After the usual rather hostile political questions (read the full transcript here), someone finally asked a policy question.
AP reporter David Pitt: “I’m wondering what you do as Governor if the Iowa Supreme Court decides to overturn the previous ruling that a woman has a fundamental right to abortion under the Constitution?”
Unlike our current governor, DeJear would stand up for Iowa women’s rights.
DeJear: “Now we’re at a moment where the Supreme Court is putting the power of a woman’s decision on her body in the hands of the state and we know we have leadership that wants to be in that doctor’s office with that woman. I am of the mindset that I don’t belong in that doctor’s office with any woman throughout this state, that that is her choice and we should uphold that protection for that individual.”
