Mace Applauds Nikki Haley’s Message Of Protecting Women In Abortion Debate

In an exchange on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) praised former Governor Nikki Haley and GOP presidential candidate for her unique stance on abortion. Mace’s support for Haley’s position comes after last week’s Republican debate, in which candidates expressed their pro-life views and discussed potential restrictions on abortions. 

According to Mace, it was Haley who stood out by advocating for a perspective that focuses on women’s well-being rather than demonization. This approach resonated with Mace, who emphasized the importance of embracing a pro-woman and pro-life stance.

“Certainly, every candidate talked about being pro-life and what their limits may or may not be, but the only candidate on the stage that talked about how we should protect women and not demonize them was Nikki Haley. That is a message we have to carry through. We have to be pro-woman and pro-life,” Mace stated, speaking to anchor Nancy Cordes.

The Congresswoman further elaborated on the significance of this perspective, saying, “You cannot go after women and attack them because they make a choice you don’t like or agree with because it’s a sensitive subject right now.”

“We want to show that we’re going to protect women who have been raped, girls victims of incest. We want to make sure every woman in this country, regardless of where she lives or how much money she makes she, has access to birth control. Those are the kinds of things we’ll talk about child care, but those are the kinds of things that matter to women. We have to show that we care,” she added.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Haley’s vision of a respectful and compassionate approach to the abortion debate was evident during the recent GOP debate as she made a compelling case for addressing abortion in a way that respects differing viewpoints while remaining true to core values.

Even after the debate, Haley continued to spread her bold stance on the abortion issue. During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” two days later, she advocated for what she called a more humanized approach to the debate, arguing that the Republican Party’s approach of demonization only fuels the divisions within the country.

“I think the division in this country has gone too far. We have to start looking at the vision going forward. My vision is how do we save as many babies as possible and support as many moms as possible. If that’s the case, be honest with the American people,” she remarked.

She then added, “Tell them what is possible and what’s not possible, and let’s bring people together based on humanity, not based on making people hate each other. And I think it’s happened too long, and I’m just not going to be a part of that. I refuse to be a part of that.”
