Tonight in response to Donald Trump’s latest comments on abortion, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser reacted saying:
“It seems each pronouncement Mr. Trump makes that comes from his gut must be corrected by someone 15 minutes later.
“Last summer, Mr. Trump said he supported our top federal legislative priority. He said: ‘I support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and urge Congress to pass this bill. A ban on elective abortions after 20 weeks will protect unborn children. We should not be one of seven countries that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks. It goes against our core values.’
“Today he said ‘the laws are set. And I think we have to leave it that way.’
“He has completely contradicted himself. If this is his position, he has just disqualified himself as the GOP nominee.
“At some point, the candidate’s words must stand on their own. What do you believe, Mr. Trump? No one knows.”
