President Donald Trump said he is pro-life but he has some exceptions when it comes to the practice of abortion. 

The president took to Twitter Saturday night to speak about his stance on the subject. 

President Trump said online he is “strongly pro-life” but he added that he believes there should be three exceptions when it comes to a woman getting an abortion. 

“…Rape, incest and protecting the life of the mother,” Trump wrote online. 

He said his is the same position previously taken by Ronald Reagan. 

“We must stick together and win for life in 2020,” he added. 

The tweets come on the heels of several states passing strict new abortion laws.
