Second Boxer-Fiorina Debate Addresses Abortion & Roe v. Wade

Los Angeles Times: Boxer-Fiorina Debate: Abortion Politics and Roe vs. Wade, by Shane Goldmacher:

 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. . . .
