Issue Position: Protecting the Unborn

Issue Position

Abortion is not a right; it is a violent act against the defenseless. It should be barred by American law. Until that day, I fully support bans on partial birth abortion. Taxpayer-funded abortion, especially the devil's bargain with Planned Parenthood, must cease immediately.

As a constitutional lawyer I have been deeply involved in federal litigation protecting unborn lives. The Hobby Lobby case, for instance, was at its core a case about the right to life: in that litigation we defeated the Obama Administration's pro-abortion drug mandate. My view is that Roe v. Wade had no basis in law or fact. As Missouri's Attorney General, I will work tirelessly to defend in court every possible limitation on Roe, with the goal of ultimately overturning that decision itself.
