National Right to Life has researched the abortion positions of the 23 likely presidential candidates, prepared a downloadable flyer and posted it online for your use.
The comparison considered the candidates’ positions on the following issues:
· Roe v. Wade/Abortion (The 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decisions legalized abortion on demand throughout the United States, resulting in more than 57 million abortions since then.)
· Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. (S.1553, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would prohibit abortions, with narrow exceptions, at a point that the unborn child is capable of feeling pain from abortion.)
· Government Funding for Abortion Providers. (S.1881 would end all federal funding of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. The money would be given instead to women’s health service providers.)
All of the Democratic candidates support a policy which allows abortion on demand for any reason. Virtually all of the Republican candidates support protection for unborn children, and oppose abortion on demand.
One of the 23 individuals listed is likely to be elected President in 2016. The comparison of the 2016 presidential candidates’ positions on the issue of abortion is in alphabetical order.
