    My position is in line with Roe v. Wade. Women have a constitutional right to make these most intimate, and personal, and difficult decisions based on their conscience, their faith, their family, their doctor and it is something that really goes to the core of privacy. … There is room for reasonable kinds of restrictions after a certain point in time. … [Childbearing] is a choice, not a mandate.

    Reproductive health involves a deeply personal range of decisions that are made between a woman, her family and her health provider based on a variety of factors, such as her faith, her health and the circumstances of her pregnancy. It is not for anyone else to dictate her choices. Government funds may support hospitals and other medical facilities that offer abortion related medical services.

    Abortion: I am 100% Pro-Life. I have been for protecting the rights of the unborn person my entire life. It should be Pro-Life vs Pro-Murder (not pro-choice). The Child has no choice, so I feel we should protect them that can't.

    I am absolutely 110% pro-choice. The current abortion laws/restrictions in California are a perfectly good example of what they should be for the entire country.

    I'm pro-life personally, but asking politicians their stance is ridiculous. No pro-life president in the last 40 years has overturned Roe vs. Wade, so what's the point? Women do have a choice, and with education, they can also choose to give the right to life for their unborn child.
