Montana Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock said Sunday “it’s not up to people like me” to determine when and if a woman has an abortion.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Bullock, who is among the expansive field of Democratic candidates for president, said he believes life stars when a fetus can survive outside the womb.

"I would say that life begins at viability, but either way it's not up to people like me to be making these decisions,” he said. “It's not what I think, it's what does an individual woman need to do with her body and with her health care." 

Bullock added he believes the Supreme Court decision in 1973 in Roe v. Wade should stand.

“Ultimately, the Supreme Court settled this 45 years ago,” he said. "It's not my decision to be making a decision that a woman needs to make in consultation with her doctor, her family, her faith."

Bullock also portrayed his candidacy as one that will fight for the middle class.

“The guy that cleans this very building paid more in taxes last year than Amazon did with $10 billion in profits,” he said.

“The economy is booming,” he added. “But for a whole lot of folks they’re not getting ... better because of the Trump tax cuts.”
