Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, a pro-life conservative, has positioned abortion as a key issue for his campaign as he trails his pro-choice, progressive opponent amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, has taken a lead in the polls since the accusations against Moore became public. Jones' campaign told The Huffington Post in a statement that he supports the "current law" on abortion, which allows late-term abortions "to protect the life or health of the mother."

According to a Pew Research Center poll from 2014, over half of those surveyed in Alabama think abortion should always or almost always be illegal.

"Nothing is more precious in the sight of most people than the life of the child, so I can see why people in Alabama would be enraged knowing that Doug Jones is willing to take the life of a child," Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead told The Hill.

"Alabamians are pro-life and as they find out how extremely liberal Doug Jones is on this and other issues like transgender bathrooms, they are going to flee from him. … Voters need to be educated on the candidates and the issues regardless of what they are regardless of what other allegations are out there," he added.

In a statement to the Hill, the Jones campaign slammed Moore for attempting to distract from the accusations against him or his own policy positions.

"Roy Moore has no answers to the multiple reports about his inappropriate sexual behavior with teenagers, and no defense of his policy positions like comparing pre-school to Nazi indoctrination or making Alabamians pay more for health care," the statement said.

"Alabamians are fed up with his act and his pathetic attempts to distract from his divisive and extreme views. Doug believes this is a deeply personal decision and supports the laws that are already on the books."
