Trump Confirms Abortion A State’s Decision

Former President Donald Trump announce on April 8 that decisions regarding abortion restrictions is constitutionally a matter left to states, declining to back a national-level limit.

In a video posted on Truth Social, President Trump stated: “My view is now that we have abortion where everyone wanted it from a legal standpoint, 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.”


He went on to say: “Many states will be different. Many will have a different number of weeks, or some will have more conservative than others, and that’s what they will be. At the end of the day, this is all about the will of the people.”


The former president also said he supports fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization, or IVF.

President Trump had promised to release his stance on “abortion and abortion rights” as a law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy is set to take effect in Florida, his home state. In keeping with Constitutional mandate, Florida residents will vote in November on a ballot initiative that would allow abortions through roughly 26 weeks of gestation or allow the 6 week ban to stand.


In its 2022 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, returning the ability to regulate abortions early in pregnancy to the states.


As per the Constitution, since the Supreme Courts ruling on the Dobbs decision, many Democrat-led states have passed laws protecting access to abortions while many Republican-led ones have approved legislation banning or severely limiting the procedure.
