Washington, D.C.  – Mark Kelly is outside of the mainstream on abortion. He cosponsored and voted for a bill that would legalize taxpayer-funded abortion up until the moment of birth. Kelly’s Women’s Health Protection Act goes well beyond Roe vs. Wade. It would gut conscious and religious exemption protections and override state laws that require parental consent before a minor can get an abortion. 

poll conducted by the NRSC found that Kelly’s abortion bill is too extreme for the overwhelming majority of Americans. 

  • 54% of voters believe that abortion should always be illegal or be illegal except in the case of rape, incest, or a threat to the mother’s life while 41% believe that abortion should always be legal.
  • 73% of voters agree that an unborn baby is a human being.
  • 65% of voters agree that taxpayer money should not be used to pay for abortions.
  • Only 30% of voters agree that America should allow abortion at any time, on demand, and without apology while 61% disagree.
  • 53% of voters would be more likely to vote for a Republican candidate who supports reasonable restrictions on abortion versus 28% of voters who would be more likely to support a Democrat candidate who supports unlimited abortion up until the moment of birth.
  • 62% of voters agree that it is wrong to allow abortions after 15 weeks when unborn babies can suck their thumb and feel pain while 30% disagree.
  • 55% of voters believe the Supreme Court should allow states to ban late-term abortions, while 35% disagree.

Statement from NRSC Chairman Rick Scott: “Mark Kelly’s extreme abortion-on-demand bill allows taxpayer-funded abortion up until the moment of birth. He should focus on securing the border and lowering prices instead of forcing taxpayers to fund abortions at home and abroad.”
