Joe Miller on Abortion

 


Don't talk about exceptions; talk about life

At a GOP debate Monday, Messrs. Treadwell, Sullivan and Miller each labeled themselves as pro-life candidates--although with varying exceptions. Sullivan would keep abortion legal in the case of rape, incest and to protect the mother's life. Treadwell would allow the procedure to protect the mother's life. And Miller said he would allow no exceptions.

"I don't think we ought to be talking about exceptions, we ought to be talking about life," Miller said at the debate, held in an evangelical church in Eagle River. "Why are we going to punish the sons and daughters for the father's sins? That's what we do for the rape and incest exception."

Miller's supporters distributed news clippings that in 2012 Treadwell blocked a measure that would have allowed a statewide referendum to outlaw abortion.

The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Prohibiting human embryonic stem cell research". [Supporting this statement means the candidate would ban such research; opposing it means the candidate would allow such research].
