Tim Scott: GOP Candidates Must Protect Life, Debate Stage Opportunity For Contrast On The Issue
ANAHEIM, CA – Today, Tim Scott joined FOX News’ Neil Cavuto to discuss his debate performance from earlier this week and reaffirm his commitment to protecting life. Earlier this week, Tim won the GOP presidential debate and was able to get other candidates to clarify their positions on life.
Tim Scott: Well, the debate stage is where we have an opportunity to lay out our vision for our future in this nation. The debate stage is a place where, just this last debate, I asked a question about the 15-week limit and Ron changed his position. He said he would now support a 15-week limit. That’s, frankly, a good position to take. I wish we had more candidates, Vivek and Nikki, please join the 15-week limit. Let’s stop radical states like California, Illinois, and New York from having abortion on demand.
Neil Cavuto: In other words don’t go to smaller, more limited. No, I wanna be clear. You don’t believe it should be at six weeks or any smaller period than that. To go around that 15-week period was the wise route?
Tim Scott: Yeah, so the states have the opportunity to preserve life at a lower level. Nationally, we should have a 15-week limit to stop the radical states from having abortion up until the day of birth.
