With the Heartbeat Bill movement gaining momentum in many red states, some states have already made abortions illegal, with Alabama passing a blanket ban on May 14, which does not even exclude rape or incest cases. President Donald shared his opinions on the subject, calling himself "strongly Pro-Life", while also challenging some of the key points in the abortion laws recently passed in Republican-controlled states.

He said on Twitter, "As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions — Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother — the same position taken by Ronald Reagan," adding, "We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new... Federal Judges (many more to come), two great new Supreme Court Justices, the Mexico City Policy, and a whole new and positive attitude about the Right to Life."

He further warned his followers that if the Pro-Lifers do not stick together, the "Radical Left" will implode on the issue. He tweeted, "The Radical Left, with late-term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue. We must stick together and Win....for Life in 2020. If we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one, all of our hard fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear!"

Trump had won over evangelical votes by promising to appoint anti-abortion justices at the Supreme Court during his 2016 campaign. Since his appointment, Trump has appointed two conservatives to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, thereby effectively shifting the balance of the nine-person bench. Following this move, pro-Lifers are more hopeful than ever before that the historic 1973 US decision to legalize abortion would be struck down soon. 

Missouri went on to pass the abortion ban on the heels of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Ohio banning abortion as soon as the conceptus' heartbeat can be detected.
