(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – In a recent interview, Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. argued that women should be given the right to choose whether they want to have an abortion even when the baby is “full-term.” 

During the interview, Kennedy was asked by podcaster Sage Steele what the cutoff period should be for women who want to have an abortion. The host specifically questioned whether there needed to be a limit, or if women should be able to go all the way to full term. 

In response, Kennedy argued that Kennedy had not thought that anybody was going to want to have an abortion during the eighth month of pregnancy, but that ultimately this was a decision that needed to be made not by the government but rather by the woman. 

Steele then questioned whether or not he agreed with the Roe v. Wade standards or with the idea that each state should have the option to choose what the abortion limits should be. 

Kennedy stated that even if a woman was at full-term he did not think that it was ever OK. Steele proceeded to ask Kennedy whether that meant he would allow late-term abortions, to which Kennedy answered that he believed the choice should be left to women and that the state should not have any control over it. 

His running mate Nicole Shanahan appeared surprised by these comments. Shanahan during a podcast episode with Steele stated that she believed Kennedy thought every abortion is tragic and there should be limits to abortion. She added that she did not know where his latest position had come from.
