“What I don’t understand is why people want to put in rules that would return us to a time when abortion was illegal and women died and suffered unnecessarily.” – speaking at a rally outside the Alabama State House, in Alabama.com.

“I see women who are crying because they are Christians and they are torn up by the fact that they don’t believe in abortion but they’re about to have one. What I tell them is that doesn’t make you a hypocrite. You can never say what you will do until you’re in the situation, and Christians get in jacked-up situations, too.” – to Esquire.

“There’s nothing immoral about taking care of your health. There’s nothing immoral about making the decision to not because a parent before you want to become one. There’s more than one way to understand religion and spirituality and god.” – to Esquire.

“I decided that women in my home state and my home region should have no less access to these very important vital services.” – in the State House rally, as reported by Alabama.com
