Abortion has been and remains to be a polarizing issue in this country — but Trump believes he may have a compromise both Republicans and Democrats can get behind.
“There is a solution,” the president said. “I think I have that solution, and nobody else does. We are going to be working on that.”
There is a firm line in the sand between conservatives and liberals when it comes to abortion.
Conservatives believe every life is worth saving, even the life of an unborn fetus — regardless of the circumstances.
Liberals, however, fight tooth and nail for the right to kill unborn children under any circumstance.
They say no court, no man, no judge, nobody — period — should be able to tell a woman what she can or cannot do with her body.
This issue is such a hot potato, in fact, that it was central to the fight against Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation process.
There are even some conspiracy theorists that believe the allegations made against him were backed by pro-abortion groups and big money liberals.
The theory goes that these people came out against Kavanaugh because they believe he will try to overturn Roe v. Wade, even though Kavanaugh repeatedly said he would respect precedent and leave it be.
Trump’s Record on Abortion
Trump has been openly pro-life for years.
According to Bob Woodward’s book Fear, Trump proclaimed he was pro-life in 2010, and always has been while discussing a potential run for president.
Anti-abortion groups have even applauded Trump for his efforts against legalized abortion, including asking Congress to cut funding for abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood.
Trump has also called for the suspension of funding from worldwide organizations if they support abortion.
It will be very interesting to see how Trump balances the polarizing views of conservatives and liberals to come up with a compromise on this one.
