Carly Fiorina, who is anti-abortion, is asked to delve into the abortion debate.
‘I understand that not all women agree with me,’ Fiorina said, but she also tried to change the direction of the conversation: ‘The subject of this election is not abortion,’ but rather jobs and the economy.
Fiorina said she wouldn’t have a litmus test for Supreme Court candidates to be anti-abortion, if she were in the Senate. She also said she would not introduce legislation to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
She accused Boxer of ‘a very extreme view –- that taxpayers would pay for virtually every abortion.’
Boxer said she supports taxpayer funding in cases where the life of the mother is in danger, incest and rape.
