“There is no such thing as abortion until or after birth,” Planned Parenthood Action declares in a pinned tweet responding to President Donald Trump’s comment that Democrats have become “so extreme they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth."

Technically, ending a baby’s life “after birth” is infanticide, not "abortion."

In addition to claiming there is no such thing as abortion, either before or after birth, Planned Parenthood also claims that it is Trump’s position on abortion that is “so extreme”:

“There is no such thing as abortion until or after birth. Trump's position on abortion is so extreme that he lies to the American public to incite fear & violence against women making personal decisions & abortion providers trying to provide their patients the best care possible.”

Planned Parenthood’s tweet responds to a Monday tweet by Trump after Senate Democrats successful blocked an anti-infanticide bill:

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.”
