State of Utah Archives: on Abortion


Jonathan Swinton: I don't want federal funds to pay for abortions

This is the common sense approach I will take as Utah's U.S. senator:Because many in the country are uncomfortable with Planned Parenthood being supported at all, another option could be to find alternative service providers.

Chuck Baldwin: Overturn Roe v. Wade

Baldwin favors overturning Roe v. Wade, noting the Republican Party is “phony” on the issue. “They have done nothing to stop abortion on demand, even though they had the entire federal government for six years,” he said. “We feel that now the Republican Party is probably on the last legs of its existence.”
