Pro-Life Group Responds to Trump

( – In one of the seemingly few developments going negatively in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the former president has caused a leading pro-life advocacy organization to be “deeply disappointed” when he recently declared that abortion policy was a state matter not to be decided on the federal level.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, a prominent organization advocating against abortion, has made clear its preference for nationwide legislation on the matter, National Review reports.

“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,” stated Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the organization.

Dannenfelser critiqued Trump for not supporting federal restrictions on abortion. She suggested this inaction benefits Democrats who are actively pursuing legislation to legalize abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy.

“If successful, they will wipe out states’ rights,” she warned.

Trump shared his position through a video on Truth Social, highlighting his influence in establishing a Supreme Court majority that overturned 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. In this case, the law of the state,” the former president stated.

In the Republican presidential primaries, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America urged candidates to support a federal ban on abortions after 15 weeks, as proposed by Senator Lindsey Graham.

However, Trump did not endorse this federal limit, although he continued to support in vitro fertilization, especially following an Alabama Supreme Court decision that recognized frozen embryos as children, thereby safeguarding IVF treatments under new laws.

“The Republican Party should always be on the side of the miracle of life and the side of mothers, fathers and their beautiful babies. IVF is an important part of that,” Trump affirmed.

Following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, surveys compiled by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America indicate that a significant majority of Americans favor imposing considerable restrictions on abortion.

CatholicVote, a major Catholic advocacy group, stated that leaving abortion policies solely to the states is insufficient but remained hopeful regarding Trump’s dedication to the issue.

“While federal legislation on abortion policy is challenging at present, we are confident that a Trump administration will be staffed with pro-life personnel committed to pro-life policies, including conscience rights, limits on taxpayer funding of abortion, and protections for pro-life states,” said Brian Burch, the president of CatholicVote.
