As Senate Candidate, Hagel Opposed Abortion Even In Cases Of Rape Because It Was "Rare"... this guy obviously doesn't know what he's talking about. Women become pregnant from rape all the time! Is he for real? What's your opinion on Mr. Hagel? Is he for real or another party fake?
As a Senator, Hagel repeatedly voted against amendments to allow servicewomen to pay for abortion services at military hospitals out of their own pockets.
According past campaign literature, Chuck Hagel opposed abortion in cases of rape and incest because those cases are "rare."
"I am pro-life with one exception — the life of the mother. I oppose taxpayer funded
abortions. We must promote adoption and support the strengthening of American families. I will vote with and support the pro-life movement," Hagel said in a piece of 1996 campaign literature, according to the Omaha World Herald.
Hagel finished his career in the Senate with a 94% rating from the National Right to Life Committee. He had a 100% rating from the Family Research Council his last year in office.
