DeSantis cautions individuals who support the pro-life movement that Trump may betray their cause regarding abortion.

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida cautioned supporters of the pro-life movement that Donald Trump might betray their cause, following the former president’s plea for finding a middle ground on abortion and his criticism of Florida’s heartbeat law as a regrettable error.

“I cannot reword”

Mr. Trump has been hailed on the right as the most pro-life president in modern U.S. history, which is why abortion foes were taken aback by his recent comments on elective pregnancy termination.
On Sunday, Mr. Trump expressed his desire to find a satisfactory number regarding gestational limits on elective abortion that would please people. However, he criticized Mr. DeSantis for signing the heartbeat law, considering it a significant error.
“I believe that his actions were both terrible and a grave error,” stated Mr. Trump during his appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “However, we will determine a specific figure. Nevertheless, the Democrats will not be permitted to support abortion after six, seven, or eight months.”
Nearly half the states have enacted gestational limits on abortion such as heartbeat bills, which prohibit most abortions after fetal cardiac activity can be detected, or six to eight weeks’ gestation.

Lila Rose, the President of Live Action, firmly stated that “Trump should not be chosen as the GOP nominee.”
“I cannot reword”
Brian Burch, the President of CatholicVote, expressed concerns among Catholics about President Trump’s recent comments, questioning his dedication to leading on this issue as he did in his first term.
Mr. Burch stated that pro-life Catholics played a crucial role in securing his victory in the 2016 presidential election, as well as achieving a significant number of votes in 2020. He acknowledges that he cannot anticipate winning again without the support of these loyal voters.
“I cannot reword”

Mr. Trump expressed his disapproval of the way Republicans communicate their stance on abortion, stating that they will not be successful in areas that are not predominantly conservative unless they come to a consensus on gestational limits.

In a June survey conducted by the Associated Press-NORC, it was discovered that 73% of respondents agreed with the idea of permitting abortion within the initial six weeks of pregnancy. However, only 50% expressed support for the procedure up to 15 weeks, and merely 27% favored allowing abortion until the 24th week of gestation.
Most Democratic lawmakers have been hesitant to talk about the specific time limits for abortions, but according to Mr. Trump, a majority of Democratic voters are against late-term abortions. He believes that Republicans will be successful in addressing this issue by determining the appropriate number of weeks for gestational limits.
“I cannot reword.”
Mr. Trump seemed open to the concept of a 15-week gestational restriction, but expressed that it may be more appropriate to address it at the state level due to legal considerations.
The issue at hand is that nearly all conservative states have enacted laws that prohibit the majority of abortions prior to 15 weeks, and in certain instances, even from the point of fertilization. Prominent pro-life organizations have advocated for a federal law that sets a 15-week threshold as the minimum requirement nationwide, without intending to supersede state regulations.
“National Review posed a question in their Sunday editorial, wondering how Trump would reconcile his condemnation of pro-life laws in Florida, Ohio, Georgia, and Iowa. Would he support a law that mandates these states to permit abortions after six weeks?”
“I cannot reword.”
“He is their opponent,” she stated, referring to Trump and DeSantis. She added that Trump is expressing disapproval towards a law and legislator who took action in accordance with the people’s desires, which were made possible by the Dobbs Decision. She suggested that both Trump and DeSantis should concentrate on outlining their specific pro-life strategies for the future and highlight the differences between their approaches and Biden’s.
Mr. Trump expressed his intention to engage in discussions with both parties and find a resolution, resulting in peace on the matter after 52 years. However, supporters of the pro-life movement interpreted this statement as a potential betrayal.
“I cannot reword”
In 2022, all the pro-life governors who bravely approved heartbeat protections were re-elected, according to Jeanne Mancini, the president of the March for Life.
“I cannot reword”
Matt Walsh, a conservative podcaster, criticized Mr. Trump’s response as both morally objectionable and politically unwise.

Mr. Trump also said he favors exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother. Every state allows abortion to save the life of the mother.
