Trump Makes 1 Surprise Announcement


When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016, he vowed to appoint conservative justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. He made good on that promise. And, in 2022, the conservative Supreme Court he helped create did just that.

Democrats have been reeling ever since the SCOTUS ending over 50 years of federally-protected abortions.

But Trump has been critical of some red states that have passed strong abortion restrictions. Many have feared Trump’s stance on the issue has changed since his first term. Finally, after much waiting, the former president has revealed his official 2024 abortion platform.

From The Post Millennial:
Trump backed IVF, a procedure which has faced legal challenges in Alabama, and offered the Reagan exceptions to abortion, namely in cases of rape, incest, or where the life of the mother is at stake. Trump offered support for American families and family creation, and said the GOP would always support families…

Trump gave support for IVF treatment, which helps families dealing with infertility to have children. The procedure has become controversial as doctors, hospitals, and couples face the growing problem of what to do with leftover embryos that are not implanted.

In a video posted to his social network, Donald Trump laid out his plans for abortion policy, should he win a second term as president. The Republican touted his success at helping overturn Roe v. Wade.

He went on to promise to uphold Reagan-era loopholes for abortion. Those exceptions include allowing abortion in the case of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.

But Trump also touted his support for IVF, a treatment that has become unpopular among pro-life conservatives. Alabama recently passed a law banning the procedure. Some pro-life Americans believe IVF is unethical, as it can lead to fertilized embryos that are not implanted in a woman’s womb.

Trump claimed he was supporting the rights of all American families. But it remains to be seen if his possibly liberal-leaning policies will go over well with some Republican voters.

Trump is likely trying to win over moderate and even some liberal independent voters with his new stance. He cannot be a hard-liner when it comes to abortion anymore, given the fact Biden will be using the issue to win votes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Donald Trump revealed his 2024 abortion policy.
  • Trump will support abortion under certain circumstances.
  • He also strongly backed IVF, a procedure that raises ethical questions for many Americans.
