Mehmet Oz: Democracy includes 'local political leaders' getting involved with abortions
Mehmet Oz, the Republican nominee for a U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania, said during Tuesday night’s debate against Democrat John Fetterman, that he believes abortion should be between a woman, her doctor, and “local political leaders,” as a part of democracy.
“There should not be involvement from the federal government in how states decide their abortion decisions,” Oz said, despite refusing to say earlier if he would support Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s 15-week nationwide abortion ban legislation.
“As a physician, I’ve been in the room when there’s some difficult conversations happening. I don’t want the federal government involved with that at all.”
“I want women, doctors, local political leaders, leading the democracy that’s always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward so states can decide for themselves,” Oz declared.
Oz and Fetterman are battling for a seat in Washington, D.C.that likely will decide control of the entire U.S. Senate.
