Stacey Abrams believes that the option to terminate a pregnancy should be treated as a “medical decision” rather than a political one.
Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor of Georgia, responded on Sunday that “medical decisions” should not be politicized when she was asked if restrictions should be placed on abortions or if she supported abortions up to nine months of pregnancy.
In light of the decision made by the Supreme Court on Friday to overturn Roe v. Wade, Abrams was questioned about her perspectives on abortion while she was being interviewed.
“When it comes to one’s own body and one’s health, I believe that abortion should be a matter of personal choice. In addition, I believe that a doctor and a patient, along with the patient’s family members, ought to be the ones to make that decision “The statement was made by Abrams. “I think we have a dilemma on our hands because we keep framing this issue in terms of its political significance. There are very important medical issues to take into account here. And any medical decisions that are made ought to be guided by what is in that woman’s best interests. And what would the best advice be from their doctor?”
Reporters on Sunday,” continued their investigation into the health and well-being of Abrams’ which prompted the Democratic candidate to criticize the Republican governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, saying that Kemp “refused to extend Medicaid in the state of Georgia.” The reporter’s questions prompted Abrams to make her statement.
