Trump Privately Expresses Support for a 16-Week Abortion Ban

February 17, 2024

One thing Mr. Trump likes about a 16-week federal ban on abortions is that it’s a round number. “Know what I like about 16?” Mr. Trump told one of these people, who was given anonymity to describe a private conversation. The type of ban that Mr. Trump has discussed privately would restrict abortion rights in the remaining 30 states where it is legal beyond that point. A leading anti-abortion group criticized him for that statement, but its leader was appeased after meeting with Mr. Trump and Mr. Graham.
