Nikki Haley Calls for 'Humanizing' Abortion Debate
August 24, 2023: Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, a Republican presidential candidate, said on Tuesday that she is “unapologetically pro-life” but wants to “humanize” the abortion debate.
Haley said that she believes that abortion is wrong but also understands that women make difficult choices when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. She said she wants to focus on supporting women and families, not punishing them.
“Let’s humanize the issue,” Haley said. “Let’s talk about the women who are facing these difficult choices. Let’s talk about the families who are affected by abortion.”
Haley’s comments come as the Supreme Court is considering a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it would be up to each state to decide whether or not to allow abortion.
Haley’s stance on abortion is in line with the majority of Republicans, who are opposed to abortion. However, her call to “humanize” the debate departs from some Republican politicians, who have taken a more harsh stance on the issue.
It remains to be seen how Haley’s stance on abortion will play out in the 2024 presidential election. The issue will likely be a major one in the campaign, and Haley’s approach could appeal to some voters while alienating others.
