Rand Knight on Abortion

Democrat Challenger


Fully˙fund embryonic stem cell research

As a US Senator I will never stop working to persuade other Senators and the Administration to fully˙fund embryonic stem cell research. I will push hard for legislation that˙makes the most use˙of existing embryos that˙are˙slated for disposal. If necessary, I will attach stem cell legislation to a must-pass bill, or I will hold hearings featuring patients that might have a chance to live with stem cell research, and they can speak directly to the ignorance and arrogance of research opponents.

Keep politicians out of women's personal decisions

We need to keep politicians and government out of women's personal decisions about whether or not to have an abortion, which should be made by a woman, her doctor, her family, and her God. We also need to be more actively involved in preventing unintended pregnancies and reducing the need for abortions by increasing access to family planning and comprehensive age appropriate sex education. I believe in a woman's right to choose, plain and simple. It's not my body and it's not my business.
