Key pro-life leaders emerged from a meeting with former president Donald Trump praising him for his anti-abortion stance weeks after he was sharply criticized for saying that abortion should be decided at the state level.
At Monday’s meeting with Trump were Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America (SBA) president Marjorie Dannenfelser, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, and South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham.
Trump on April 20 sparked outrage from key pro-life leaders including Dannenfelser and Live Action president Lila Rose, when his campaign spokesman said abortion should be settled by the states.
Dannenfelser released a statement Monday night calling the meeting “terrific” and praising Trump’s pro-life record, saying “his presidency was the most consequential in American history for the pro-life cause.”
