Ivanka Trump said this week that she “unapologetically” supports the “pro-life” movement, which aims to strip reproductive rights from women.

President Donald Trump’s daughter was asked about her views on abortion during an interview with Real Clear Politics.

“I respect all sides of a very personal and sensitive discussion,” Ivanka told the publication. “But I am also a mother of three children, and parenthood affected me in a profound way in terms of how I think about these things.”

“I am pro-life, and unapologetically so,” she added.

Former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards revealed in her 2018 book that Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner had offered what she described as a “bribe” if the organization would stop performing abortions.

“If Planned Parenthood wanted to keep our federal funding,” Richards recalled, “we would have to stop providing abortions. He described his ideal outcome: a national headline reading ‘Planned Parenthood Discontinues Abortion Services.’”

Doug Ducey (R-AZ) looking at his phone and then ignoring a phone call from Donald Trump who had been imploring the GOP governor to not certify his state's votes handing victory to President-elect Joe Biden.

The video of Ducey looking at his phone as it played "Hail to the Chief," and then placing it facedown on the desk, went viral late Monday afternoon.

‘It’s over’: Joe Biden’s win is certified in all key states — and Donald Trump can’t handle the truth

Published

Since Nov. 7, the result of the 2020 presidential race has been clear: Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump by a substantial enough margin that the outcome has never really been in doubt by serious observers. But on Monday, the results met a new official threshold as Arizona and Wisconsin became the final decisive swing states to certify their votes.

"All six key states have now certified their election results with Joe Biden as the winner," said attorney Marc Elias, who has been involved in key election law cases for the Democratic Party. "Trump and his allies remain 1-39 in court."
