Sarah Steelman on Abortion

 


Life begins at conception; consider Constitutional Amendment

Asked whether the candidates supported a constitutional amendment saying life begins at conception, Akin staked out the strongest stance. "Yes, I would support a constitutional amendment," he said.

Brunner and Steelman both said they would want to look at the wording of a proposed amendment before endorsing it while still trying to portray a strong anti-abortion stance, with Steelman saying she does believe life begins at conception and Brunner pledging support to the overthrow of Roe v. Wade.

Protect those who can't protect themselves, including unborn

Sarah believes that government's main role is to protect those that cannot protect themselves. This is no truer than in the case of the unborn. Sarah is wholly and 100% pro-life and will vote 100% pro-life in the US Senate. Roe v. Wade was a wrongly decided Supreme Court case that undermined the Constitution in the name of a liberal policy agenda. In the US Senate, Sarah will fight to end, once and for all, the practice of partial-birth abortion.

Opposes embryonic stem cell research

Q: Would you protect embryonic stem cell research or would you work to repeal Amendment 2?

A: I do not support embryonic stem cell research. I did not support Amendment 2 and I would work to repeal it. It's not a good piece of legislation to have in our constitution and it prevents us from doing any kind of stem cell research because every time you get money you have to do both, embryonic and adult or other stem cell research that may not have anything to do with embryonic stem cell research.
