Jack Hoogendyk on Abortion

Republican Senate challenger


Abortion is the termination of a human life

Q: Do you support or oppose the policy: "Abortion is a woman's right"?

A: Do not support. Abortion is the termination of a human life. We need to protect the constitutional right to life of all americans, regardless of age.

Constitutionally guaranteed right to life from conception

I believe that all humans have constitutionally guaranteed right to life. This right extends from the time of conception to the time of natural death.

Supports adult stem cell research but not embryonic research

I am a proponent of stem cell research. But I draw a distinction between embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) and adult stem cell research. Embryonic is impractical because of problems with rejection and, to date, a failure to produce any cures. ESCR also requires the destruction of a human embryo, which is human life in its smallest form. Adult stem cell research has produced over 70 cures and continues to show great promise and progress. I oppose ESCR and strongly support Adult stem cell research.
