Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore: I’ll Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood and Overturn Roe v. Wade

Pro-life voters in Alabama have two Senate candidates who couldn’t be further apart on abortion. Conservative Republican senate candidate Roy Moore is on the pro-life side, while Democrat Doug Jones holds some radical positions on abortion and other issues that are out of touch with most voters.

Moore highlighted his pro-life views yesterday.

“As far as abortion, I will not fund Planned Parenthood. And I will work to overturn Roe v. Wade. In my opinion, Roe v. Wade is not fixed precedent, it’s an unconstitutional decision just like Dred Scott was in 1857,” Moore said during a rally Monday in Hengar.

KTSA reports Moore described the killing of unborn babies in abortions and other issues as the “immorality of our time.”

Breitbart reports more from the rally:

“Between me and my opponent, there are vast differences which the people of the state need to know,” Moore stated. “I voted for Donald Trump. I voted for Jeff Sessions. He opposes President Trump’s agenda and has publicly stated he would not have voted for Jeff Sessions.”

Moore called for the repeal of Obamacare, which he criticized as “a bad healthcare system.”

… The Republican senatorial candidate strongly opposes abortion. He said that he would work to prevent government funding for Planned Parenthood and to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in the United States, aborting more than 320,000 unborn babies each year while receiving hundreds of millions of tax dollars. There are signs that the FBI currently may be investigating whether Planned Parenthood broke the law by selling aborted baby body parts.

Jones consistently has supported Planned Parenthood, the top abortion business in the United States, on the campaign trail, Newsbusters reports.

Jones’ support for abortion goes beyond Planned Parenthood. He told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that he would not support any restrictions on abortion, if elected. Specifically, he said he opposes a ban on abortion after 20 weeks when strong scientific evidence indicates unborn babies can feel pain.

TODD: So you wouldn’t be in favor of legislation that said, ban abortion after 20 weeks or something like that?

JONES: I’m not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman’s right and her freedom to choose.

Jones used the same line that abortion activists have been using lately to support late-term abortions on viable, healthy unborn babies. They use it to fight against bans on sex-selection abortions and abortions on unborn babies with disabilities like Down syndrome.

The special election to fill the Alabama senate seat is Dec. 12.
