(TargetLiberty.org) – GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley has been pushing for more “consensus” on the abortion issue, arguing that the Republicans still had a long road ahead of them before they were able to place a federal ban on abortion.
While speaking with Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday,” Haley argued that it was important for them to “humanize” rather than demonize the situation. She also argued that in order for a federal law to be established they will need to get the approval of 60 Senators, and currently 45 senators are anti-abortion.
Bream was quick to ask Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, whether she would sign a 15-week ban on abortion if she wins the presidential election. To this Haley responded that the GOP needed to agree on what policies they would promote regarding abortion so that they could reach the 60 Senate votes necessary in order for the ban to pass.
She noted that there should be a general consensus on late-term abortions being banned and on doctors being allowed to not perform the procedure if they are anti-abortion. She also points out that state laws should ensure that women should not go to jail for having an abortion and that instead the focus should be on having more access to contraceptives and promoting adoption across the country.
Haley further stated that it was important that they looked at this situation from the angle of how it would be possible for them to support as many mothers and babies as possible, as this would be the only way they would be able to reach those 60 votes.
