CWN Editor's Note: Former President Donald Trump said that a Florida law barring abortion after six weeks of gestation was “a terrible thing” and “a terrible mistake,” in an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Asked how he would settle the abortion issue if he became President again, Trump said: “I would sit down with both sides and I’d negotiate something, and we’ll end up with peace on that issue for the first time in 52 years.” But he declined to say whether he would sign an abortion ban into law.

    The dilemma for Catholic conservative voters is whether we want to have a conservative candidate (whether Trump or another Republican) win the most important election in the Republic's history since 1860. Any person not open to whatever "reasonable" compromise can be made on this issue, that would preclude "independent" voters from voting for the Democrat in 2024, will ensure a Democrat's election and the exacerbation of left-wing, tyrannical, non-constitutional rule, for the indefinite future.
