Kevin Stitt on Abortion
Ban abortions except rape, incest or to save life of mother
Stitt said he would sign legislation banning or restricting abortion, even if it would violate abortion rights granted by the US Supreme Court in two major decisions. Stitt says he would sign every piece of anti-abortion legislation that came to him.
Stitt responded at the forum, "No I wouldn't sign that. I believe that life begins at conception and I am going to protect life every single day that I'm governor." Asked last week what he meant by his response, Stitt said he may have misunderstood
the question. "From the very beginning, I've said that I'm pro-life and I am going to sign legislation that hits my desk to protect life," Stitt said in an interview. "So I will continue to say that."
At an earlier forum, Stitt said that he would only
appoint justices to the Oklahoma Supreme Court that shared his views on abortion. "So as governor, I will make sure we get pro-life justices on the Oklahoma Supreme Court and then I'll sign every piece of pro-life legislation that hits my desk," he said.
