President Donald Trump broke his silence on the increasing trend of states passing restrictive abortion bans late Saturday, denouncing bills like the one that passed last week in Alabama.
Trump said he is "strongly Pro-Life," but said he does favor allowing women to get abortions in the case of rape, incest or the health of the mother.
The bill passed by the Alabama legislature and signed by Gov. Kay Ivey on Wednesday contains no exemption for rape or incest, though it does allow abortions if the mother's life is threatened.

Fake news in title. Trump never said he opposed it. Read the article...it is not in there.
Oh, good. The Fake News Media finally cares what President Trump things about things. Maybe now they’ll get on board with his thoughts on illegal immigration.
This does not sound like denouncing Alabama law.
“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. We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new.....
Didn't even have to read it. Once I saw it was from "YAHOO" I knew it was going to be BS, so I'll just take your word for it.
President Trump DID NOT denounce the bill!!!!!!!!!
He stated his opinion, thats all.
He said we should be united for LIFE!
He is the most Prolife President we have ever had
Lots of folks have always believed incest, rape and health of mother should or must be considered.....
This bill leaves out incest and rape
I support these bills passed state by state!
God bless their governors and legislators!!!!
He doesn’t oppose it, he just stated his stance - which is probably the only one with national possibilities for the near future as the battle goes on.
Thank you....too many concern trolls around always willing to bite the left-slanted “reporting”...
Ah, this is a favor to us. A lot of “swing” voters who are pro abortion and but lazy will read the title, think the POTUS isn’t 100 on board with Alabama’s decision and that’s all they will remember until the elections.
Sounds impossible but then a lot about America now once sounded impossible.
Allowing for rape incest abortion is schizophrenic.
I believe there should be exceptions for rape, incest should be based on specifics.
Yep, why blame a child and murder them because their dad was a rapist? Are we also going to start prosecuting the living for crimes of their fathers?
This is a states rights issue. Abortion is not.mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. only Congress can write law and its. It part of the 18 enumerated powers of congress. Like Slavery, the SCOTUS got this wrong the first time.
Mother’s LIFE is Basically a FAKE REASON. C-Sections solved that issues decades ago. Only a Etopic (Tubal) Pregnancy is a Life or Death issue.
