Bob Kerrey on Abortion
Former Democratic Senator (NE)
"I am pro-life," Fischer declared. She said the only exception she approves of is the life of the mother. She did not include exceptions for incest or rape. Fischer distanced herself from Missouri's Todd Akin's controversial comments about women's bodies being able to reject pregnancy as a result of rape.
FISCHER: I am pro-life and I believe in the sanctity of life. I do believe there should be an exception for the life of the mother.
