Trump breaks silence on abortion ban, says it should be left to states


Share post:


NEW YORK, April 8: Former President Donald Trump says he believes abortion should be left to the states in a video released on Monday outlining his position after months of mixed messages and speculation.
“Many people have asked me what my position is on abortion and abortion rights,” Trump said in the video posted on his Truth Social site.
“My view is now that we have abortion where everybody 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 declined to lay out a timeline for when he believes abortion should be banned. He went on to describe the current legal landscape, in which different states have different restrictions following the US Supreme Court decision ending Roe v. Wade.
“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 it’s all about will of the people,” he said.
Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, had written on his social media site Sunday night that he planned to issue a statement on “abortion and abortion rights” after he sidestepped questions about when in a pregnancy he believes the line should be drawn. (PTI)
