Trump says ‘Pro-Life’ but favours exceptions for rape, incest

US President Donald Trump

Disagreement among Republicans over Alabama's law - which forbids abortion in nearly all circumstances, even in cases of rape and incest - is becoming apparent, and Mr Trump sees Democrats taking advantage of this.

US President Donald Trump Trump says he opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk.

Hailing from liberal New York City and decades before aligning with the GOP as he neared a serious run for president, Mr Trump favoured abortion rights.

President Donald Trump said he favors exceptions to bans on abortion in a series of tweets on Saturday night.

Trump's position is different than one taken by Alabama Republicans, who passed a near-total ban on the procedure. That's the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. Four governors have signed bills banning abortion if an embryonic heartbeat can be detected.

The president added that judicial measures, such as his appointment of conservative Supreme Court judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, had helped to make abortion laws in various states more restrictive.

Last year, the Trump administration said it would bar clinics that perform abortions from receiving federal family-planning funds by requiring a "bright line" separating clinics that can receive federal funding from organisations that provide abortions or referrals to abortion clinics. "We will stand together to defend our right to safe, legal abortion".

Mr Trump also claimed that "The Radical Left" is "imploding on this issue" and urged Republican unity on abortion to keep Democrats from winning.

But still, "I just don't think there is the full element you need to prove an obstruction of justice case".

"But it is a sacrifice I believe is essential to keep China from continuing to kill our jobs and kill our businesses that employ our people".

Republicans believe the politics of abortion have shifted somewhat in their favour in recent years.

Supporters of Alabama's abortion ban say they expect the law to be blocked in court, but hope that the appeals process will bring it before the US Supreme Court.

White House political advisers suggest polling data shows the public is open to tighter abortion restrictions than now exist. 314 - one of the most extreme attacks on the right to abortion in recent memory - into law. H.B.

Among the thousands of women sharing their personal abortion stories online was United States actress Holly Marie Combs, who is know from Charmed and Pretty Little Liars.

Actions will be held Tuesday at noon local time at state houses, town squares and court houses across the country, with other events planned throughout the week.

Pence's spokeswoman, Alyssa Farah, today declined further comment.
