Jim Dexter on Abortion


Voted YES on banning partial birth abortions.

This legislation, if enacted, would ban the abortion procedure in which the physician partially delivers the fetus before completing the abortion. [A NO vote supports abortion rights].

Dexter says, "I do not favor choice when the fetus has reached a stage of viability without artificial support outside the womb."

Status: Bill Passed Y)63; N)34; NV)3

Reference: Partial Birth Abortion Ban; Bill S. 1692 ; vote number 1999-340 on Oct 21, 1999

Voted NO on disallowing overseas military abortions.

The Murray amdt would have repealed current laws prohibiting overseas U.S. military hospitals and medical facilities from performing privately funded abortions for U.S. service members and their dependents.

Dexter says, "Any servicewoman or wife should pay for her own pregnancy-terminating procedure at a non-gov't facility at home or overseas."
