The third Republican Presidential Primary debate took place last Wednesday in Miami.
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump skipped the debate and instead held his own rally down the street in Hialeah, Florida.
And Pro-Life voters met Trump outside with one message he should take to heart.
Donald Trump delivered a massive victory to the Pro-Life community during his Presidency.
He was the first President in history to speak at the March for Life and he appointed the three conservative Supreme Court Justices that led to the Dobbs decision last June that overturned Roe v. Wade.
But even though Trump has helped the Pro-Life community achieve some major victories, he’s recently went soft and started to backtrack on the abortion issue.
Trump called the ban on abortions after six weeks that Ron DeSantis signed into law “too harsh” and a “terrible mistake.”
Unfortunately, Trump’s recent position seems to be to only support a ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Of course, a ban after 15 weeks would only stop six to seven percent of all abortions.
But Trump’s reversal on the abortion issue has Pro-Life voters mobilizing to try and “Make Trump Pro-Life Again.”
Last Wednesday, Trump held a rally in South Florida while his opponents debated on stage in Miami.
And Students for Life supporters and members showed up to remind Trump of his former Pro-Life views.
“A dozen members of the anti-abortion political action group Students for Life, which endorsed Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020, gathered outside the president’s rally in Hialeah on Wednesday holding signs that read ‘Make Trump Pro-Life Again,’” MSN reported.
Mary-Logan Miske, a campus organizer with Students for Life, said they were there to send a message to Trump and the GOP.
“We’re out here to send a message not only to Trump, but to the whole GOP party that we want our candidates to be unapologetically and fundamentally pro-life,” Miske said.
She then ripped Trump for blaming GOP losses on Pro-Lifers.
“He blamed pro-lifers for the loss of our midterms,” Miske said. “He said that this issue, [abortion], isn’t a federal issue,” she continued. “And his latest thing was he basically said that DeSantis passing a heartbeat bill was a terrible, terrible thing.”
Of course, Pro-Life voters are not the reason why Republicans lost last week in Virginia and Kentucky.
As SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser pointed out, “the true lesson from last night’s loss is that Democrats are going to make abortion front and center throughout the 2024 campaigns.”
“The GOP consultant class needs to wake up,” she continued, before adding that “candidates must put money and messaging toward countering the Democrats’ attacks or they will lose every time.”
Students for Life president Kristan Hawkins echoed Dannenfelser’s sentiment and blamed the GOP’s failure in Virginia on the 15-week compromise embraced by Republicans.
Hawkins said that proposal was “demoralizing to pro-life voters,” before adding that “it makes nobody happy.”
“It certainly doesn’t make the pro-life grassroots happy because it allows 90 percent of abortions to continue,” she concluded.
