Major Anti-Abortion Organization Calls Trump’s Position ‘Deeply Disappointing’

by State Brief

Major anti-abortion organization Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America has responded to former President Donald Trump’s abortion policies, calling them “deeply disappointing.”

Trump published a 4.5-minute-long video about where he stands on abortion to Truth Social on Monday.

The Republican presidential nominee said the issue should be left to the states to decide.

“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,” Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement.

“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,” Dannenfelser continued.

Though disappointed, Dannenfelser said her organization will “work tirelessly to defeat President Biden and extreme congressional Democrats.”

Trump’s full statement was as follows:

Many people have asked me what my position is on abortion and abortion rights, especially since I was proudly the person responsible for the ending of something that all legal scholars both sides wanted and in fact demanded be ended. Row v Wade. They wanted it ended.

It must be remembered that the Democrats are the radical ones are in this position because they support abortion up to and even beyond the ninth month. The concept of having an abortion in the later months, and even execution after birth.

And that’s exactly what it is. The baby is born. The baby is executed after birth is unacceptable, and almost everyone agrees with that.

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.

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 at the end of the day. This is all about the will of the people. You must follow your heart or in many cases, your religion or your faith. Do what’s right for your family and do what’s right for yourself. Do what’s right for your children. Do what’s right for our country, and vote. So important to vote.

At the end of the day, it’s all about will of the people. That’s where we are right now. And that’s what we want, the will of the people. I want to thank the six justices Chief Justice John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch. Incredible people for having the courage to allow this long term, hard fought battle to finally end this 50 year battle over Roe v Wade, took it out of the federal hands and brought it into the hearts, minds and vote of the people in each state. It was really something.

Now it’s up to the states to do the right thing. Like Ronald Reagan, I am strongly in favor of exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. You must follow your heart of this issue, but remember, you must also win elections to restore our culture and in fact, to save our country, which is currently, and very sadly, a nation in decline.
