Rand Paul Gives Unclear Message On Abortion

Associated Press

Senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul was asked on by Associated Press reporter Philip Elliot on Wednesday to clarify his position on abortion legislation. ┬áSome called his response to Elliot “testy.”

According to the AP, Paul – a newly-declared presidential candidate – is “dodging a central question about abortion: What exceptions, if any, should be made if the procedure were to be banned?”

During the interview, Paul would not say if his opposition to abortion rights includes an exception in cases of rape, incest or risk to the life of the mother.
