Wayne Messam on Abortion

FL Mayor; Democratic Presidential Challenger

 


Trust women to make their own decisions; period

Campaign advisers for Messam, the mayor of Miramar, Florida, said the candidate is in favor of allowing federal dollars to be used to provide abortions. On Messam's campaign website, women's health is the issue area with the shortest description. It includes a single sentence: "I trust women to make their own decisions when it comes to their health. Period."

Abortion issue demagogued, should be left to the mother

"It should be left to the mother. I think there's a misnomer in terms of the prevalence of 'late-term abortions' when over 90 percent of abortions take place within the first 21 weeks. I think when a woman is forced with a tough decision to abort a pregnancy, it's tough enough by itself to have to make such a personal decision. Right now in our country this issue has been demagogued, and I think that primarily us men are making the decisions in the laws."
