Trump thought he had the 2024 Republican nomination in the bag. But he’s got a major problem.
And now Donald Trump is seething in rage after being blindsided with betrayal.
There’s a reason why Donald Trump soared to the top of the preliminary Republican primary polls.
He’s a known quantity and conservative Americans know what to expect out of a Donald Trump presidency.
He’s certainly not going to bend the knee to the political class like so many of our White House officials have over the past couple decades.
But there’s a major problem that Donald Trump has to deal with ahead of the 2024 election season.
That problem is coming in the form of pro-life conservative organizations who are suddenly going on the attack against Donald Trump.
A major pro-life group known as Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America has released a statement saying that Donald Trump simply isn’t pro-life enough for them.
The Donald Trump campaign said that they supported the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling of June 2022 that effectively sent the issue of abortion back to the states.
For Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, apparently this isn’t enough for them to support him.
They put out a statement that said they will oppose Donald Trump if he does not “embrace” a 15-week national abortion ban.
“We will oppose any presidential candidate who refuses to embrace at a minimum a 15-week national standard to stop painful late-term abortions while allowing states to enact further protections,” SBA President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a prepared statement.
But SBA wasn’t the only group to go on the attack against Donald Trump.
President of Students for Life of America, Kristan Hawkins, took to Twitter to say that her organization wouldn’t support “any candidate for President who doesn’t agree that abortion is a federal, state, and local issue.”
She also said that support for a 15-week national ban is a minimum requirement for them to endorse any candidate for President.
To be clear, any federal candidate running for office must support at MINIMUM a federal heartbeat abortion protection act to earn our votes.

There’s no doubt that Donald Trump ran the most pro-life presidency that Americans had seen in a very long time.
His three Supreme Court picks are very much a major reason why Dobbs overturned Roe v. Wade in the first place.
These pro-life groups want more assurance from Donald Trump that he isn’t going to forget that there’s still work to be done, though.
On the flip side, many conservatives believe that the federal government should be kept to a minimum, and a part of that would mean leaving the issue of abortion to states that might be better equipped to deal with the issue.
Either way, Donald Trump needs to address this issue ahead of the 2024 Republican primary session because the pro-life vote is not inconsequential for the success of his campaign.
