When Donald Trump commented that “the laws are set” on abortion, he articulated a profound misunderstanding of the legal realities of the issue and the impact they will have on the next president of the United States. The laws on abortion have not been “set” since the Supreme Court nationalized the issue with its 1973 edict in Roe v. Wade. And, in fact, the Obama administration has spent the past seven years federalizing matters of life through Obamacare and other administrative maneuvers, and doing what it can to thwart health and safety standards that protect women and to increase taxpayer funding for abortion. There is much a President Trump could and should do to do to reverse this disastrous course, and conservative leaders must make that clear during their much-anticipated meeting with him in New York on Tuesday.
