Issue 6 ----- Abortion



Candidates Express Their Views on Abortion.

We asked the candidates for their responses to 13 questions. Over the next few days, we will post their answers. We put the candidates names in the blogomatic candidate randomization selector, so the order of their answers is totally random. Here's the sixth of our questions.


What is your position on abortion?

Baker

I don’t believe government can or should make personal decisions for individuals and families; however, I do not approve of abortion. Government’s role must be to support life by providing assistance to individuals and families.

I support the Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act and oppose the use of taxpayer funding for abortion. I will work to increase funding for alternatives-to-abortion programs, promote adoption, and ensure that all pregnant women have access to high-quality health care.


McNamara

I certainly like to consider myself as pro-life. For me that means that I am pro-life from inception to resurrection. Life should be treated with respect and dignity throughout all its phases. I support Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act and I will not work to make the law more or less restrictive.

Bigus

Bigus did not respond to our questionnaire. We did, however, steal this info from his web site. We should respect life from the moment of conception until Natural Death.

Haggerty

I am a proud pro-life candidate and have been rated "Pro-Life" by the Pennsylvania Federation for Human Life. I believe in the sanctity of human life and therefore am decidedly against abortion and legislation proposed to make abortions more accessible. I feel other options such as natural family planning and adoption should be utilized to prevent unwanted pregnancies, rather than terminating a living human life form.

Madeira

Abortion, like slavery, is a question first and foremost of human rights. Does one person have the right to take the life of another? Abortion stops a beating human heart and I will work hard to ensure that every PA child is welcomed into the world and afforded the most basic human right – Life.

Sutton

I am Pro-life, with consideration for the health of the mother, incest, or rape.

Comments:
Can someone please translate Ms. Baker's answer for me?
 
Simple. Baker says she's pro-choice, but she has to say she's pro life to get elected.
 
Simple, bill? Are you kidding? Baker's response is non-sensical, circular, even laughable. It's anything but simple, but I think that's her point. By talking in circles, maybe the people who really care about this issue will become so confused, they'll just get tired and go away.

But let's look at Baker's response. She says she does not approve of abortion, presumably a personal decision grounded in her own view of morality. That's some morality, because she supports the PA Abortion Control Act, which allows for abortions. She says the government shouldn't make these decisions, but she wants to become a member of the body that is called upon to do just that.

Gibberish!

Bottom line is this: If Baker truly believes govt. cannot and should not make this decision, then govt. cannot prevent abortion. If govt. cannot prevent abortion, it must by defintion be for abortion. Therefore... follow the logic here... LISA BAKER IS PRO ABORTION.

Now bill, that makes things crystal clear.
