Presidential Candidates have different Opinions on Abortion
Leaders in the United States have different opinions on abortion. Three presidential candidates, Hilary Clinton, Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee, have recently addressed the issue in different way.
Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is running for president in 2016, said that it is important to change the deep-seated religious beliefs so that reproductive health care could be provided to a number of women across the world.
On the other side, Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas, decided to stand with the people's faith in God. According to him, abortion is like slaughter of 50 million babies, while United States Senate member Rand Paul said that the debate on the issue is too much focused on the exact details with respect to exceptions. He also talked about the situation in which a woman to have an abortion if her life is in danger.
Top leaders of the country have different opinions on the issue. When people in the US were asked about abortions, they agreed on quite a bit about when and why abortions should be legal. The American National Election Studies (ANES) showed people's opinion on the issue by using a random sample of adult Americans every election year.
About three years ago, ANES asked a typical abortion question: "There has been some discussion about abortion during recent years. Which one of the opinions on this page best agrees with your view?"
It had given four choices. The first choice was by law, abortion should never be permitted. The second choice was abortion should be legal in case of rape, or when a woman's life is in danger. The third option was that abortion should be permitted for reasons other than rape and danger to the woman's life, while fourth choice was that a woman should always be able to obtain an abortion.
The result showed that about 12% Americans think that abortion should never be legal under any circumstance.
