Ben Carson Suggests Monica Wehby Only Supports Abortion Rights In Order To Win Votes
In an apparent effort to bolster the conservative credentials of embattled Oregon GOP U.S. Senate nominee Monica Wehby yesterday, Ben Carson implied that she only supports abortion rights in order to win votes.
Wehby has campaigned as a candidate who is “personally pro-life” but supports a woman’s right to choose, a view held by many in the pro-choice community.
Carson suggested in an interview with Steve Malzberg of Newsmax TV that Wehby only took a pro-choice stance in order to help her stay competitive in her race to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley. Carson, who has endorsed Wehby, said that she is only running as a pro-choice candidate because she’s a “savvy” and “pragmatic” politician who is “personally pro-life” but “knows there’s no way you’re going to win in Oregon with that stance.”
When Malzberg asked if he was “saying she’s lying or compromising her values,” Carson denied suggesting that Wehby was taking a politically-calculated stance on abortion rights.
