Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says he would support federal ban on abortions beyond 3 months: report

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday that he would sign a ban on abortions after three months, if elected.

Robert F. Kennedy, who spent the weekend campaigning in Iowa, said in an interview he would support a ban on abortions on pregnancies three months or later if elected, according to reports.

NBC reported that Kennedy made the statement during an interview at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday.

“I believe a decision to abort a child should be up to the women during the first three months of life,” the Democratic presidential candidate said.


When asked if it meant he would sign a ban at 15 or 21 weeks, he said yes.

“Once a child is viable outside the womb, I think then the state has an interest in protecting the child,” Kennedy added. “I’m for medical freedom. Individuals are able to make their own choices.”

President Biden’s challenger’s stance on abortion went to the beat of a different drum from most of the Democratic Party. The Supreme Court, on June 24, 2022, overturned Roe v. Wade, overturning the longstanding constitutional right to abortion access that had been established. 

During the interview, Kennedy said he would not have voted in support of the Inflation Reduction Act, which is considered a major win for the Democratic Party.

Kennedy, an environmental lawyer, high-profile vaccine critic, and scion of arguably the nation’s most famous family political dynasty, is a long-shot for winning the Democratic Party’s support as the top pick to run for president.

In fact, the DNC is fully backing Biden as the president campaigns for a second four-year term in the White House, and 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

Kennedy Jr., the environmental lawyer and high-profile vaccine critic who’s a scion of arguably the nation’s most famous family political dynasty.
