PALM BEACH, FLORIDA: On Monday, June 10, former President Donald Trump delivered a prerecorded speech at an event organized by the Danbury Institute, a group that regards abortion as "the greatest atrocity facing our generation" and condemns it as "child sacrifice."

According to Mediaite, the organization advocates for a complete ban on the procedure, without any exceptions.

Trump's rousing address to anti-abortion group

The 2024 presumptive GOP nominee made a commitment to stand in solidarity with the organization during his address at the institute’s Life & Liberty Forum.

“These are difficult times for our nation, and your work is so important,” Trump said. “We can’t afford to have anyone sit on the sidelines. Now is the time for us all to pull together and to stand up for our values and for our freedoms. And you just can’t vote Democrat. They’re against religion. They’re against your religion in particular. You cannot vote for Democrats.”



 

The 77-year-old MAGA strongman characterized the United States as “a seriously declining nation.”

“I know what’s happening,” he continued. “I know where you’re coming from and where you’re going. And I’ll be with you, side by side.”

In 2022, Trump appointed three justices to the US Supreme Court, all of whom supported the overturning of Roe v Wade and the constitutional right to abortion.

Initially, the ex-president publicly gloated at his achievement. However, in April, he opposed to endorse a federal abortion ban saying that the issue should be left up to states, leading to disappointment among anti-abortion advocates who continued to crusade him for support.

Subsequently, numerous states have implemented various abortion restrictions following the overturning of Roe.

However, some Republicans have cautioned against adopting an extreme position on the issue in the lead-up to the 2024 elections, recognizing it as a significant factor in the party's failure to recapture the Senate and its thin margin in regaining the House during the 2022 midterms.

Internet mocks Trump for flip-flopping on federal abortion ban stance 

People online derided the former POTUS for refusing to sign into law a nationwide restriction on abortion last month and then turning around and completely discarding it in his address at the Danbury Institute's Monday event.

One person commented, "Con man Trump tells whatever rubes he's speaking to at the time exactly what they want to hear ... and then denies he said it the next day. Imagine how low someone's self-esteem would need to be to still be getting worked over by this has-been con man."

Another remarked, "Trump knew his supporters were the dumbest people to ever walk the face of the Earth when he got them to believe Mexico would pay for a border wall, he knows they will believe anything he says."

Someone else wrote, "Tomorrow he'll be pro-choice. The only thing he consistently supports is tax cuts for the rich."

One person quipped, "CUT THE AD RIGHT NOW, DNC."

Another said, "For those keeping score, Trump said it was up to the states as recent as last week. Next week he will say something different to a different audience."

Someone claimed, "Trump does not care about abortion. He panders."
