Tom Steyer on Abortion

Democratic Presidential Challenger; CEO

 


Supports Roe v. Wade's right to privacy

Abortion: Steyer is emphatically pro-abortion. Steyer has a very thin public record of commenting on legal and judicial issues. He also supports Roe v. Wade, thus indicating a belief in the so-called constitutional "right to privacy" and "right to abortion."

Pro-choice, & only work for pro-choice candidates

Social issues: Protect a woman's right to abortion, and enact gun control legislation. Steyer is pro-choice, and made a point of saying so at the Netroots Nation conference in 2017, when he vowed his NextGen America group would not "work for a single candidate who is not pro-choice."

Pro-choice is a litmus test for all support

Democratic donor and activist Tom Steyer says he won't support pro-life candidates in the 2018 elections. "We're pro-choice," the hedge fund manager told Politico during the leftwing Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta over the weekend. "We do not work for a single candidate who is not pro-choice," he added. "I think people like to have litmus tests. We are explicitly pro-choice. We work a lot with Planned Parenthood, we work a lot with NARAL. We are absolutely committed to it."
