    Please Mr President Trump, leave abortion alone,
    for it is a right- a woman's inalienable right to her
    own body. Not even a fetus can claim a 'right' to
    any part of another human being. Reproductive
    organs are inalienable from the woman to whom
    they belong. They cannot be expropriated for the
    duration of a fetus development to full term. To do
    so is to treat woman as barnyard animals and to
    engage in animal husbandry. I cannot claim a
    right to your eyes AND a fetus cannot claim a right
    to another's womb. Therefore, a fetus is and will
    only ever be, inside the womb by permission, and
    never "by right". A woman always has the right to
    evict/abort a fetus. AMERICA is a country founded
    on individual rights, "rights", in short.
    **Mr President, I want you to win in 2020!!**

    There are enough poor black and brown and white people who have been here for hundreds of years who need opportunity and jobs and resources. This is the real starting point.

      SUGAR XYLER ! I wouldn’t go that far. Tbh there is a reason the work is at 7 billion, and is staying steady, it’s because the earth can feed 7 billion. We are just poor managers of the population and resources.

    Can he answer any of these questions without mudslinging at the democrats? The hypocrisy of his statement on politics before people is too much to bear.
    This press conference might as well have been a Fox News broadcast.

      No because that's all they have. They can't back any of their claims with facts or accept the fact that it's really Republicans responsible for all this so they blame it all on Dems.

      OK, keep lying to yourself. Everything I said is verifiable. Even the partial birth abortions.

      Nope, not true. He said after delivery the doctor will make the infant comfortable then the woman and the doctor will have a conversation regarding the child. And NY has a partial birth abortion where the baby's body is hanging out of the mother & the doctor cuts the spine at the neck. Then stabs the baby at the base of the skull killing it.

      Toxic Grunt no, that’s a lie. If you are talking about the interview that Virginia politician gave; he specifically said none-viable fetuses and babies with extreme deformities...they aren’t talking about perfect healthy baby!

    Republicans and Trump want to cut government assistance. This includes the single mothers. Republicans want to outlaw abortions and cut assistance and punish young woman who gave in to biology. What happens to the kids when society turns on them. If Abortion is to be outlawed, maybe a mans penis should cut off, if he follows his biological impulses, and knocks a young girl up. There would be a lot of eunuchs in the Republican ranks.

    Don’t get fooled. Outlawing abortions is the benign way for white men to assert power -- over women.

      @Toxic Grunt lets do the math. From the beginning of the filibuster in the 1930's. till Obama was elected the republicans uses the filibuster 60+ times. Then after Obama was elected the republicans used the filibuster 80+ times in 8 years. Think about that! Under Obama republican congress broke all the records for obstructionist. Republicans in full control of the government for over 2 years were obstructing each other so much they were only able to pass one bill into law which was tax breaks for the rich! Hate democrats that's fine but republicans hold the national record on obstruction.

      @Peter Throp life And, why are you so lazy? You have the internet at your fingertips, just like the rest of us, don't you? How hard is it to research this? If you're interested in the truth of the matter, and you don't want to take some random stranger on TheXvid's word for it, why would you not just look it up? This is not a debate forum! This is the comment section of a TheXvid video!

    The question he needs to answer is, why is abortion any of his business? If he is not a woman seeking an abortion or the man who got her pregnant, what business is it of his whether she gets one, or not?

      So a woman being attacked can only be helped by women cops, police men stand down. Or a woman who's house is on fire has to call an all woman fire team, fire men stay at the station. Or a woman being haunted can only call the women Ghost Busters. Right...

    It has been pointed out that this Alabama law has been signed by 25 white men. All I have to say is thank you to white men for sticking up for the unborn and having a sense of moral decency, and this is coming from a Hispanic woman!
