Pro-life leader Marjorie Dannenfelser says Retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s position of supporting women’s rights to abortion “disqualifies” him from consideration as presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s vice-president.
“General Flynn has disqualified himself from consideration as Vice President,” the president of the Susan B. Anthony List said in a statement. “His pro-abortion position is unacceptable and would undermine the pro-life policy commitments that Mr. Trump has made throughout the campaign.”
Flynn made his comments on ABC’s This Week.
“Abortion, I think for women, these are difficult issues,” he said. “I think that’s a difficult legal decision, and I think that women are so important in that decision-making process. They are the ones that have to make the decision because they are the ones that will decide to bring up that child or not.”
The Susan B. Anthony List says Trump has “pledged to advance and sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, defund Planned Parenthood, and appoint pro-life Justices to the Supreme Court.”
