Ivanka Trump declares pro-life stance publicly for first time

3

Motherhood has led Ivanka Trump to adopt an “unapologetic” pro-life stance, the first daughter said in an interview — her first public statement supporting the position.

The senior adviser to the president told Real Clear Politics her view on abortion has changed since her father’s first run for office in 2016.

Four years ago, Ivanka Trump didn’t take a stand on the galvanizing issue. And after President Trump took office, in 2017, she even met secretly with then-Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. At the time, she said she wanted to know more about the organization.

Now, she said, her viewpoint is clear.

“I respect all sides of a very personal and sensitive discussion,” Ivanka Trump said, “but I am also a mother of three children, and parenthood affected me in a profound way in terms of how I think about these things.”

For the first time, she stated publicly: “I am pro-life, and unapologetically so.”
