GJ is against abortion

He said as Ron Paul that this issue should be left to the states and that he would appoint pro-life Judge Napolitano to SCOTUS -- don't listen to the Romney team on this site.

Gary Johnson has a nuanced and confusing position on abortion. On the one hand, he believes that Roe v. Wade (1973) "expanded the reach of the Federal government" and vows to overturn the decision by appointing judges "who will interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning." On the other, he has argued that a woman has a right to have an abortion "until the viability of the fetus," which is the position that Roe v. Wade takes. What this suggests is that Johnson is casually pro-choice but opposes pro-choice federal policies, and should be regarded as an anti-abortion candidate for policy analysis purposes.
