Leading Anti-Abortion Group Breaks With Trump Over Latest Announcement

Washington D.C., USA - January 22, 2015; A Pro-Life woman clashes with a group of Pro-Choice demonstrators at the U.S. Supreme Court.

On Monday, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump made his stance on abortion clearer by stating he believes abortion laws should be decided by the states.

In an announcement on Truth Social on Monday, Trump said he was proud to be the president responsible for overturning Roe v. Wade.

“My view is now that we have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land,” Trump said. “In this case, the law of the state.”

“Many states will be different. Many will have a different number of weeks, or some will have more conservative than others, and that’s what they will be,” Trump said. 

However, Trump stopped short of providing any specifics of at what point abortion should be banned. Last week, he was pressured to give his opinion on a six-week abortion ban set to go into effect in Florida.

Trump called Florida’s ban a “terrible thing and a terrible mistake” but did not go into specifics.

“President Trump supports preserving life but has also made clear that he supports states’ rights because he supports the voters’ right to make decisions for themselves,” said Brian Hughes, senior adviser to the Trump campaign. “Where President Trump thinks voters should have the last word, Biden and many Democrats want to allow abortion up until the moment of birth and force taxpayers to pay for it.”

Trump’s position drew fire from the anti-abortion heavyweight group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America.

“We are deeply disappointed in President Trump’s position. Unborn children and their mothers deserve national protections and national advocacy from the brutality of the abortion industry. The Dobbs decision clearly allows both states and Congress to act,” SBA President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “Saying the issue is ‘back to the states’ cedes the national debate to the Democrats who are working relentlessly to enact legislation mandating abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. If successful, they will wipe out states’ rights.”

  1. TRUMP IS CORRECT THAT THE ABORTION ISSUE MUST BE AT STATE LEVEL AS IT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION AND SCOTUS WAS CORRECT IN REMOVING IT TO THE STATE LEVEL. IF PEOPLE ONLY KNEW CIVICS. HOWEVER, ABORTION IS IN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE! “It is not the mothers decision to protect or not protect her baby. The child has an inalienable right to life granted by GOD at the moment of Conception. The Declaration of Independence lists LIFE as the first inalienable right because without the right to live, all other rights are meaningless”.
    QUOTE FROM MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA ~ It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that YOU may live as YOU wish.

  2. The federal Guvmint was created by the states, to accomplish those things required by the UNITED states! It was never supposed to be a top-down, dictatorial entity. But, like everything else, the truth of our country’s founding and structure have been educated out of us!
    The Fed is a creation of the states…not the other way around.
    This issue wouldn’t rise to the level of centralized decision-making.
