RFK Jr. made a groveling apology that left Donald Trump grinning ear-to-ear

The 2024 race is heating up and all sides are coming to blows. But it may be the end of the line for one.

Because RFK Jr. made a groveling apology that left Donald Trump grinning ear-to-ear.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has clarified his position on “elective” abortions of healthy kids in late-term pregnancies.

Kennedy spoke on The Sage Steele Show earlier this week to speak out against government involvement in abortion, “even if it’s full term.”

The audio reportedly enraged enough listeners online that he published a clarifying statement on Friday on X, stating that late-term abortions should be reserved for newborns with significant health issues that threaten their viability.

“Cases like this are why I am leery of inserting the government into abortion,” wrote Kennedy.

“I had been assuming that virtually all late-term abortions were such cases, but I’ve learned that my assumption was wrong. Sometimes, women abort healthy, viable late-term fetuses. These cases of purely ‘elective’ late-term abortion are very upsetting. Once the baby is viable outside the womb, it should have rights and it deserves society’s protection.”

Kennedy said he reached his new conclusion after consulting with family, advisers, and fans.

However, throughout his campaign, he has changed his view on abortion, formerly believing that it should only be permitted during the first three months of a pregnancy.

And, frankly, the different views make no sense when taken together because they come from completely different starting principles.

Why should abortion be limited at three months? It’s before viability, so you can’t use that standard.

Why should abortion not be limited at all like he said when he got in trouble? Probably because the child can be born happy and healthy.

Now his position is that it should be judged by the nebulous standard of viability, which is getting earlier and earlier as medicine advances.

But none of it actually strikes at the heart of the issue. Does he believe pre-born children are human beings that should not be k*lled? Does he think that women have the right to end that life?

Or is he just groping in the dark for a position to hold that can help him in his “I’m the moderate candidate” gimmick?

In reality, the issue isn’t what he wants to talk about. It’s a nuisance that he has no clear feelings towards.

Kennedy’s team says he will be on the ballot in Utah, Michigan, California, Delaware, and Oklahoma.

The campaign also claims to have collected enough signatures to appear on ballots in New Hampshire, Nevada, Hawaii, North Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, Iowa, and Ohio.

Abortion is expected to be a deciding factor in the November elections. A CNN poll conducted this month found that nearly half of respondents, 49%, wanted politicians to establish nationwide abortion access protections.

Another 37% thought the decision should be left to the states. The remaining 14% favored nationwide abortion bans.
