On Monday, Donald Trump made a special announcement about abortion.

In the speech, he said abortion laws should be set by the states, without mentioning a national ban favored by many conservatives.

Something some conservatives were not happy about.

Trump faces backlash from conservatives after abortion statement

In the announcement video, Trump expressed support for IVF and for states to set abortion policies in its aftermath Roe v. Wade be overthrown.

Reuters reports“He did not support any national ban banning abortions after a certain number of weeks of pregnancy, defying the hopes of some religious and conservative supporters that he would pursue national boundaries if he returned to the White House.”

The story continued:

Trump previously expressed support for a ban after 15 weeks of pregnancy, but said political considerations were crucial in the first presidential election since a 2022 Supreme Court ruling ended a nearly 50-year federal right to the procedure.

“Always follow your heart. But we have to win. We have to win,” Trump said in the video.

Although his statement was intended to strike a political middle ground, it drew criticism from both Democrats on the left who favor abortion rights and anti-abortion groups on the right, underscoring the divisions surrounding the issue.

“This fifty-year struggle is over Roe v. Wade took it out of federal hands and into the hearts, minds and voices of the people in every state. It was really something. Now it’s up to the states to do the right thing,” Trump said.

Many conservatives thought Trump was doing the wrong thing.

Head of the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America said she was “deeply disappointed” in Trump’s position. “Unborn children and their mothers deserve national protection and national advocacy against the brutality of the abortion industry,” Dannenfelser said in a statement.

Conservative pundit Matt Walsh responded to X: “There is no such thing as ‘abortion rights.’ Rights are given by God and God does not give anyone the right, under any circumstances, to kill children.”

Some took issue with Trump’s use of the phrase “abortion rights.”

Pure politics?

Trump said he holds the same position as former President Ronald Reagan. In practice, this means that he also personally supports exceptions for the life of the mother, rape and incest.

No doubt Trump was trying to neutralize the opposition on the basis of this controversial issue, eight months before the election. Some even accused him of this directly.

How will Donald Trump’s abortion statement be responded to by the right and will it affect his standing with his core base? Time will tell.
