Anti-abortion groups are responding angrily to former President Donald Trump's refusal to support national abortion limits and his description of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' signing of a six-week ban on the practice as a "terrible mistake."
Trump consistently avoided answering whether he would back a government ban on abortion.
Although he stated that "from a legal standpoint, I Think It's Probably Better," he stated that he could "live with" the process being outlawed by either specific states or on a national basis by federal legislation.
Trump stated, "I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake," about DeSantis' bill, which prohibits abortions before many women know they are pregnant.
The former president has so far dominated the 2024 race while occasionally disdaining the anti-abortion organizations that often have a significant impact on Republican primaries.
However, Trump's public criticism of DeSantis, whom he has long viewed as his primary challenger, may provide the Florida governor with fresh material as he attempts to gain traction in his campaign and maintain his second-place position.
DeSantis referred to the Florida law as "noble and just," he expressed his pride in signing it.
"I don't know how you can even claim that you're somehow pro-life if you're criticizing states for enacting pro-life protections for babies," DeSantis said.
Additionally, he attacked Trump's claim that he would compromise on the issue of abortion legislation and said, "I think all pro-lifers should know that he's preparing to sell you out."
The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade left it up to the states to decide whether and how to restrict abortion.
As a result, there are now disparate sets of laws across the nation, with most Republican-led states enacting new restrictions and Democratic-led states implementing protections.
Do you believe Trump's stance on abortion and his criticism of DeSantis will impact his support among pro-life voters in the upcoming election?
