I just came across an article that talked about Marjorie Dannenfelser, the President of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America — a nonprofit group that works to end abortion in the United States by electing antiabortion politicians.
The article noted that she, perhaps more than any other woman, is responsible for the fall of Roe vs. Wade because of her key role in “getting President Trump to commit to appoint U.S. Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion.”
As I looked at the picture accompanying the article (with Trump standing next to Ms. Dannenfelser), I couldn’t help but wonder why Trump would have made this commitment. There is little doubt that during his playboy days, he had “women-friends” who would have sought abortion. And there is even less doubt (in fact there is proof) that many in Congress have slipped a few bucks under the table for their outside-of-marriage lady-friends to “take care of things.”
But I suppose it’s like everything that goes on in the political world … hypocrisy is the name of the game.
(Besides, there are still states that support abortion, so for the political crowd, nothing has really changed.)
