Rick Becker on Abortion
Government's responsibility to protect human life
One of the sharper exchanges came over the issue of abortion. Candidates were asked if they would've signed the multiple pieces of abortion legislation signed by Gov. Dalrymple in 2013, some of which have been litigated in court and defended by
Stenehjem's office since then.
Becker said he was pro-life and that it's the government's responsibility to protect human life. Stehehjem said he'd have signed the legislation and is pro-life. He also recognizes exceptions for rape and incest.
