The Republican presidential field thankfully may have thinned, but it’s still chock-full of candidates determined to ban abortion. We know it can be hard to keep track, so as we prepare to suffer through another debate filled with abortion lies and misinformation, here’s a roundup of where the remaining contenders (both on and off stage) stand on abortion. TL;DR: it’s at odds with the American people — 78% of whom say abortion should be between patients and their doctors.  

Some may try to hide the ball, downplay their anti-abortion agenda, or confuse the American people with words like “consensus” and “reasonable” but we know the truth:

Donald Trump:

  • On a national abortion ban said, “We’re going to get it done.” 
  • Proud of “terminatingRoe v. Wade, calling it an honor and bragging that he did more to end abortion rights than anyone else.
  • Supported a national 20-week abortion ban as president.

 

Nikki Haley:

 

Ron DeSantis:

 

Vivek Ramaswamy:

  • Says he’s “open minded” to a national abortion ban and thinks a six-week ban — when most people don’t even know they’re pregnant — is “reasonable.” 
  • Has described abortion as murder saying Roe v. Wade was “wrongly decided.” 
  • Calls for a defunding of Planned Parenthood.

 

Chris Christie: 

  • Worked with an anti-abortion group to coordinate efforts to ban abortion in states across the country. 
  • Supported a national abortion ban and led the defunding of Planned Parenthood and other family planning providers while governor of New Jersey.
