Trump’s BLUNT Advice On Abortion

Donald Trump

( – During his meeting with House Republicans, former President Donald Trump urged them to discuss abortion “correctly,” emphasizing exceptions to restrictions and reinforcing that states should make decisions on the issue.

According to several members attending the session, Trump acknowledged Democrats’ focus on abortion rights in the upcoming elections and deemed the issue “too important to ignore.”

He also argued that Democrats are the “radicals” on the issue and “support abortion so far along that nobody supports that,” calling Republicans the “party of common sense.”

A recent Gallup poll revealed that a record-high 32% of U.S. voters insist on voting only for candidates who align with their views on abortion.

Moreover, Trump’s stance aligns with traditional Republican views, particularly advocating for state-level solutions that include exceptions in cases of rape or when the woman’s life is at risk.

Simultaneously, the Supreme Court recently made a significant decision on abortion by dismissing a case concerning doctors’ legal standing in relation to the abortion pill mifepristone.

Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA), a staunch supporter of stringent abortion restrictions, interpreted Trump’s remarks as signaling that he would not pursue federal restrictions on abortion access.

Additionally, Representative Don Bacon (R-NE) noted that due to the Senate filibuster, “we’re not going to get any strong pro-life or pro-abortion policies passed,” indicating that decisions on abortion will continue to be made at the state level.

In contrast, Representative Becca Balint (D-VT) stated that leaving abortion access up to states would still put women’s lives in jeopardy.

“Up to the states?! Why don’t we ask Amanda Zurawski what she feels about that? ” Balint said, referring to a Texas woman who nearly died after being denied abortion access under the state’s strict post-Roe limits.

“The former president doesn’t care at all about the health of women,” she added.
