Democratic Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs would not answer a question on Sunday regarding whether abortions in the state should be limited based on the age of the child in the womb.
The incident occurred during a discussion with a local CBS host asking whether she supported limits on abortion after 15 weeks.
“Democratic Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs refused to answer Sunday whether abortions conducted in Arizona should have a time limit based on the baby’s gestational age.”

“Well, women deserve access to abortion care. Abortion is healthcare. I’ve been very clear on my position on that throughout my time in the legislature,” Hobbs said. “So, if I’m elected governor, that’s what folks are getting.”
“I will work with the legislature that’s in place to ensure that women have continued access to reproductive healthcare,” she added.
Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey signed SB 1164 into law last month that bans abortion after the infant reaches 15 weeks.
Abortion at any time is NOT healthcare, @katiehobbs, and you’re out of line with a majority of Arizonans⁰⁰This November Arizonans need to elect a strong, pro-life Governor to continue the work of saving the most vulnerable! #AZgov #AZpol https://t.co/hx6aebt4Vk

The new report shows the strong contrast between the state’s Democratic candidate and the current GOP governor on the important view of life.
