As we age one's viewpoint can change based on lifeexperiences. Up until about 15 years ago, Donald Trump was pro-choice but has always said that he hated the concept of abortion. Donald Trump was even quoted saying this during a taping of NBC's Meet The Press with the late Tim Russert.
As medical technology improved many people started changing their views on abortion from pro-choice to pro-life as we were now able to clearly see the fetus in a mother's womb. Statistics even show that more and more people are becoming pro-life.
Donald Trump's epiphany came with a friend of his.
One thing about me, I’m a very honorable guy. I’m pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago. One of the reasons I changed — one of the primary reasons — a friend of mine’s wife was pregnant, in this case married. She was pregnant and he didn’t really want the baby. And he was telling me the story.
He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him.
And you know here’s a baby that wasn’t going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life.
