Kari Lake on Abortion



Does not support a federal ban, issue for states to decide

Kari wants to do everything she can to help women choose life, to choose to bring that blessing into their own existence. She also recognizes that a majority of people hold the view that abortion should be legal with restrictions against late-term and partial-birth abortions. Arizona's law currently allows abortions up to 15 weeks, and Kari does not support a federal ban on abortion. Abortion is, as the courts decided, an issue for states to decide, not the federal government.

We're not giving women choices, they're given one choice

LAKE: In Katie Hobbs' world, they're for abortion right up until birth, if you are in the hospital in labor, the abortionists are for giving you an abortion, If you desire one. This has moved beyond health care. We're not giving women choices. I'm for giving women true choices. And when they walk into an abortion center, they're only given one choice. And they're not told that you have the choice to keep your baby, and we can help and here's how.

KATIE HOBBS: Kari Lake is entirely misconstruing my position on this issue. Late-term abortion is extremely rare. If it's being talked about, it's because something has gone incredibly wrong in a pregnancy. A doctor's not going to perform an abortion late in a pregnancy just because somebody decided they want one. That is ridiculous. Under a Kari Lake administration, we would have government-mandated forced births that risk women's lives.
