Even though former President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominees were instrumental in overturning Roe V. Wade, the 2024 presidential candidate is in hot water with a pro-life organization after his recent comments about abortion.
In a statement from the Trump campaign published in the Washington Post on Thursday, April 20, campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said that Trump believes abortion should be decided at the state level.
“President Donald J. Trump believes that the Supreme Court, led by the three justices which he supported, got it right when they ruled this is an issue that should be decided at the state level,” the statement read.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, which has encouraged state-level and federal lawmakers to change abortion policies, called Trump’s comments “a morally indefensible position for a self-proclaimed pro-life presidential candidate to hold” and suggested it is incorrect to assert that the Supreme Court decision declared abortion a state issue.
