President Donald Trump said he has a “solution” to the abortion debate in preparation for a pro-abortion Democrat majority in the U.S. House next year.
The Hill reports Trump did not provide any details about his plan Wednesday during a press conference with journalists.
Asked about his pro-life goals in light of the midterm election losses, Trump responded: “I won’t be able to explain that to you. Because it is an issue that is a very divisive, polarizing issue. But there is a solution, I think that I have that solution. And nobody else does.”

What his solution will be is anyone’s guess. Next year, the House narrowly will be controlled by pro-abortion Democrats, while the Senate will be in the control of pro-life Republicans. This divide will make it even more difficult for pro-life laws to reach the president’s desk.
In the past two years, Trump has achieved several pro-life victories in office, one of the biggest being the reinstatement and expansion of the Mexico City policy, which prohibits tax dollars from funding groups that provide or promote abortion overseas. This defunded the international arm of Planned Parenthood by about $100 million tax dollars.
His administration is trying to cut funding from the abortion giant Planned Parenthood in other ways, too, including money to its disastrous sex education program. However, Planned Parenthood sued. and a judge blocked the cuts in court.
Under his administration, the Department of Justice also is investigating whether Planned Parenthood broke the law by selling aborted baby body parts.
His judicial appointees to the U.S. Supreme Court and other benches also are a promising sign for the future of unborn babies’ rights. With the U.S. Senate in pro-life Republican control next year, more pro-life judges likely will be confirmed.
And with two new conservative justices on the Supreme Court, hope remains that America will restore protections to babies in the womb.
