    The US states would decide the fate of abortion law, Donald Trump said in an interview with CBS on Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President-elect Donald Trump said in an interview with CBS' 60 minutes show aired Sunday that he would appoint "pro-life" judges to deal with the abortion rights, which should "go back to the states."

    "Here’s what’s going to happen… I’m pro-life. The judges will be pro-life… Having to do with abortion – if it ever were overturned, it would go back to the states. So it would go back to the states," he said.

    When asked if some women in the United States would not be able to get an abortion, Trump said "Yeah, well, they’ll perhaps have to go, they’ll have to go to another state."
