STEVE CORTES (FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN ADVISER): There is no right to an abortion, clearly, neither explicit nor implied in the Constitution. Therefore, states very much have a right to regulate or even prohibit abortion. 


The democratic process is going to arrive, as I mentioned earlier, at very different determinations in different states and that is how it's supposed to work in this country. So, you know, as Terry Schilling mentioned, in a lot of ways this is not a finality; this is the beginning. This is the beginning of the process where we can return it to the people, always should have been, and the deliberative democratic process can decide, as it should decide on all these fundamental issues on life — things like what constitutes a marriage, when does life begin. These fundamental, foundational elements of our life and our society must be decided via the deliberative process, not by dictate from [INAUDIBLE].
