As President, Nikki Haley Would Ban Abortion
India-West News Desk
WASHINGTON, DC – Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has for the first time openly taken a position on abortion and even then, hedged her bets. On May 24, the media reported, she said she would sign a federal abortion ban into law if she were president, but… said it was unlikely to happen as there weren’t enough Republican members of Congress to pass it.
The Hill reported that she said, “No one has been honest” about how difficult a ban would be to achieve, while speaking in Manchester, N.H. “It would take a majority of the House, 60 senators and a president to sign it,” she said. “We haven’t had 60 Republican senators in 100 years.”
Haley also threw her support for the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which had secured abortion rights on a federal level. “Now it’s back in the states where it belongs,” The Hill reported she said on May 24.
