Josh Mandel on Abortion

 

 


Signed pledge to oppose abortion on demand without exception

Mandel was asked about a pledge he'd signed with Cincinnati Right to Life indicating he'd oppose abortion on demand without exception. He said abortion on demand does not include exceptions to protect the life of the mother.

He said he supported laws to encourage adoption, the ban of federal dollars to pay for abortions and abortions in the ninth month. "Sherrod Brown is an extremist on this issue," Mandel said.

"I trust Ohio women to make their own decisions about their health care," Brown said.

I believe in protecting life

Asked about abortion, Mandel said, "I am pro-life, I believe in protecting life," and then pivoted to say the real issue for everyone was creating jobs.

Brown said, "I trust women to make their own health care decisions," and said Mandel also opposes abortion in cases of rape and incest.

Endorsed by Ohio Right to Life PAC

Pro-life State Treasurer Josh Mandel now possesses a clear path to the GOP nod and a fighting chance at unseating pro-abortion Senator Sherrod Brown (D) in the general election.

Mandel brings a solid pro-life position to the race. Mandel received the endorsement of Ohio Right to Life PAC in his runs for State House and for Treasurer.

During his stint in the House, Mandel championed numerous pieces of life-saving legislation. He co-sponsored H.B. 280, the Protecting Pregnant Women from Coercion and Violence Act to increase penalties for domestic violence when the offender knew the victim was pregnant and to require abortion facilities to post a "No One Can Force You to Have an Abortion" notice.

Mandel co-sponsored H.B. 314, the Ultrasound Viewing Option Bill and H.B. 102, a bill to promote umbilical cord blood donation as an ethical source of stem cells.
