“I’m not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman’s right in her freedom to choose,” the former U.S. attorney said when asked if he would support a 20-week ban on abortion. “That’s just the position that I’ve had for many years. It’s the position that I continue to have.”

“But when those people ? I want to make sure people understand, that once a baby is born, I’m going to be there for that child,” he continued. “That’s where I become a right-to-lifer.”

Doug Jones is a pro-abortion absolutist

As Hot Air points out, Jones favors late-term abortion. He opposes a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks on the federal level. He even opposes the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits public funding of abortions. Jones, therefore, might be forgiven for believing that he favors the right to have an abortion up to the moment of birth and is cool with the idea of taxpayer money being used to pay for it. Jones will certainly be called upon to clarify his views and reveal if he does favor any restrictionson abortion at all. Most abortions are banned in Alabama after 22 weeks, though the matter is still pending in the courts, according to the New York Times, The only states where there are no restrictions of when an abortion can take place are Alaska, Colorado, Washington D.C, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, and West Virginia.

 

Late term abortions tend to be rare even in states where they are allowed. There is little information available on why such procedures are done, though abortion supporters claim they are used primarily for medical reasons,

 

 

Todd asked Jones a series of questions in the 7-minute long interview, televised nationally. On gun rights , Jones said he is “a Second Amendment guy.”

“We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another,” Jones said.  “I want to enforce the laws that we have right now. The biggest issue, I think, that’s facing the Second Amendment right now is that we need to make sure we shore up the National Crime Information System, the NCIC system for background checks, to both keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but at the same time, cut down on error so that law-abiding citizens can get those.”

Jones said he loves to hunt and has a case full of his own guns, but wants to make sure regulations are “smart.”

 

One day before birth its fine to kill a baby, its just gotta be born before he stands up for it.  Yup real standup "moderate"  Guess he just takes a knee for the unborn.  I can support a lot of things but murdering unborn children after 22 weeks is a line I can not cross without the mothers life hanging by that decision.

Guess I will have to wait to see what his "smart" regulations on 2nd amendment looks like to see how he stacks up against crazy Roy Moore - may have to write in Mrs. Potato Head.
