While Donald Trump has claimed his former pro-abortion views are a thing of the past, some pro-lifers question his convictions on abortion, or even his knowledge of the topic, following a series of ill-advised remarks from the current GOP presidential frontrunner.
Students for Life is seeking to assist Trump in coming to a better understanding of the pro-life position by inviting him to a “remedial training” course called ‘Being Pro-Life 101.’ On Monday, the pro-life group tweeted a call for Trump to receive education on abortion issues.

“Donald Trump is clearly in need of education on pro-life issues,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life.
He potentially set the pro-life movement back decades when he declared women should be “punished” for having an illegal abortion. He has said that Planned Parenthood does “wonderful things” even though they are the nation’s largest abortion vendor and have been proven by the U.S. House of Representatives last week to have made tens of thousands in profits from selling the parts of babies they aborted. And he said he wants to change the GOP platform to reflect the three exceptions he believes in for abortion (rape, incest, life of the mother).
Hawkins went on to explain that Students for Life offers hundreds of trainings per year, and would be happy to provide Trump with his own personal training session to help him correct his views on abortion.
