At a campaign stop in Iowa this past January, Ted Cruz denied ever supporting personhood legislation, claiming it is counterproductive for the pro-life movement.
Pro-Life Wisconsin supports federal and state efforts to establish legal personhood for preborn children.
Here is a transcript of his words:
"I believe we should protect every human life, from the moment of conception to the moment of death. I have not supported personhood legislation because I think, and the pro-life community is divided on this, but I think personhood legislation can be counterproductive because it focuses on issues that are unrelated to protecting unborn children, and I think our focus should be valuing and cherishing every human life."Watch the video here.
This seems to contradict a previous statementfrom Cruz calling for congressional action to establish legal personhood for preborn children.
