New Biden Ad Needles Trump on His Support for a National Abortion Ban

President Joe Biden‘s campaign released a new ad on Tuesday calling for Donald Trumpthe Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for president, due to his support for a nationwide crackdown on abortion access.

“In 2016, Donald Trump ran to overturn Roe v. Wade. Now, in 2024, he wants to pass a national ban on women’s right to choose,” Biden says in the ad. “I am working to make Roe v. Wade the law of the land again so that we have a federal guarantee of the right to choose. Donald Trump doesn’t trust women. I do.”

Trump has not explicitly advocated a nationwide ban on abortion, but he indicated in a radio interview last month that he would likely support a federal ban on the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

“The number of weeks that people are agreeing on now is 15, and I’m thinking in terms of that, and it’s going to come out to something that’s very reasonable,” he said recently on WABC’s “Sid & Friends in the Morning.” . “But people really agree, even the hardliners agree, it seems like 15 weeks is a number that people agree on. But I will make that announcement at the right time.”

The comments echo a New York Times report from February in which Trump privately told advisers and allies that he liked the idea of ​​a 16-week abortion ban.

Biden doubled down on his support for abortion access on Tuesday with a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, expressing outrage at the Florida Supreme Court upholding the state’s six-week abortion ban.

“I remain committed to protecting reproductive freedom in Florida and across the US,” Biden said said.

Vice President Kamala Harris also objected to the court’s decision.

“The decision to leave Florida’s abortion ban in place will not only harm the women of Florida, but millions of women who may have traveled to the state to seek reproductive health care,” she said. wrote at X. “Trump caused this health care crisis.”
