(TheRedWire.com) – On Sunday, the former President criticized a 6-week abortion ban. However, on Tuesday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to defend the ban and criticize Trump.
In his statement, he argued that there was nothing ‘terrible’’’ about defending the right to life. He added that Georgia has not only passed a heartbeat bill but is also protecting the value of life by implementing foster care and adoption reforms and combating human trafficking. He added that as long as he is the state’s governor, they would continue to do this.
Georgia currently has a ban on abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy. The Georgia Supreme Court reinstated the ban after a lower court ruling that had found the ban to be “unconstitutional.”
In his interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump had slammed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for signing a six-week abortion ban and argued that it was “terrible.” He claimed he would find a solution that would make both sides happy.
However, following these statements, Trump faced some blowback, as a New York Times/ Siena College poll found that 70 percent of Trump supporters supported the imposition of a six-week abortion ban.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) also took to X to defend her state’s law that she had signed bans abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy. She argued there was nothing “terrible” about protecting innocent lives and was “proud of the fetal heartbeat bill” that her state had passed.
