Ben Carson using RU-486, stopping ‘abortion on demand’ and ‘culture of death’

Dr. Ben Carson may still be trailing Donald Trump in recent GOP presidential polls, but Carson may be more appealing to pro-life voters, doubling down and clarifying his stance on abortion during an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

WSJ: What legal restrictions on abortion do you support and would you try to enact as president?

Mr. Carson: I support the law that we have on the books but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try to change it.

WSJ: What would you try to change?

Mr. Carson: I would try to appoint people who believe in the culture of life and not the culture of death. But you do it legally and through the process that we have in place.

WSJ: So what legal restrictions would you try to change?

Mr. Carson: What would I like to see in an ideal world? I would like not to see abortion on demand.

WSJ: Does that mean no legal abortions at all?

Mr. Carson: I would not like to see any abortion on demand. I don’t in any way subscribe to the idea of killing babies. There’s just no way I can couch it that it should be done.

WSJ: Would you seek to eliminate access to drugs like RU-486 that can end a pregnancy after intercourse?

Mr. Carson: RU-486 and other progestins if you know what you’re doing, say in the case of a rape, can be, can prevent conception from occurring. But you have to know what you’re doing, you have to know how it’s used. You have to know what the period is, all those kinds of things are very important. Because RU-486 and progestins prevent ovulation … But if the eggs are already in the tube, then it doesn’t work. It can do it, but then it becomes an abortive drug and I don’t agree with that.
