Democratic Montana Gov. Steve Bullock said Monday night that though he defends a woman’s decision to choose abortion, the Democratic Party should not exclude people based on “litmus test issues.”
Bullock spoke at an event in Fort Madison, Iowa, where he discussed his thoughts on abortion. Bullock is running as a Democratic presidential candidate, but did not qualify for Wednesday’s debate.
“I am someone that has always defended a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions,” Bullock said, adding that he thinks this should be a woman’s decision “in consultation with her doctor, her family, and her faith if she so chooses.”
But Bullock emphasized that he does not think the Democratic Party should exclude people based on litmus tests.
