New Delhi: While the citizens of India are gearing up for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections 2024, the people of United States of America (USA) are also getting ready to elect their President, as the US Presidential Elections 2024 are underway. This time, it is going to be ‘Biden vs Trump’ as Donald Trump is the nominee of the Republican Party and Joe Biden is the nominee of the Democratic Party. In a latest update, the Republican nominee has said that if elected, he would stand in support of a national ban on abortions in the country, at around 15 weeks of pregnancy. Read to know about it in detail…

Trump To Support National Ban On Abortions?

As mentioned earlier, Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that he’d support a national ban on abortions around 15 weeks of pregnancy, voicing for the first time support for a specific limit on the procedure. The Republican former president has taken credit for striking down a federally guaranteed right to abortion by appointing three US Supreme Court justices who voted to overturn Roe vs Wade. As he seeks the White House a third time, Trump has refrained from embracing any specific limit on the procedure, warning it could backfire politically and instead suggesting he would “negotiate” a policy on abortion that would include exceptions for cases of rape, incest and to protect the life of the mother.

Republican Nominee Criticizes Democrats For Not Endorsing Ban That…

But in a radio interview Tuesday, Trump criticized Democrats for not endorsing a ban that would limit abortions in states that still allow the procedure. “We’re going to come up with a time — and maybe we could bring the country together on that issue,” Trump said while calling into the “Sid and Friends in the Morning” show on WABC. Trump went on to say: “The number of weeks now, people are agreeing on 15. And I’m thinking in terms of that. And it’ll come out to something that’s very reasonable. But people are really, even hard-liners are agreeing, seems to be, 15 weeks seems to be a number that people are agreeing at.” At the same time, Trump seemed to suggest reluctance to a federal ban.

“Everybody agrees — you’ve heard this for years — all the legal scholars on both sides agree: It’s a state issue. It shouldn’t be a federal issue, it’s a state issue,” he said. Last month, Trump’s campaign dismissed reports that he privately had expressed for a ban on abortion after 16 weeks of pregnancy, calling the report “fake news.” The campaign did not offer details on Trump’s plans, only saying he planned to “negotiate a deal” on abortion.

Later Tuesday, after casting his ballot in Florida’s Republican presidential primary, Trump was asked by a reporter about a ban on abortions at 16 weeks and said, “We’ll be talking about that soon.” Abortion rights have been a galvanizing issue for voters in recent years, and Democrats and President Joe Biden’s campaign are preparing to spotlight the issue as a clear split from Trump in the 2024 election.

The US Presidential Elections will be held on Tuesday, November 5, 2024 and whoever secures victory, will serve was the President of America in the White House for four years, from January 2025.
