Robert Bentley on Abortion

 

 


Do everything to protect those who cannot protect themselves

I will always firmly uphold these Truths which are self-evident, that all men are created equal. That all are given, by their Creator, the Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The most vulnerable, the most helpless, the most abused & the most oppressed. The elderly, the ill--and especially the unborn--everyone has been endowed with the Right to a Life. I will do everything as Governor to protect those who cannot protect themselves, and protect our Freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

Right to Life applies to most vulnerable & most helpless

When I took the Oath of Office, I swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Alabama. I am, and have always been, a strong supporter of the Constitution on which our nation and our states were founded. The 10th Amendment, which guarantees those powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, or to the people.

I will always firmly uphold these Truths which are self-evident, that all men are created equal. That all are given, by their Creator, the Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The most vulnerable, the most helpless, the most abused & the most oppressed. The elderly, the ill--and especially the unborn--everyone has been endowed with the Right to a Life. I will do everything as Governor to protect those who cannot protect themselves, and protect our Freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

Abortion only when mother's life is in danger

Abortion is a fundamental assault on the sanctity of innocent human life. I will ensure that abortion in Alabama is limited only to cases in which the mother's life is in danger. I will oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion. As Governor, I will protect young girls from exploitation and statutory rape by requiring parental notification before a minor may obtain an abortion.
