RFK said he supports abortion up to full term in an interview on the Sage Steele Show

In an appearance on the Sage Steele Show on Wednesday, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made clear that he supports the right of women to have an abortion up to the point of birth. He also stated his opposition to allowing the states to have the power to decide abortion law.

“I have been probably one of the leading, arguably one of the leading people in this country for medical freedom and for bodily autonomy,” Kennedy said in the interview.

“I think with abortion, every abortion is a tragedy. Many of them leave permanent trauma on the woman. But I think, ultimately, I don’t trust government to have jurisdiction over people’s bodies. I think we need to leave it to the woman, her pastor and to, you know, her spiritual advisors or physician, whatever, to make those decisions.”

Kennedy played down the number of late-term abortions that actually take place and said that there are usually “extenuating circumstances” in such cases.

He said that although there’s a “compelling argument” that the state “has an interest in protecting a fully-formed fetus,” he simply doesn’t “trust the state.”

“I think we need to trust the woman and I don’t think that that’s a satisfactory outcome, because there’s always gonna be instances where bad things happen.

When Steele pressed RFK Jr. on his anti-state stance on abortion and asked if that meant women should have the choice “even if it’s full term,” heresponded in the affirmative.

“Even if it’s full term.”

“I think we have to leave it to the woman, not the state. I think we should do everything in our power to make sure that never happens and everything that we can do.

“But I think, ultimately, you know, nobody sets out to do that. And there are always some kind of extenuating circumstances that would make a mother make that kind of choice, a terrible, terrible choice which is, you know, you can’t overstate how bad that is. And I think, ultimately, we have to trust women.”

RFK Jr. has been forced to clarify his position on abortion after it was reported last year that he was in favour of limiting abortions to either 15 or 21 weeks of pregnancy. His campaign released a statement that he “does not support legislation banning abortion.”
