President Trump is going after Democrats over their support of late-term abortions. In a tweet Thursday, the president accused the left of becoming the party of late-term abortions, high taxes, open borders and crime.

His comments come after Virginia Republicans struck down a Democrat-backed bill, which would allow women to request an abortion up until the point of delivery.

Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam came under fire for his defense of the bill when he said the proposal would essentially allow a mother to decide if she wanted her doctor to resuscitate the child after delivery.
