Georgia Democratic Governor Candidate Stacey Abrams Revealed Radical Abortion Belief
She’s the Democratic candidate for governor in the state of Georgia and she has revealed some pretty extreme beliefs about abortion.
Stacey Abrams likes to distinguish herself from the Republican incumbent Brian Kemp in the Georgia race for governor. And boy did she declare a difference on the issue of the life of unborn babies.
Abrams declared that she is in favor of abortions even “until the time of birth” under certain conditions.
The Democratic candidate made an appearance on the Left’s media darling “The View.” She boldly positioned herself as radically pro-choice and called abortion restrictions “artificial timelines.”
“I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision,” Abrams said. “And arbitrary, politically defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.
“For example,” she continued, “a six-week ban tells women they have to make reproductive choices before they know they’re pregnant. And that arbitrariness extends into these artificial timelines.
“What I believe,” she added, “is that it’s a decision that should be made between a woman and her doctor, that viability is the metric, and that if a woman’s health or life is in danger, then viability extends until the time of birth.”
Abrams has been emphasizing the abortion issue ever since the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. Gov. Kemp defeated Abrams in 2018, and he supports banning most abortions after six weeks.
Abrams talks about how she has “evolved” in her understanding of abortion. She was raised in a “very religious family,” and her parents and church taught her that abortion was wrong. But then she went to college and her thinking began to slowly change.
“Over the course of the next few years, I really started thinking about what role should the legislature play? What role should government play?” she said. “This is health care. This is about a woman’s right to control her body. … And that, for me, as a matter of faith, means that I don’t impose those value systems on others. More importantly, I protect her rights. I protect her humanity, and that should be my responsibility.”
It’s hard to imagine that the majority of folks in Georgia will agree with her radical stance that would kill a baby right up to birth.
