Nick Carter on Abortion

Democratic Senate Challenger


Abortion should be legal, safe, protected and rare

Q: Do you support abortion as a woman's right?

A: I believe that abortion should be legal, safe, protected and hopefully rare with proper education and access to birth control. Although raised Catholic, I have 5 sisters & a grown daughter and I cannot imagine giving the government the authority to make a decision that should be between a woman and her doctor. A government with that type of authority would quickly devolve into a tyrannical state that even the most fervent abortion foes would lament.

Demand end to stem cell research as political football

Stem cell research is the most promising development for the future of health care in decades. We must allow scientists to explore this area unimpeded by dogma.

My brother-in-law has Parkinsons--a disease where stem cell research might have a life- changing impact. Watching his condition deteriorate while our leaders play politics with this issue is heartbreaking.

I will work to bring modern scientific views into the discussion & demand an end to using stem cell research as a political football.
