Ohio Right to Life to backers: Should we endorse Trump?


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s oldest and largest anti-abortion group is surveying supporters about whether it should endorse Donald Trump.

Ohio Right to Life emailed the survey ahead of its president’s meeting Tuesday with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. It marks the latest sign of anxiety among political conservatives in the battleground state over Trump’s candidacy.

The letter said the group is analyzing his policy positions on its priority issues, which include abortion, adoption and euthanasia — some of which have changed over time.

It said Trump appears to present a contrast to “the radical pro-abortion candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” but that Right to Life leaders are “well aware” that anti-abortion voters have “different perspectives” on a Trump endorsement.

The survey gave three choices: endorse Trump, remain neutral or choose “unsure.”
