During that time his opinion changed from pro-choice to pro-life, and he claims that each and every life is precious. Christie's attendance to the dinner party will offer a spectrum of opinions on both sides of the argument.  

Warren E. Burger

Burger was the 15th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.  In 1969 President Nixon appointed Burger as the Supreme Court Justice, with the hopes that he would rule conservatively. In the major case Roe v Wade, Burger and the Supreme Court voted liberally and made abortion legal.

Donald Trump is a major economic and political figure in America and holds a Pro- Life view on abortion. Trump was once a Pro- Choice advocate but changed his views after the pregnancy of his friend's wife. His friend's wife came close to having an abortion, and now seeing the family happy together, he feels as though abortion is not right.
