Jason Lewis on Abortion

 

 


Pro-life; endorsed by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life

Lewis announced the endorsement of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL). "I am honored to receive the endorsement of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life," Lewis said. "As a former Congressman with a perfect pro-life voting record, I choose to protect life and stand proudly with the people at Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life. In contrast, my opponent Senator Tina Smith, a former Planned Parenthood executive, has embraced abortion on-demand, even after birth."

Allow pro-life state laws under 10th Amendment

Because I am pro-life, I believe that citizens should be able to pass state laws of their choice without federal interference from activist courts. Life begins at conception and I will be an effective pro-life voice in Congress.

The genius of federalism is a system of government that accounts for the diversity of human beings by allowing the states to compete for the governed. Instead, Washington has nationalized the economy (especially healthcare and energy) and usurped the states' ability to settle disputes between citizens of the same state. Activist federal courts have been striking down duly enacted state laws governing abortion, marriage, education--even local transportation and housing. This is backwards and has taken from state legislatures the power of self-government under the 10th Amendment.

Opposes public funding for abortion services.

Lewis opposes the CC survey question on Planned Parenthood

The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Public Funding of Abortions (Such as Govt. Health Benefits and Planned Parenthood)' The Christian Coalition notes, "You can help make sure that voters have the facts BEFORE they cast their votes. We have surveyed candidates in the most competitive congressional races on the issues that are important to conservatives."

Supports pro-life legislation.

Lewis supports the PVS survey question on abortion

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
