In June 2022, three newly named Supreme Court justices tipped the scales in favor of life, ending the long-standing, controversial Roe v. Wade decision and its reaffirmation in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
With the rejection of Roe v. Wade, government support for abortion ended, meeting the prayers of millions of conservatives, religious people, and passionate pro-life campaigners across the country. The end of Roe v. Wade was nothing short of a miracle for people who support life, and it should never be forgotten that it was a win for life.
Now, the abortion debate has been left up to the states, which gives people who are against abortion and Republicans a strong tool for making life-saving laws.
It is true that President Donald Trump chose three right Supreme Court judges while he was in office. This opened the door for Roe v. Wade to be overturned. It is also true that President Trump is the only president who has ever been in office to go to the March for Life gathering in Washington, D.C.
President Trump did a lot more for the pro-life cause in his first term than many so-called conservative presidents did in decades. No one can argue with this. Even though he was able to bring together hard-left pro-choice fans and pro-life supporters, cancel culture is coming for Trump again, but the reasons against him aren’t working.
Trump knows how to win on this subject.
Over the weekend, President Trump went on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he talked about Joe Biden, policy, and his plans to run for president again in 2024. When asked if he would sign a government ban on abortions after 15 weeks, Trump said that if he were president again, he would sit down with “both sides” and work out a deal that would bring “peace on that issue for the first time in 52 years.”
He also said that Gov. DeSantis’s (R-Fla.) choice to sign a law that bans abortions after six weeks was a “terrible mistake” from a political point of view on a national scale.
People on the right and on social media who didn’t like Trump’s words were quick to say that he was supporting killing kids while they were still in the womb.
But to say that Trump supports abortion is not only dishonest, it’s also not true at all. It also ignores on purpose the political background of his words, which he has always made clear. Politico says that Trump has made it clear that he is “pro-life” except when it comes to rape, incest, and the life of the mother. Some people who support life may not agree with his rule of three cases, but he hasn’t changed his mind since 2016.
The president has also spoken out against “abortion-on-demand” and abortions done late in a pregnancy.
This summer, he spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” meeting in Washington, D.C., where he said he was still committed to saving kids in the womb.
I will continue to fight against the demented late-term abortionists in the Democrat Party who believe in unlimited abortion-on-demand and even executing babies after BIRTH,” he said.
Over the weekend, the president gave the main speech at the CWALAC’s Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. He talked about how abortion is a political fight in the U.S. today. He said, “We can win elections on this subject, but it’s very sensitive, and making sure people understand it is a very important thing. You must be able to talk about it and explain it well. A lot of pro-life leaders don’t know how to talk about this.”
He is correct. A Gallup study from 2023 found that 51% of Americans think abortion should be allowed “only in certain situations,” while only 13% think it should be banned in all situations.
Whether you like it or not, abortion is a very divisive issue in the United States. If conservatives don’t figure out how to deal on this issue, Republicans will not only lose the White House in 2024, but they will also lose every election after that. And in the face of a tyrannical and overreaching Biden administration, it is impossible that conservatives would let Democrats win on the issue of abortion just because they don’t want to look at the political scene in the modern day.
One battle at a time wins the war
Pro-life supporters who are very strict want abortion to be banned in all 50 states. This is a good goal for people who care about the lives of babies in the womb.
On the other hand, people who support abortion rights want the federal government to protect abortions again across the country. Only 13% of Americans want abortion to be illegal, so there is no political way to the White House right now that doesn’t involve some kind of agreement on abortion. This is sad, but it’s the truth. Trump seems to be the only one who gets this.
The populist news site Election Wizard put it this way: “Trump, who is the most pro-life president, is trying to keep pro-lifers from stealing loss from the mouth of success. Getting rid of abortion by 2024 is a smart move. Since Dobbs, the Red states of KS, KY, MT, and OH have put abortion bans on the ticket. They all failed.”
This is a good point, and it reminds me of what Trump said in his “Meet the Press” interview when he said he would “bring peace on that issue” for the first time in decades. Based on Trump’s history of making amazing peace deals around the world while he was president, there is no question that he has the skill and experience to arrange a government abortion ban that would save the lives of millions of babies.
The option to choosing a great broker like Trump, who has skillfully won over most of the nationalist voters in the country, is to let Democrats win over Independent voters, who currently support Trump, and give Joe Biden the win. If this happens, the United States as we know it will become even more dictatorial, and no one in the country will be able to continue working to save unborn kids.
In modern America, the abortion problem needs to be solved one fight at a time, not one war at a time. Conservatives would do well to follow Trump’s plan here if they want to keep the country from being destroyed ideologically and politically by an ever-growing government machine.
