Scott Howell on Abortion

2000 Democratic Challenger for Senate (UT)

Abortion only for rape, incest, or maternal health

As an active member of the LDS church, Scott supports the First Presidency's position on abortion. Scott believes that the procedure should only be performed in the event of rape, incest, or health and life of the mother. He also believes that when a woman is faced with the sad, even tragic choice to end a pregnancy, the decision should only be made after prayerful consultation with her clergy, her family members and her physician.
