(FeaturedNews.com) – On Thursday, former President Donald Trump revealed that he would consider signing a 15-week abortion ban if elected in 2024.
As he pointed out, there are currently “different options available” as abortion rights and access are currently handled by the states. He then proceeded to tout his efforts which led to Roe v. Wade being overturned, pointing out that this was something they had been trying to get done in close to five decades. He appointed more than 300 federal judges and three justices who were important in this process.
A reporter proceeded to ask him if he would consider signing the 15-week abortion ban if it successfully passed through Congress. Trump then stated that he thought that they would “get it done on some level” on the national level, but that it might require different levels in order for them to be completely successful. He added that this is an issue that he knows “better than most,” and that they were going to take care of it.
Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, a court decision that had previously protected abortion rights across the country. One state adopted an abortion ban, while two attempted to pass one, but did not garner enough support. Three states also moved forward with legislation that would help them protect abortion access.
Since last year, more than 19 states have adopted laws or executive orders that protect access to abortion for out-of-state patients, medical providers, and other helpers located in states with abortion bans.
