President Trump on Saturday night tweeted that he is "strongly pro-life," but, like former President Ronald Reagan, supports three exceptions for abortions — rape, incest, and when it is necessary to protect the life of the mother. The tweet comes just days after Alabama's state legislature passed a near-total ban on abortion, which does not allow any exceptions for rape or incest. The governors of Missouri and Georgia signed their own restrictive abortion bills last week, as well, as part of a movement to overturn Roe V. Wade. This is the first time Trump has publicly commented on the recent wave of abortion laws.
