Trump was NEVER "pro-life!"

 Donald Trump 2016:


February 16: The New York Times reported that Donald Trump—who stacked the U.S. Supreme Court with the express purpose of ending Roe v. Wade— privately confirmed his support for a national abortion ban. 

March 1: Politico reported that Donald Trump confirmed what we all knew to be true: if given the opportunity, he would sign a national abortion ban. 

March 18: In an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump again bragged about overturning Roe v. Wade and reaffirmed his support for a national abortion ban if reelected to the presidency. 

 "On Wednesday, Trump reversed his previous position supporting a 20-week ban on abortion; he announced that he would not support a national abortion ban if he wins the presidency, and he said the policy should instead be left up to the states. This is a traditional pro-life position, but only if you also urge states to use their autonomy to pass pro-life bills. 

Instead, Trump’s advice to voters was to “follow your heart” and “do what’s right for your family, and do what’s right for yourself.” It’s “all about the will of the people,” he said. 

This is the most pro-choice position a Republican presidential candidate has taken since at least Gerald Ford." 


 "It’s no wonder, then, that the pro-life cause is in a state of emergency so soon after its greatest legal triumph, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. It has lost every referendum since the Supreme Court decided Dobbs, including ballot measures in red states like Kentucky, Kansas, Montana and Ohio. 

Early polling indicates that Florida’s proposed pro-choice referendum may well cross the 60 percent threshold needed to pass and overturn the state’s six-week abortion ban. In fact, a majority of Republican voters appear to support the referendum. 

Even more ominously from a pro-life perspective, the abortion rate rose under Trump, and the total number of abortions has actually increased since the Dobbs decision.


Donald Trump was never "pro-life." Donald Trump is "pro-Trump and for ANYTHING and any abortion position that will get him elected. 

The pro-life movement showed its true colors when it enthusiastically backed a serial adulterer, rapist, racist, sexist, misogynistic man who bragged about grabbing women’s genitals. No value placed on women in that setting. But they are ok with that. 

The pro-lifers have been had by America's greatest liar and conman.

The transactional man... striving again to be the Transactional Resident of the WH.

A deeply disturbed narcissistic human form.

And this is what the republican chamber of niwits and horrors want to be president again.
