Donald Trump Explains Conversion to Pro-Life Side on Abortion
Business mogul Donald Trump shocked attendees at the conservative CPAC conference in February when he declared himself pro-life after years of supporting the pro-abortion position.
Several months ago, when questioned about his position, Trump responded by saying the public "would be surprised" by his stance and, in an interview with Laura Ingraham from Fox News leading up to the conference, Trump characterized himself as "pro-life" and he repeated that apparent reversal when he told the audience at CPAC, "I am pro-life" and pledged to fight for the reversal of Obamacare, which contains abortion funding loopholes.
That was a marked change from how Trump described himself in his 2000 book The America We Deserve, where he wrote, "I support a woman's right to choose but I am uncomfortable with the procedures."
Today, in a new interview with CBN News" David Brody, Trump explains the evolution of his thinking and how stories of pregnancies - including one in particular - helped change his mind on abortion.
"Evangelicals do want to feel secure that they"re going to have a nominee that's going to at least be solid on those issues, those social issues. Someone that's not just going to cut and move on," Brody said to Trump.
The billionaire responded, "One thing about me, I"m a very honorable guy. I"m pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago." Ref. Source 9
