Hannity: Republicans Are Too Radical on Abortion

Fox News star Sean Hannity shocked viewers Thursday night when he suggested the Republican Party is too extreme when it comes to abortion.

The “Hannity” host gave guests Mike Huckabee and Tudor Dixon the last words on a segment reacting to Ohio voters defeating Issue 1 largely over abortion, which he called “sobering.”

Are Republicans too extreme on abortion?

“The fear among many, many conservatives is this will chase away many suburban voters,” Hannity said, suggesting any abortion ban before 15 weeks of pregnancy is too far.

Hannity pointed to former President Bill Clinton, concluding abortion should be “rare, legal, and I’d add the word, very early in a pregnancy.”

I think the American people– and I consider myself pro-life, I believe in the sanctity of life, but I think politically that there is– Republicans have gotta say as Bill Clinton once said – I never thought I’d quote him – “rare,” “legal,” and I’d add the word[s], “very early in a pregnancy.” That seems to be – politically – where the country is. Maybe I’m wrong. But we’ll see. That vote in Ohio is pretty, pretty sobering.

Huckabee disagreed.

“I think the problem is Republicans have done a very pitiful job of explaining that the difference is we want to protect life, Democrats want to take it right up to the point of birth. They want to butcher a fully developed child. We’ve got to take it to the Democrats. Quit playing defense. Let’s be clear about what we stand for.”
