Katie Hobbs has made it clear that unborn children will be the most at-risk Arizonians if she is elected governor. During an interview with a local CBS affiliate, the gubernatorial nominee refused to say where she draws the line on abortion. That’s because she doesn’t draw the line.
In February, Arizona lawmakers passed a ban on abortions after 15 weeks. But this will likely change if Hobbs becomes governor, as she indicated that there should be no legal limits on abortions in a recent interview.
“Abortion is health care,” she responded to a journalist’s question of at what gestational age it should be legal to dismember a live preborn human. Asked again after she failed to support a limit on this practice, Hobbs replied, “Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her family and her doctor, and that’s something that needs to be discussed in the medical exam room, not by politicians.”
Hobbs is correct. These decisions should not be made by politicians like her, whose track record on abortion is nothing short of barbaric. Late-term abortions include abortions after 20 weeks –when the child is approximately five months of age, at which time the baby’s facial features are developing and unborn babies can hear their mother’s heartbeat.
In 2011, Hobbs voted against banning sex- and racially discriminatory abortions. Her vote condoned the murder of unborn girls and countless minority children, including black babies, who are the biggest victims of abortion.
In addition to supporting the murder of unborn daughters and minority children, Hobbs voted for forcing taxpayers to fund abortion, a position the majority of Americans oppose.
Perhaps the most appalling of Hobbs’ abortion advocacy was her vote against requiring doctors to try to revive babies who survive abortions.
Hobbs is not the only Democrat politician who feels free to publicly express abortion extremism out of step with the majority of voters. Former Virginia governor Ralph Northam sent shivers down America’s spine with his comments on post-birth “abortions” in 2019.
“The infant would be delivered,” said Northham. “The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
