What will Trump do on pro-life issues?
A lot of Conservatives wonder. Having been pro-choice in the past, what will Trump do?
During his first 60 Minutes interview, Trump made it clear: He will appoint pro-life judges to the Supreme Court.
Life News reported this:
The future of the Supreme Court is probably the most important issue for pro-life voters and was prominent on their minds during this past presidential election has Trump pro-abortion Hillary Clinton, who promised to name judges who would continue another four decades of abortion.
President-elect Donald Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with “60 Minutes” that his role of appointing a Supreme Court justice is “very important” — and that he plans to appoint pro-life justices.
“I’m pro-life,” he said. “The judges will be pro-life.”
Asked specifically whether he wants the Supreme Court to repeal the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide, Trump replied that if the decision were overturned the issue of abortion would be decided by each state.
Fortune mag says a Trump administration could appoint several judges to the Supreme Court.
No one doubts a new Trump-appointed Justice will take his or her place on the court, probably in the spring of 2017. But others could soon follow. The current crowd on the court are hardly spring chickens: Ginsburg is 83-years-old, Justice Anthony Kennedy is 80 and Justice Stephen Breyer is 78.
What’s alarming for Democrats is that two of the oldest (Ginsburg and Breyer) are liberals, meaning Trump could replace them with conservatives in the event of illness, death, or retirement. The nightmare scenario for liberals, as NYU law prof Barry Friedman told the New York Times: “In the worst case, we end up with a 7-2 conservative court, and a relatively young one at that. This could be a typhoon for the Supreme Court.”
Not a bad start for a candidate that doesn’t fall into the traditional conservative definitions.
And wasn’t accepted by traditional conservatives at first.
Trump is talking like he’ll be the most pro-life President in a long time!
