Kyl vs Pederson on Abortion

Republican incumbent John Kyl faces challenger Democrat Jim Pederson in the upcoming election for U.S. Senate.

Partial-Birth Abortion

The partial-birth abortion procedure – used from the fifth month on – involves pulling a living baby feet-first out of the womb, except for the head, puncturing the skull and suctioning out the brain. The great majority of partial-birth abortions are performed on healthy babies of healthy mothers.
Jon Kyl opposes partial-birth abortion, and voted for the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.   Jim Pederson accepted $10,000 in campaign contributions from the pro-abortion group NARAL, which supports candidates who support unrestricted abortion on demand, partial-birth abortion, and tax funding of abortion.

Abortion on Demand

Jon Kyl supports legal protection for unborn children, and opposes abortion on demand.   Jim Pederson supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason.

Parental Involvement

Jon Kyl co-sponsored and voted for a bill that would prevent minor daughters from being taken across state lines for secret abortions without parental notice or consent.   Jim Pederson did not answer the National Right to Life questionnaire.
