Trump says abortion should be decided by the states, 'will of the people'
Former President Donald Trump says he'll announce a position on whether abortion should be banned, following months of not taking a stance on the combustible issue in his 2024 rematch with Biden.

Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced his position on whether abortion should be banned, following months of not taking a stance on the combustible and crucial issue in his 2024 rematch with President Biden.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee took to his social media platform on Sunday night to say that he would issue a statement on "abortion and abortion rights." In video posted Monday morning, Trump explicitly affirmed his support for in vitro fertilization (IVF) and he emphasized his support for states determining their own laws for abortion so long as there are exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother.

"The states will determine by vote, or legislation, or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land - in this case, the law of the state," Trump said. Many states will be different. Many states will have a different number of weeks…at the end of the day it is all about the will of the people."

The former president told reporters last week at a campaign stop in Michigan that he would make a statement in the coming week, after he was asked about his home state of Florida's controversial six-week abortion ban, which will soon be going into effect.

Trump reiterated that he was proud of the role he played in overturning Roe v. Wade, saying legal scholars on "both sides" had been in favor of the move.

"The Republican Party should always be on the side of the miracle of life and the side of mothers, fathers and their beautiful babies. IVF is an important part of that," Trump said.

The former president added on Sunday night that "great love and compassion must be shown when even thinking about the subject of LIFE, but at the same time we must use common sense in realizing that we have an obligation to the salvation of our Nation, which is currently in serious DECLINE, TO WIN ELECTIONS, without which we will have nothing other than failure, death, and destruction."

The blockbuster move nearly two years by the Supreme Court's conservative majority to overturn the landmark nearly half-century-old Roe v. Wade ruling, which had allowed for legalized abortions nationwide, moved the divisive issue back to the states.

And it's forced Republicans to play plenty of defense in elections across the country, as a party that's nearly entirely "pro-life" has had to deal with an electorate where a majority of Americans support at least some form of abortion access.

In the wake of the Supreme Court move, Republican-dominated states have implemented a new wave of restrictions on abortion, including Florida's six-week ban.

As Democrats target Trump and other Republicans over the divisive issue, the former president has tried to thread the needle on abortion.

He regularly takes credit on the campaign trail for appointing the Supreme Court associate who overturned Roe v. Wade and touts that he's the "most pro-life president in American history."

But he has also repeatedly criticized fellow Republicans for taking a hard-line stance on the issue, blaming candidates who did not allow for exceptions in cases of rape, incest and when the life of the pregnant person is at risk for GOP's setbacks in the 2022 midterm elections.

"A lot of politicians who are pro-life do not know how to discuss this topic and they lose their election. We had a lot of election losses because of this, because they didn't know to discuss it. They had no idea," he said last year at a leadership summit of the Concerned Women of America.

For over a year, Trump has declined to spell out when in a pregnancy he would push to ban abortions.

Trump recently suggested in a WABC radio interview that he was considering a 15-wee ban, saying "the number of weeks now, people are agreeing on 15. And I'm thinking in terms of that."

"It'll come out to something that's very reasonable. But people are really, even hard-liners are agreeing, seems to be, 15 weeks seems to be a number that people are agreeing at," he emphasized.

But he's also said multiple times that rather than implementing a federal ban, the issue should stay in the states.

"Everybody agrees — you've heard this for years — all the legal scholars on both sides agree: It's a state issue. It shouldn't be a federal issue, it's a state issue," Trump said.

And Trump has also said that if elected he would "come together with all groups" to negotiate something that would "make both sides happy."

But anything less than a total ban would likely anger anti-abortion hardliners in his own party. And any type of ban would also infuriate many in the abortion rights movement.

Polling has consistently shown that most Americans believe abortion should be legal through the initial stages of pregnancy.

And a recent Fox News poll found that in just the past year, support for a 15-week ban dropped by 12 points, with 54 percent of voters now opposed.

Even if you want to follow what Trump says, he says it is up to the "people" not the white, male, older republican lawmakers that are actually making the laws.  Bring it up to a vote in every state.

Maybe people are not one issue voters.  If the abortion issue is important enough to people they will vote the opponents of it out and replace them with people that are for it.

Many states have ways to bring issues up on the next vote.  That is fine

Even in traditionally red states. If ever there was an issue that requires federal regulation, this is it as it goes directly to personal freedom. A founding principle. 

To cite ‘states rights’ is reminiscent of the darkest period in our history and is not leadership, not courageous, and not relevant…but rather pandering, weak, and ignorant.

Remember, citing states rights can go all the way back to the civil war where some states wanted the right to own slaves.  Forced pregnancies are moving back into that direction when they force rape and incest victims to bear their assaulter's children.

Of course there are those on both sides who have an agenda to push. Bottom line? No one with any concern for the future of our country can afford to pay him any credence much less garner one’s support.

Trump has shown no respect for the Constitution or the laws except where he benefits from the same. Otherwise, the Constitution is as good as toilet paper to him.

I am not sure how you leaped from one to the next, so I added my twisted point of view:

Trump speaks in garbled word-garbage. It sounds like English and he generally starts in a manner like he is going somewhere, but often it is just meandering babble. My sole point in commenting was to poke fun at this tendency of his.

So you are fine with America being run by a dictator for even 1 single day?  No "American" should allow that for 1 second, let alone 1 day.

During that 1 day, a dictator could rescind the Constitution, remember most dictators do not consider themselves dictators, they like to call themselves by other titles.  

Kim Jong Un is not a dictator, he is simply their Supreme Leader. Putin (whom Trump adores and worships) is "President" of Russia.  See, no dictators.

And those EO's must align with the Constitution and within a limited area.  EO's are not able to be used anywhere desired.   Politics 101.

Executive orders are formal instructions from the President of the United States to federal officials or agencies. They are used to direct the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government and have the effect of law.

If the laws controlling reproductive rights are allowed to be different from state to state then so too could be adoptions and marriage rights. This means that a family could be made illegal by a job transfer or soldiers being moved state to state...

The Tenth Amendment - Reserving Power for the States

By   FindLaw Staff   | Legally reviewed by   Laura Temme, Esq.   | Last reviewed July 27, 2022

Passed by Congress in 1789 and ratified in 1791, the Tenth Amendment is the last in the group of Constitutional Amendments known as the Bill of Rights. Unlike several of the other early amendments, it is quite brief – only one sentence.

But that one sentence grants state governments all powers not specifically delegated to the federal government by the Constitution. However, as broad a grant as this seems, interpretation by the Supreme Court has placed some limits on state power.

What It Says

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Congress is the representative body for all the states.

We, some, all of us can remember the 'hodge-podge' of state rulings which were confusing, unworkable, and resulted in women harming, maiming (could not have a child after blotched procedures performed by 'crooked' and underperforming physicians (and abortion scammers), and killing themselves so as not to give birth out of illness, error in timing in life, poverty, or career.

It takes a girl or woman to explain the harm done individually to her when she has the power of the state mandating that sexual intercourse that results in an unwanted pregnancy shall go forward against all that she see as obstacles confronting her doing so.

This is the really 'funky' part (if you will allow it to be stated so) about this state-control over abortions: Nobody who is not disposed to getting an abortion in a select state is even going to notice (be impacted by) a change in the law. As they simply were not interested in the first place. There is no major upheaval for them. And, anyone who is disposed to having an abortion will have to "simply" (though not as simple as for the others-they are impacted) going to have to pack up and move or at the least, go outside the state to get an abortion accomplished.

Except for the human life being taken. 

That's why this is such a dumb argument. If you are actually trying to persuade someone to support abortion, you have to engage on their terms. People who oppose abortion think the human life inside the mother has value before it's born, or leaves the hospital,or thinks (whatever developmental point  you choose where it can no longer be killed). So when your arguement ignores that, it's pointless. Slave owners denied the humanity of their slaves, thus they used the same sort of argument since the slave wasn't harmed (in their mind) either.

human life that has not yet begun in this world

It's a human life. You don't recognize it as one. Others do. Just like slavery.  The slave owner doesn't recognize that the slave is a full human with rights. You say the same of a viable human ready to be born. 

If you were an abolitionist in 1855 and a slave owner said to you "if you don't like slavery, don't own one,"  would you find that a compelling argument? Or would you find it almost insultingly stupid because it  fundamentally ignores your objection to slavery?  

y, that dispenses with your slavery and drunk driving arguments.

You did not provide a link (but I read the VA law clause anyway), and that is good for Virginia - assuming a legal definition of spouse or father of the child is legally declared (the mother is by definition decided at birth). It does not mention what is charged when such determination of spouse or father is not readily known.

And while lending credence to Virginia's protection for the family, it does not address the country as a whole (the way one would expect pro-lifers to fight to do)!

Additionally, I don't see a provision in the VA law advocating for parents not to put their children 'out' of the house, simply because of whom individually they are 'becoming.'

It's a human life in the making, it is pro-lifers expressed intentions to extend to an embryo all the functioning and administrating privileges, liberties, and "prosperousness" of a human living in our world—except, a fetus does not living in our world. Moreover, once a human life is registered as viable, then it is beset by another set of rules which detail those privileges, liberties, and prospering it will not be fully allowed to have function and administered to it, respectively.

As I stated prior, abortion is an imperfect solution which occurs before coming into our world, but equally imperfect is abandonment, neglect, violence towards ones offspring, and disowning of an offspring and these are issues which occur in our world and on average can even span a lifetime). 

Slavery is not a part of this discussion and it reeks of desperation that you compelling demand that it do stick to the walls of this discussion.

In Conclusion:

Today's announcement by Donald Trump got immediate reactions from both sides of the issue. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris quickly jumped on it, to portray it as a disingenuous stance. Then the prolife movement's leading spokesman Mike Pence said it was a “slap in the face” to “millions of pro-life Americans” who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020. That was followed by the leading pro-life advocacy organization Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America saying that the organization was “deeply disappointed.”

Blame it on the Republicans who should have known that the media would struggle to take control of the messaging and they did. I'm sorry for the pro-lifers, Donald Trump had to move the GOP away from advocating for life. I want all of you to do some soul searching and you'll see that Trump was right. Besides, when we get to November, who else are you going to vote for?

No. Trump has said "something". He did not answer the question or give good reasons for his non-answer. If he were President again and the legislature sent him a bill codifying the status of abortion, would he sign it or would he not?

DNA Tests Are Uncovering the True Prevalence of Incest (msn.com)

In 1975, around the time of Steve’s birth, a psychiatric textbook put the frequency of incest at one in a million.

But this number is almost certainly a dramatic underestimate. The stigma around openly discussing incest, which often involves child sexual abuse, has long made the subject difficult to study. In the 1980s,   feminist scholars argued , based on the testimonies of victims, that incest was far more common than recognized, and in recent years, DNA has offered a new kind of biological proof. Widespread genetic testing is uncovering case after secret case of children born to close biological relatives—providing an unprecedented accounting of incest in modern society.

How many late term abortions are there?  Miniscule numbers.

What are the reasons for late term abortions?  Because the fetus is dead or dying usually and to save the life of the woman.

As far as the "sanctity of life"?  The woman's life should ALWAYS matter more than the possible life in her body.  She is the living human being who is risking her life, her emotional, physical, mental and financial well-being in carrying a pregnancy to term.

The forced birthers have absolutely no risk in a female's pregnancy and should NEVER have a vote on her life decisions - none, nada, zip.

Most reasonable people can accept restrictions with reasonable exceptions such danger to the mothers health.

And this must include mental health.  In the US at least one out of every four females have been molested/raped before reaching adulthood (age 25).  Many of them will manage to have some kind of sexual relationship during their lifetime that might result in pregnancy.  Maybe, the majority desire being a mother, but for the minority that can't cope with parenting a child, there must never be restrictions that force her to endure a pregnancy that might result in the death of whatever mental health she still possesses to cope with life.  Females are people with unique personalities, experiences, biology, etc.  Females should never be considered livestock to be bred.

There are far too many considerations of why there should be very few limitations on abortion because the woman's life is at stake.  We can't walk in another person's shoes and it really is a blessing. 

Hard to understand unrestricted abortion with no limitations.

Whether a person can "understand" something does not mean that they should have the power to play dictator in another person's life, does it?

Again, I will re-state, the number of late term abortions are miniscule and usually because the fetus is dead or dying.  I had the trauma of having some area religious zealot send me an email with graphic pictures and propaganda about this issue over a decade ago.  We used to do business with him.  After receiving that email, we found another supplier (which might have been just as guilty as spreading lies but wasn't stupid enough to tell me).

It is psychological abuse telling a woman that she is too stupid to make her own decisions.

It is psychological abuse telling a woman that she is being a sinful, immoral creature if she values her own mental and physical well-being if she chooses to save her own life over that of a fetus.

No woman should ever have to endure having men with those kind of attitudes in their life period.  This is no different than the attitude of  the Ayatollah in Iran that is being labeled an abhorrent being that must be eliminated for the good of the world.  There is no reason to fight that attitude in the Middle East if it is going to be legal in the US.

When during pregnancy do most abortions occur?

The vast majority of abortions occur during the first trimester of a pregnancy. In 2021, 93% of abortions occurred during the first trimester – that is, at or before 13 weeks of gestation,  according to the CDC . An additional 6% occurred between 14 and 20 weeks of pregnancy, and about 1% were performed at 21 weeks or more of gestation.

So, the health issue can be anything and there is no restriction in the final trimester.

Now let us discuss such cases.

In 1992, Haskell, who claimed to have performed over 1,000 partial-birth abortions, detailed his procedure in a paper. To give readers a realistic view of this gruesome procedure, a 1996 congressional record factsheet entitled “ A Closer Look at Partial-Birth Abortions ” reprinted his directions.

According to Haskell:

With a lower [fetal] extremity in the vagina, the surgeon uses his fingers to deliver the opposite lower extremity, then the torso, the shoulders and upper extremities. The skull lodges at the internal cervical os [the   opening to the uterus]. Usually there is not enough dilation for it to pass through. The fetus is oriented dorsum or spine up. At this point, the right-handed surgeon slides the fingers of the left hand along the back of the fetus and hooks the shoulders of the fetus with the index and ring fingers (palm down). [T]he surgeon takes a pair of blunt curved Metzenbaum scissors in the right hand. He carefully advances the tip, curved down, along the spine and under his middle finger until he feels it contact the base of the skull under the tip of his middle finger. [T]he surgeon then forces the scissors into the base of the skull or into the foramen magnum. Having safely entered the skull, he spreads the scissors to enlarge the opening. The surgeon removes the scissors and introduces a suction catheter into this hole and evacuates the skull contents.

Yep. I'm with the majority of the country on third trimester abortions. Unless there is a REAL reason for it such as the life of the mother, it should not take place at that stage.

I don't understand how something created by two people is controlled by one, but I do know that you do not dictate rights to everyone. People vote on it. We have abortion laws throughout the country with everything from Arizona's very restrictive law all to the six states and Washington, D.C., which do not impose any term restrictions at all.  That is the home of the brave and the land of the free.

I read it and I still don't get why certain women are so over the top on this subject.

How about a law that requires a detailed health evaluation for anyone, of any age or gender, trying to get a drivers license?

We can do this all day.   

None of which are remotely the same thing.

Again, if your position is that they don’t happen, a law forbidding them should be no problem for you.

Such a stupid way of thinking.  A true “will of the people” would be women deciding if they should terminate or not terminate their pregnancy.  Nobody is forcing women to have an abortion, just like nobody should force women to not have an abortion.
