Eric Holcomb on Abortion

 

 


Banned abortion after 13 weeks with exceptions

Q: Keep abortion legal or ban?

Eric Holcomb: Ban. Signed bill prohibiting abortion procedure used after 13 weeks except when a woman's health would otherwise be at risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment.

Woody Myers: Legal. "Will fully support a woman's right to make choices about their reproductive lives." Will "protect Planned Parenthood's health services."

Planned Parenthood videos were despicable, but no shutdown

Eric Holcomb called the Planned Parenthood videos "beyond the pale" and explained last week, "Anyone who has seen the videos, even one of the videos, comes to the conclusion that this is despicable behavior."

But Holcomb stops short of taking the route of futility. "The one thing different about me from them is I'm not in Congress," Holcomb said of his two primary opponents. "They have to make their own decisions, but I hope we don't shut the government down. The more I hear from the general public, they are sour on the constant talk of a shutdown and the dysfunction in Washington. That ought not be our strategy."

He cites "other possibilities," though does not specify ways to achieve the defunding, short of electing a Republican president in 2016.
