FACT: Nikki Haley Promised to Sign a National Abortion Ban

After signing an abortion ban into law that had no exceptions for rape or incest as South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley promised to sign a national abortion ban while campaigning in New Hampshire last month — further cementing her record as an anti-abortion extremist. 

As governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley signed an extreme abortion ban into law that had no exceptions for rape or incest and threatened doctors with jail time.

TIME: “The law passed the General Assembly last week and blocks women from having abortions after 19 weeks of pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape or incest… Doctors who violate the law could face a fine or jail time.” 

Newsweek: “Haley described herself as ‘very pro-life’ and has spent most of her political career fighting for anti-abortion legislation, including signing a law as South Carolina governor in 2016 banning the procedure in most circumstances after 19 weeks of pregnancy unless the mother’s life is at risk.”

No matter how she tries to spin her MAGA agenda, Haley has already committed to signing a national abortion ban if elected.

Fox News: “Republican presidential candidate and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is pledging to sign a federal ban on abortion.”
