Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Does Not Support Any Federal Ban On Abortion, Team Says He “Misunderstood” Question

 August 15, 2023

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who spent the weekend campaigning in Iowa, apparently mistakenly said in an interview, that he would support a ban on abortions on pregnancies three months or later if elected. His statements were made during an interview at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday, according to CBS News.

Kennedy’s team later clarified the candidate's statement, who himself claimed he misunderstood the question. The Democratic presidential candidate said-

-"I believe a decision to abort a child should be up to the women during the first three months of life," …"Once a child is viable outside the womb, I think then the state has an interest in protecting the child,"…adding… "I’m for medical freedom. Individuals are able to make their own choices."

-Democratic Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Kennedy's team issued a statement, on Sunday evening, clarifying the candidate's position on abortion.  The statement read-

"Today, Mr. Kennedy misunderstood a question posed to him by an NBC reporter in a crowded, noisy exhibit hall at the Iowa State Fair," …"Mr. Kennedy's position on abortion is that it is always the woman's right to choose. He does not support legislation banning abortion."

Kennedy, an environmental lawyer, is a long-shot for winning the Democratic Party’s support as the top pick to run for president. The DNC has no plans for any primary debates between Biden and his two nationally known challengers.

This is especially true since the DNC is fully backing Biden, as the president campaigns for a second four-year term in the White House. At its winter meeting in February, it unanimously passed a resolution to commit its "full and complete support" for the reelection of Biden and Harris.
