Trump declared he would “never” call for birth control restrictions, after saying he was “looking at” birth control restrictions

From Mitch McConnell to the Supreme Court’s conservative side, there are plenty of people to blame for overthrowing the government Roe v. Wade in June 2022. One person who deserves most of the blame is Donald Trump, who vowed in his first presidential run to nominate exclusively anti-abortion judges, and then did just that. And now, nearly two years after the constitutional right to abortion was repealed, the man in charge is suggesting birth control could be on the table.

In an interview on Pittsburgh news station KDKA, Trump was asked: “Do you support any restrictions on a person’s right to contraception?” And his answer was not a resounding “no.” Instead, he replied: “We’re looking at that and I’ll be releasing a policy on that soon and I think it’s something you’ll find interesting. And that’s another very interesting problem, but I think you’ll find it very clever; I think it was a smart decision. But we will release it soon.”

When asked if he hinted that he would support states’ options to ban certain contraceptives, Trump said only that he would provide more details “within a week or so” and added: “It really has a lot to do with the states, and some states will have different policies than others.”

Obviously, that’s an incredibly cold thing for a man who could soon be president (again) to say. After his comments appeared, Trump took to Truth Social to declare: “I HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER SUPPORT RESTRICTIONS ON BIRTH CONTROL OR other contraceptives. This is a fabricated lie by the Democratic Party, FALSE INFORMATION/MISINFORMATION, because they have nothing else to rely on except FAILURE, POVERTY AND DEATH. I DO NOT SUPPORT A BAN ON BIRTH CONTROL, AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WILL NOT!”

Why didn’t Trump say that in the interview? Only he knows. Still, it is no consolation to know that the former president reportedly would not “support” birth control restrictions, since his official stance on reproductive rights is that he is happy to let States do whatever they want.

in one Time In an interview published last month, Trump said the federal government should not be involved in enacting partial or total abortion bans by states, even if said states take the step black in tracking pregnancies so they can prosecute anyone who has an abortion after the law says they can. “I think they can do it,” Trump said of the worrying prospect. Asked if he was comfortable with states criminally charging women who have abortions after the law allows them, he said: “Whether I’m comfortable or not is irrelevant. That is completely irrelevant because the states will make those decisions.” (EQUAL Time Attention, President Joe Biden “has said he will fight the state’s anti-abortion measures in court and regulation.”)

Trump may think that proposing to limit access to contraceptives would help him politically, as he did in his interview with KDKA, but in reality doing so would be extremely unpopular like. EQUAL The Washington Post note, a 2023 Gallup poll found that 88% of Americans—including 86% of Republicans—“say birth control is morally acceptable.”

In a statement, a Biden campaign spokesperson said: “Women across the country have suffered as a result of Donald Trump.fish eggs nightmare, and if he wins a second term, he clearly wants to go even further by restricting access to contraception and the emergency contraceptive pill.”
