Asa Hutchinson on Abortion

Former Administrator of D.E.A.; former Republican Representative (AR-3)


Americans want to restrict abortion with right exceptions

Now, that's a debate we're going to have as a country. But the fact is that, unless we have supermajorities in each of the houses, we're going to keep this issue in the states. I have said and I believe the American people are supportive of restrictions on abortion with the right exceptions in there. And that's why I have advocated for rape, incest, life of the mother. This is where I think the American people are. And it's a debate that's going to take place in both places.

Have to do better in child birth care and adoption services

I think it's important that we restrict abortions to save the lives of the unborn. I do think there has to be reasonable exceptions such as the life of the mother, and in cases of rape and incest. I think there's broad agreement in America on that. And we also have to make sure that we provide for the maternal care. We have to do better in our child birth care and adoption services.

It's Arkansas policy that we protect the life of the unborn

In Arkansas it's a policy of Arkansas that we protect the life of the unborn. And so, yes, if Roe versus Wade is reversed, then we would have the trigger law in place to protect the life of the unborn. I believe that we want to increase the services for maternal health, to increase the services for adoption services as well. And so we want to invest those areas that will help those women with very difficult circumstances of the pregnancy.

Now we're the number one pro-life state in the nation

In each session, each general session while I have been governor, we have also supported children suffering from abuse, increased our support for foster children, and we have passed prolife legislation. And now we're the number one pro-life state in the nation.
