Trump Says Abortion Should Be Decided By States, 'Will Of The People'

•, by Tyler Durden

"My view is…the states will determine by legislation or vote or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land. In this case, the law of the state. Many states will be different, many will have a different number of weeks or some will have more conservative than others, and that's what they will be. At the end of the day, this is all about the will of the people," Trump said. "You must follow your heart or, in may cases, your religion or your faith. Do what's right for your family and do what's right for yourself…do what's right for our country."

Trump had previously indicated that he would publish his position regarding abortion, which is a large departure from a federal abortion limit that some Republicans have pushed for.

He also said regarding IVF, "We want to make it easier for mothers and families to have babies, not harder. That includes supporting the availability of fertility treatments like IVF in every state in America."

Last week, Trump told reporters at a Michigan campaign stop that he would make a statement in the coming week, after he was asked about Florida's controversial six-week abortion ban.

People are entirely looking at the idea of what abortion is in the wrong way. It's because they don't see what pregnancy is in the right way. Pregnancy (pro-creation) is a trust situation. The man is the grantor/settlor. The woman is the trustee. The new life is the beneficiary. The body being made in the woman's tummy is the property being held in trust. Abortion is destroying the body being held in trust for the beneficiary. | This is part of the reason why there isn't as much success against abortion as pro-life people would like. The body being made in the woman's tummy is private property of the beneficiary. The father or mother should be the ones fighting abortion on these grounds. But the people in office in the State should be fighting for the rights of the beneficiary just as much, because of their Oath of Office - to uphold property rights, the 4th Amendment and more. The right to private property for anyone, even a beneficiary, is one of the fundamental rights in the USA.
