Abortion: As President, my only impact on the issue of abortion is my appointment of a Supreme Court Justice. Please keep in mind that Roe v. Wade was a 7-2 decision.
Some voters may view this one issue as their litmus test of a candidate. When I am elected, I plan on looking at Supreme Court Justices from places like United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. I will consult with people like Martha Minow and Deborah H. Bell. I may also consult with others like John Grisham, Southern Poverty Law Center and Paulette Brown.
I have my own views on abortion, but any judge I choose will have to be confirmed by the Senate. I also have other views of importance for my first appointment. I want a judge willing to look into reversing Citizens United v. FEC. In my opinion, that decision created a terrible environment for our democratic process.
I promise YOU I will work diligently to find a Supreme Court Justice that will be a great addition to the bench.
