Mike Rounds on Abortion

Republican SD Governor

Abortion is wrong; reconsider Roe v. Wade

On Referred Law #6 HB 1215 Anti-Abortion “Personally, I will vote YES to implement this law because I believe abortion is wrong. This law needs to pass so that Roe v. Wade can be reconsidered by the United States Supreme Court. We’ve had 33 years of more information and more advances in medicine. It’s time to reconsider this interpretation of the Constitution, just like the court has done before on other very important issues.”

Protect life under all circumstances; no embryo research

Some have raised questions regarding the appropriateness of abortion under certain circumstances: rape, incest, to preserve the life of the mother. To these questions I can only respond that taking the life of an innocent child is not the solution. Likewise, many will raise the issue of using human embryos for medical research. Another phrase for human embryo is human person, and again I must say that taking the life of a child is not the solution.
