Skip to comments.Donald Trump noticeably absent from GOP candidates standing for life on anniversary of Roe
Posted on 01/24/2016 2:09:17 AM PST by Sun
On the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, many GOP presidential contenders were not silent. While Democrats Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton continue to defend the horrors of abortion, Republicans Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson took to social media. Recognizing the tragedy of over 58 million lives lost, these candidates explained why they stand for life.
Donald Trump, however, has been silent on abortion, the March for Life, and Roe v. Wade all day. He is the only GOP front runner to avoid making a statement. Issues concerning Trumpâs pro-abortion past continue to rise â including his statement that his sister would be âone of the bestâ justices for the U.S. Supreme Court, despite her ruling in favor of partial-birth abortion as a circuit judge.
Trumpâs lack of a statement on the anniversary of Roe further illustrate the muddle he is in with pro-lifers and conservatives. His statements are viewed by some as very concerning, including his recent observation that â[W]e have to look at the positives, also, for Planned Parenthood.â

He was pro-choice until a few months ago, wasn’t he?
News you may have missed.
Regarding a family he knows he said that if the kid had turned out to a “loser” he probably wouldn’t have changed his mind on being pro-abortion. He said he changed his mind because the kid turned out to be a “superstar”.
Well maybe he knows a more recent family and the kid turned out to be a “loser” so he switched back...
With deep convictions like that who knows...
More establishment lies.
Donald Trump op-ed: My vision for a Culture of Life
Trump is the only true conservative in the race.
News you may have missed.
But let me direct you to direct words from Trump himself on the matter.
I’ll tell people what your link is, and submit that anyone who hasn’t done so should read it. Trump gave a passionate support of life and with it a condemnation of our culture of death.
“He was pro-choice until a few months ago, wasnât he?”
Trump was a lot of things only months ago, but flipped JUST BEFORE he declared he was running for president.
Can we trust him, or is he just telling us what we want to hear?
Did he really say that?
Yikes, it’s worse than - I - even thought.
Are you saying those weren’t his words on my link? To my knowledge it hasn’t been debunked.
Check the source. HARDLY an establishment website.
I heard Donald Trump say on Saturday’s nightly news that his poll numbers would be good even if he killed someone.
Sadly, he’s right. I’m seeing the same kind of admiration for him as I saw for Obama.
The link to the actual quote/article is on post #6.
Yes, it is disturbing. And it is recent.
In case you missed this in the OP:
“Trump’s lack of a statement on the anniversary of Roe further illustrate the muddle he is in with pro-lifers and conservatives. His statements are viewed by some as very concerning, including his recent observation that “[W]e have to look at the positives, also, for Planned Parenthood. ..”
The nicest thing I can say is that Donald Trump doesn’t get it.
Let me be clear - I am pro-life.
Is making the decision on whether kids live or die based on whether they turn out to be “superstars” or “losers” really that much of an epiphany. It sounds more like flirting with eugenics. You really don’t find that disturbing?
You're going to believe what you want to anyway. My previous statement stands. Saul was converted to Paul, and that doesn't erase anything Saul did.
