Non è tra quelli che hanno fatto della battaglia contro la legalizzazione dell’aborto un punto della loro campagna politica, additando la Roe vs Wade (1973) come il primo ostacolo da rimuovere.
Rudolph W. Giuliani (In S. Carolina, Giuliani asserts personal, political abortion stances, Baltimore Sun, 6 aprile 2007)
campaigning in South Carolina, firmly stated that as president he would not seek to make abortion illegal.Non piacerà la posizione di Giuliani agli antiabortisti, soprattutto in un Paese tanto conservatore come il South Carolina.
Aware of the damage his position might do to him among some conservative voters, Giuliani said that if someone was inclined to vote against him solely because of his stance on abortion, then so be it.
“I think abortion is wrong,” he said. “But ultimately, I think it is a woman’s right, a woman’s choice. And government should not interfere with it by imposing criminal penalties on people.”
Giuliani, a Roman Catholic who once considered joining the priesthood, has wrestled with the abortion question for years, often expressing his personal opposition. But he has also long supported keeping abortion legal.
