Pro-Life Group to Trump: Do as We Say or Else!

Former President Donald Trump

( – Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America has warned former President Donald Trump and other potential 2024 presidential candidates that they will lose the influential anti-abortion group’s support if they do not support a strict national anti-abortion policy.

The group’s president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said, “We will oppose any presidential candidate who refuses to embrace at least a 15-week national standard to stop painful late-term abortions while allowing states to enact additional protections.”

Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung told The Washington Post, “President Donald J. Trump believes that the Supreme Court, led by the three Justices he supported, made the correct decision when they ruled this issue should be determined at the state level. Republicans have been attempting to achieve this for 50 years, but couldn’t. President Trump, regarded as the most pro-life president in history, accomplished it. He will continue these policies if reelected to the White House. Like President Reagan before him, President Trump supports exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother.”

However, Dannenfelser is pushing back, as reported by USA Today.

She said, “President Trump’s claim that the Supreme Court returned the issue of abortion exclusively to the states is a completely inaccurate interpretation of the Dobbs decision and is a morally indefensible stance for a self-proclaimed pro-life presidential candidate to hold. Life is a matter of human rights, not states’ rights. Maintaining the position that it is solely up to the states is an abdication of responsibility by anyone elected to federal office, especially for the president, who has a duty to form national consensus and progress on the most severe human rights violation of our time.”

In response, Cheung told NBC News, “Our focus should be on saving lives and avoiding the radical left’s traps, not on dividing the pro-life community. Although there is still much work to be done to defend the cause of life, President Trump believes that it is at the state level where the most significant advances can now occur to protect the unborn.”
