Trump Claims He’ll Refuse Federal Abortion Ban If Elected President

And the pro-life crowd loves this man!  Keep in mind that he ran claiming he was the most pro-life president in history, which is the furthest thing from the truth.  In fact, it was documented that his administration gave more to Planned Parenthood annually than Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s administration did.  Now, he’s said that he will refuse to sign a federal ban on abortion if elected to the White House.

LifeSite News has the story.

(LifeSiteNews) — Former President and presumptive Republican White House nominee Donald Trump told journalists on Wednesday that he will not sign a federal abortion ban if it reaches his desk.

CNN reports that he was asked point-blank if he would sign an abortion ban that did muster enough support to clear Congress, to which he answered “no.” The stance marks a reversal from his 2016 pledge to sign the federal Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and his urging of Congress to send the same law to his desk at the 2020 March for Life.

Trump announced on Monday that “whatever” individual states “decide must be the law of the land” on abortion instead of pursuing further pro-life protections at the federal level, while reiterating his support for embryo-destructive in vitro fertilization and rape, incest, and “health” exceptions for abortion laws. Direct abortion is always gravely immoral and never needed nor ethically justified to save a mother’s life.

Um, what?  I thought the Constitution stated it was the law of the land (Article VI), and furthermore, the law of God reigns supreme over even the Constitution.  Keep in mind that those who fought against tyranny and signed their names to the Declaration of Independence affirmed that among the very first rights that God gives us is the right to life.

LifeSite goes on to demonstrate how Trump is deflecting the abortion issue, and I’ll add that it looks just like the way he diffused the truth bomb Jerome Corsi was about to unleash concerning Barack Obama’s birth certificate.  If you don’t see how Trump was used in that scenario, you’ll not see how he’s being used today.

Trump has repeatedly framed the June 2022 overturn of Roe v. Wade, brought about thanks in part to Supreme Court justices he nominated, as an “end” to the abortion battle’s national aspect.

Various defenders have interpreted his remarks as a mere tactical focus on advancing life at the state level until public opinion is more conducive to federal action.

The answer removes whatever lingering doubt remained this week for the prospects of late-term or 15-week abortion bans in a second Trump administration.

Many pro-lifers argue that preemptively rejecting any federal abortion ban will forego chances of saving whatever number of babies can be saved at a given time and helps fuel a broader shift away from the Republican Party’s longstanding pro-life platform, potentially leading to it becoming a functionally or officially pro-abortion party. 

Others note that the vast majority of abortions occur before 15 weeks anyway and fear that a more moderate ban’s passage would breed contentment with the new status quo that dilutes the urgency of working for more comprehensive bans.

Trump also stated on Wednesday that Arizona went “too far” when its highest court allowed the enforcement of a near-total abortion ban dating back to 1864 and codified in 1913, expressing confidence it will be “straightened out” back “into reason” by Arizona leaders; and predicted without disapproval that “Florida’s probably gonna change” when residents vote on a ballot initiative to create a “right” to abortion that would invalidate a six-week ban Trump has repeatedly criticized.
