Catherine Templeton on Abortion
Define personhood from conception; no exceptions for incest
Catherine Templeton has changed her position on a bill that would effectively ban all abortions in the state, saying she now supports the effort despite her earlier concerns it does not include an exception for victims of incest. Earlier in the campaign,
Templeton had distinguished herself from the rest of the GOP field by saying she believes there should be an exception for incest. That stance earned a rebuke from the bill's supporters who excoriated the candidate for being insufficiently pro-life.
In a tele-town hall, a caller asked Templeton about her position on the Personhood bill. "I would support any law in South Carolina that would reduce the number of abortions," Templeton responded. A Templeton campaign spokesman confirmed the
candidate has shifted her stance on the issue. "While campaigning, Catherine Templeton was asked to pray about her support for life and consider making no exceptions," the spokesman said. "It may not be the politically correct answer, but so be it."
