Locals respond to abortion stances of Democratic and Republican nominees

COLUMBUS, Ga.- Locals are weighing in on the abortion stances of the Democratic and GOP presidential nominees.

The “40 Days for life” campaign is a Columbus effort that consists of prayer, fasting and community outreach.

Earlier this year, Clinton said in part, politicians have no business interfering with women’s personal health decisions.

As president, I’ll stand up for Planned Parenthood and women’s access to critical health services, including safe and legal abortion.

Trump has said, “The primary responsibility of the federal government is to protect the rights of its citizens. Life is the most fundamental right. The federal government should not diminish this right by denying its’ protection. I am opposed to abortion except for rape, incest and life of the mother. I oppose the use of government funds to pay for abortions.

I caught up with a CSU student and mother of two who shared her emotional beliefs with me.

“I think that as a woman you should be able to choose regardless of your situation, your circumstance, what you do with your body and that includes abortion. If you want one and you feel like it’s ethically and morally the right decision for you, then you should be able to do so in a safe and healthy environment,” says Rayla Thomsen.

The 40 Days for life protesters share different beliefs from the CSU student.
