Trump: Right to Privacy and ProLife

Sarah Palin would call this the "Lame-stream media" and using one of those 'Gotcha Media' questions. Donald Trump was asked about his fervent ProLife stance and the Right to Privacy. He answers, "Well, that's a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life. I mean, it's a very unique way of asking about pro-life. What does that have to do with privacy? How are you equating pro-life with privacy?" In Republicanland, its a "gotcha" question when you're completely clueless on the topic!

Donald Trump is 100% pro-life. Except when it comes to the basis of Roe v. Wade which made abortion legal in the United States. That he agrees with, 100%.

In an interview with MSNBC's Savannah Guthrie, Trump was asked if he believes there's a right to privacy in the Constitution.

The question is an important one in the abortion debate. Pro-lifers say there absolutely is not a Constitutional right to privacy, which means Roe is a travesty and abortion should once again be permitted to be outlawed in the states that choose to do so. Pro-choicers strenuously disagree, stating that the right to privacy is guaranteed and is extended to a woman's choice to have an abortion or not, the central basis of Roe.

Trump apparently thinks he can split the difference, and appeared to have no understanding of the connection between the view of a right to privacy and the abortion debate.

"I guess there is, I guess there is," Trump said when Guthrie asked if there's a Constitutional right to privacy. "And why, just out of curiosity, why do you ask that question?"  Link



If you're a fervent fundamental, Bible-pounding, Christian PRO-LIFER, you would know all, if not most, the history and laws governing Roe v. Wade and a women's right to privacy in the Constitution. Basically, if you're Pro-Life - you are AGAINST the right to privacy in this debate.

Donald failed to link the two. Sarah Palin, you have company! Just 3 years ago, Palin also made this mistake with her interview with Katie Couric. 

He shouts from the mountaintop "I'm ProLife" to pander to the Conservative base. He knows that many conservative and religious voters would vote on this one solitary social issue. But when asked the deep-rooted laws governing abortion rights, he is completely unknowledgable.  

ProLife establishments have already villify the Trump:
Grassroots pro-life voters typically welcome converts to the pro-life cause but, in the political world, view recent converts with skepticism because they appear to have made the conversion solely because they desire pro-life votes in an upcoming election. Trump's response to the question makes it appear he needs to study up on the abortion debate if he wants his pro-life conversion to be taken seriously as the creation of the fictitious right to privacy is the hallmark of the Roe decision and one of the chief objections pro-life advocates have to it.  Link

Donald, do you believe in the Bush Doctrine???
