On Wednesday, Republican Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz was grilled by Fox News “Primetime” host Will Cain on Wednesday on issues that matter most to conservative voters, including guns and abortion.
“As a senator, how would you vote” regarding abortion, Cain asked. “What do you think the laws should be on abortion?”
“I’m pro-life,” Dr. Oz said. “I do believe in three exceptions, the health for the mother being the primary one, but rape and incest as well. And I would vote to ensure that if the judiciary is reviewing an abortion law that they follow the Constitution, it’s quite clear. That Alabama case is in point did not include those exceptions.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“But, Dr. Oz, that’s currently being debated at the Supreme Court. So, setting aside the exceptions, which I appreciate, what about, what is your position as both a doctor and a senatorial candidate on when life begins?” Cain asked. “When should we draw the line when abortion is it legal?”
“As a doctor, I appreciate the sanctity of life,” Dr. Oz responded. “And for that reason, I’m strongly pro-life with the three exceptions I’ve mentioned. That’s how I would vote.”
“And when does that life begin?” Cain asked.
“You know, I get it. If I’m pro life, then that’s a decision that comes back to the sanctity of when you think life does begin,” Dr. Oz responded. “And I believe it begins when you’re in the mother’s womb.”
“When you’re in the mother’s womb?” Cain asked. “But that that carries you all the way up to nine months of pregnancy.”
“No, of course not,” Dr. Oz claimed. “Life’s already started when you’re in your mother’s womb. It’s a rathole to get trapped into different ways of talking about it. We need as a nation to make sure the Constitution is appropriately followed. And people like me and you may be in the same camp, who are pro life, have our feelings respected. And this is something that should not be taken away from us by judiciary legislating from the bench.”
