Linda McMahon on Abortion

 

 


I'm a pro-choice woman; not part of anti-woman agenda

Murphy accused McMahon of not really supporting abortion rights, despite her repeated statements in TV ads and during the hour-long debate that she is a ''pro-choice woman.'' Murphy pointed to how McMahon has received support from anti-abortion advocates and her stance on abortion-related issues, including her support of a failed amendment to the federal health care reform law that would have allowed businesses to forgo health insurance coverage for contraception.

He warned that McMahon would support the ''anti-woman, tea party agenda'' in Washington if she becomes the state's next senator.

McMahon, who has said the failed federal amendment about contraception was an overreach by the government, reiterated her support for abortion rights and said as a mother and grandmother, she wouldn't do anything to hurt women and their health care.

Both candidates said they oppose late-term abortions unless the health and life of the mother is at risk, and both said they believe life begins at birth.

Pro-choice but with limited federal funding

I am pro-choice; however, I oppose partial-birth abortion and federal funding of abortions unless the life of the mother is at stake. I'm in favor of parental notification/parental consent legislation.
