– States' rights

The highly controversial decision from the Supreme Court came after Trump was allowed to appoint three conservative justices to the Supreme Court during his presidency. Thus the majority shifted in the conservative direction.

Since then, the issue of abortion has characterized large parts of political debate in the United States.

Trump now believes it is up to the states to decide what type of abortion law they will implement. This means, for example, that Arizona recently saw its abortion ban go into effect as of 1864. In Florida, a law prohibiting abortion after the sixth week of pregnancy recently went into effect.

-You don't need a federal ban. Roe v. Wade was not so much about abortion as it was about bringing it back to the United States. So countries negotiate agreements. Florida will be different than Georgia. Georgia will be different from other places, Trump says in an interview with Time magazine.

When asked if he would sign a federal abortion ban, Trump responded:

– It's about states' rights.
