Donald Trump never saw it coming.
All hell is about to break loose in the election.
And that’s because Donald Trump heard three tragic words that will change everything in 2024.
Donald Trump did more for the pro-life cause than any previous Republican president.
Trump was the first president to speak live at the March for Life.
And most importantly, Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees provided the votes that corrected a 49-year wrong and overturned the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision.
But as the 2024 election gears up Trump is not campaigning on his record of advancing the pro-life cause and helping bring America one step closer to ending abortion in America.
Instead, Trump made the big mistake of falling back on the failed strategy from the 2022 election and pretending like the abortion issue doesn’t exist.
Last year establishment GOP leaders and consultants counseled GOP candidates to ignore abortion and focus on crime and inflation.
But the enemy gets a vote.
And Democrats slimed Republicans with hundreds of millions of dollars in attacks falsely claiming Republican candidates who supported pro-life legislation would kill women.
The Washington Post asked all GOP presidential candidates if they supported any federal pro-life legislation.
Trump responded by taking the 2022 approach and saying the issue should be left up to the states.
Pro-life leaders were not happy with Trump.
Founder and Executive Director of Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising Terrisa Bukovinac slammed Trump as “unfit to lead” for refusing to back federal pro-life legislation.
“Any candidate who does not vocally support a federal ban to stop the abortion genocide has not earned the support of the pro-life movement,” Bukovinac’s statement read. “Trump and other Republicans cowering in the face of literal child killing makes them totally unfit to lead. We will not allow both parties to turn their backs on the unborn.”
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser put out a statement singling out Donald Trump for not taking a strong stand on life and said her organization would not back any candidate in 2024 who does not support at least federal protections for the unborn at 15 weeks.
“President Trump’s assertion that the Supreme Court returned the issue of abortion solely to the states is a completely inaccurate reading of the Dobbs decision and is a morally indefensible position for a self-proclaimed pro-life presidential candidate to hold. Life is a matter of human rights, not states’ rights. Saying that the issue should only be decided at the states is an endorsement of abortion up until the moment of birth, even brutal late-term abortions in states like California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey. The only way to save these children is through federal protections, such as a 15-week federal minimum standard when the unborn child can feel excruciating pain,” Dannenfelser’s statement read.
“We will oppose any presidential candidate who refuses to embrace at a minimum a 15-week national standard to stop painful late-term abortions while allowing states to enact further protections,” Dannenfelser added.
The issue of life could prove decisive in the 2024 election.
Iowa kicks off the GOP nominating process with its caucus.
In 2016, 64 percent of caucus-goers identified as evangelical Christians.
Life is the number-one issue for these voters.
Ted Cruz won 34 percent of evangelical Christians compared to Trump winning just 22 percent.
Cruz rode the support of evangelicals to a win in Iowa.
Trump recovered the following week in New Hampshire.
But 2024 will be different.
Donald Trump is a former president dominating the GOP field.
If Trump loses in Iowa because evangelical Christians do not see Trump as sufficiently committed to life it could open up a path for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to defeat Trump much in the same way Barack Obama’s surprise win over Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Iowa Caucuses propelled Obama to the nomination and eventually the White House.
