Scott Campaign Press Release - In Case You Missed It...Tim Scott: I Am 100% Pro-Life & Call On Other Candidates To Join Me At 15 Weeks
Kristen Welker: Senator Scott, I'd like you to weigh in. Do you – how do you see the path forward? And what do you make of what Ambassador Haley just said, Do you see this as a consensus issue?
Tim Scott: Well, I'm 100% pro-life. I have a 100% pro-life voting record. I would certainly as President the United States have a 15-week national limit. I would not allow states like California, Illinois or New York to have an abortion up until the day of birth. I certainly wouldn't allow for governors like the former Democratic governor of Virginia who talked about infanticide. We need a 15 week federal limit. Three out of four Americans agree with a 15-week limit. 47 out of 50 countries in Europe agree with a 15-week limit. I would challenge both Nikki and Ron to join me at a 15-week limit. It is in our nation's best interest, and frankly I think it's unethical and immoral to allow for abortions up until the day of birth. We have an opportunity in this nation to stop reckless behavior from states like California, New York, and Illinois and go step further. In my parents plan we start by talking about funding and allocating resources to crisis pregnancy centers. We should support adoption. There are a number of ways that we can say to the expectant mother, that we stand with you. We should not only be pro life before the child was born, we should be pro-life after the child is born just as much.
