radical pro-abortion nations on the planet when it comes to not protecting the preborn after living in the womb for 20 or more months – making America one of the most pro-abortion countries on Earth.
“Only seven of the 59 countries allow elective abortions after 20 weeks, the group found: Canada, China, Netherlands, North Korea, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam,” the Post relayed from the report.
The pro-abortion ReproductiveRights.org corroborated these statistics.
“This list of countries correlates with another similar report, also from 2014, published by a group that supports reproductive rights,” the Post’s Michelle Ye Hee Lee reported. “That group’s report found 61 countries that allow abortion ‘without restriction as to reason,’ though some of these countries had parental authorization or notification requirements. Most of the countries had a 12-week gestational limit on abortions.”
After looking at the facts, the left-leaning daily in the nation’s capital had to admit Trump was right in his assertion.
“[Trump’s] statistic seemed dubious at first, because it seemed extreme for just seven countries out of 198 to allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, [b]ut upon further digging, the data back up the claim,” the Post reporter conceded. “Further, what is telling that research from both sides of the reproductive rights debate confirm this figure.”
In fact, the D.C. daily went on to commend Trump.
“We award the elusive ‘Geppetto Checkmark’ when a factoid surprisingly turns out to be true, as in this case,” the Postdeclared.
More false claims by Planned Parenthood
However, the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, did not fare as well against the fact checkers when it made this claim on social media:
It was called out for its deception.
“A Planned Parenthood claim that 60 percent of Americans oppose a 20-week abortion ban, on the other hand, did not pass the Fact Checker’s scrutiny in 2015 when similar legislation was being debated,” Townhall reported. “Planned Parenthood still tweeted out this statistic last week despite earning Two Pinocchios for ‘significant omissions and/or exaggerations’ when it made the same claim two years ago.”
When it comes down to it, most Americans stand with Trump when it comes to abortion.
“Americans generally are opposed to abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy,” the Post’s Lee announced. “A 2013 Washington Post-ABC News poll found 56 percent of voters preferred limiting unrestricted abortion rights to 20 weeks – rather than 24 weeks.”
The holes in Planned Parenthood’s claim were pointed out.
“[The Post’s Fact Checker] concluded that the 2013 Planned Parenthood poll, that the abortion giant recycled both in 2015 and 2017, referenced only specific situational questions such as abortion in case of rape or if the fetus is not viable,” Townhall’s Lauretta Brown noted. “They called the claim ‘misleading’ since it ‘did not specify that it was asking about terminating a pregnancy 22 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period’ and ‘did not test for the actual bill under consideration.’”
