Russ Fulcher on Abortion

 

 


Life begins at conception; adoption instead of abortion

Q: Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

A: Strongly Agree

Q: Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

A: Strongly Agree

Q: Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

A: None. I believe that we should help the mother during pregnancy, and the mother and her child after pregnancy. I work with pro-life women's health centers to ensure that happens. I also believe that, if absolutely necessary, we should default to adoption to prevent abortion.

Require parental consent for underage abortions

Legislative Summary: S 1082: Parental Consent for Underage Abortions: Amending section 9-340g, Idaho code [section removed on minor consent]: regarding judicial authorization of a minor's consent to an abortion or the performance of abortion procedures upon a minor who would otherwise have to obtain consent for the procedure from a parent or guardian, in addition to records of any judicial proceedings filed.

OnTheIssues Interpretation: Prior law allowed for a minor to petition a court for judicial authorization for an abortion, without parental consent. This new law removes that clause, meaning that minors must get parental consent for an abortion.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 23-12-0 on Feb. 26; Sen. Russ Fulcher voted AYE; passed House 53-14-3 on March 16; signed by Gov. Otter on March 27.

Pro-life, according to PVS survey.

Fulcher opposes the PVS survey question on abortion rights

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."

Sponsored bill to protect infant survivors of abortion.

Fulcher co-sponsored Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

S.311/H.R.962: Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act: Congress finds the following:

Opposing argument from Rewire.com, "Born Alive Propaganda," by Calla Hales, 4/12/2019: From restrictive bans at various points of pregnancy to a proposed death penalty for seeking care, both federal and state legislators are taking aim at abortion rights. The goal? To make abortion illegal, criminalizing patients and providers in the process. One kind of bill making a recent resurgence is the "Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act." These bills aim to further the false narrative that abortions regularly occur immediately before or, according to the president, at the time of birth. Intentional action to end the life of an infant is already illegal. This is covered by federal and state infanticide laws. These bills do nothing but vilify physicians who provide reproductive health care.

Legislative outcome Referred to Committee in House; Senate motion to proceed rejected, 56-41-3 (60 required).
