Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson continues to be a strong voice for the unborn on the campaign trail.

In a new interview with Breitbart News, the former neurosurgeon explained how he would work to restore a culture of life in the United States if elected president.

According the conservative news site:

He calls abortion “The Literal Enemy of Our Children” – at least, that’s how Dr. Carson began talking about the issue of life in his latest book: “A More Perfect Union, What We the People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties.”

“Financial stability and education will do our children no good if they are not alive to experience them,” Carson wrote in his latest New York Times best-seller.

When asked what he would do as U.S. president to support the Constitutional rights of the unborn, Dr. Carson said, “First of all, I would use the bully pulpit to talk about the culture of life.”

Dr. Carson also said that he would appoint judges and justices with records that include rulings that were in favor of protecting the unborn.

Carson sprang to number one in national polls this week – even as abortion advocates try to attack him for defending the rights of the unborn without exceptions.



Last week, Carson revealed his strong pro-life position on abortions in cases of rape or incest, reported.

“Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way,” Carson told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And all you have to do is go and look up the many stories of people who have led very useful lives who were the result of rape or incest.”

Carson he also compared the human rights abuse of abortion to that of slavery.

“Think about this. During slavery– and I know that’s one of those words you’re not supposed to say, but I’m saying it,” Carson said. “During slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought that they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave. Anything that they chose to do. And, you know, what if the abolitionist had said, you know, ‘I don’t believe in slavery. I think it’s wrong. But you guys do whatever you want to do?’ Where would we be?”

The Republican presidential candidate also said he supports repealing Roe v. Wade. He also has been very vocal about his opposition to Obamacare.

As LifeNews previously reported, Dr. Carson is a retired brain surgeon who has written eight books including a few New York Times best sellers about his work in medicine.
