(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Former President Donald Trump claimed a central role in the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade and the restoration of abortion bans as he spoke before a Faith and Freedom Conference in DC.
Trump’s speech came on the first anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s ruling in “Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization,” which ended the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and the claims that abortion is a constitutional right.
“I got it done, and nobody thought it was even a possibility,” Trump told the Road to Majority conference in the nation’s capital organized by the Faith & Freedom Coalition, a conservative advocacy group.
“They’d been fighting — good people, strong people, smart people — had been fighting for 50 years, and it never even came close to getting done. I don’t believe they’ve ever even taken a vote. They never even came close. It was something that wasn’t going to happen. I got it done,” the former president added.
During his White House term from 2017-2021, Trump appointed three conservative justices to the Supreme Court for a 6-3 conservative majority.
“A woman stood up and said, ‘This guy [Trump] ended Roe v. Wade. How the hell can you go against him?’ And I sort of said that myself, actually. But I’m proud to be the most pro-life president in American history,” said the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
The report notes that Trump’s 90-minute speech, which closed the three-day conference, was frequently interrupted by chants of “USA” and “We love Trump!”
“No president has ever fought for Christians as hard as I have, and I will keep on fighting, and I’ll fight hard until I’m back behind that desk at the Oval Office, the Resolute Desk,” he said.
The annual event also featured many of Trump’s rivals for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, such as Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence.
In his speech, Pence urged all 2024 GOP hopefuls to support a minimum 15-week federal abortion ban – as Trump has remained noncommittal about federal abortion restrictions.
DeSantis also didn’t say where he stood on a federal ban, but he defended his state law prohibiting abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy.
