In case there was any doubt about how toxic Donald Trump’s record is on abortion, his presidential campaign announcement featured exactly zero mentions of how he put three conservative justices on the Supreme Court who overturned Roe v. Wade — and paved the way for Republicans across the country to pass abortion bans.
As former Vice President Mike Pence just reminded us, the Trump-Pence administration’s “GREATEST accomplishment” was nominating three Supreme Court justices responsible for overturning Roe v. Wade.
Pence: “The greatest accomplishment [of our administration] was three Supreme Court Justices [who overturned Roe v. Wade.]”
Remember: Trump previously called for “punishing” women who get an abortion.
Donald Trump: “There has to be some form of punishment [for women who have abortions]”
Trump praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe at a rally following the decision.
PBS: “At a Saturday night rally, Trump took another victory lap to cheers from the crowd. ‘Yesterday the court handed down a victory for the Constitution, a victory for the rule of law, and above all, a victory for life,’ he told supporters, who broke into a chant of ‘Thank you Trump!’”
