Montana

Senate Candidates: At a Glance

Steve Bullock’s views on abortion are extreme.  Most Montanans, whether pro-life or pro-choice, believe there should be reasonable restrictions on abortion to protect the health and safety of women and their unborn children, but Steve Bullock doesn’t think there should be any limits at all.

As Governor, Bullock has vetoed every piece of legislation passed by the legislature to protect women and unborn babies.

Steve Daines

Current pro-life Republican senator
  • Senator Steve Daines voted to ensure equal medical care for infants born alive during a failed abortion attempt

  • Senator Steve Daines voted to protect unborn babies from late-term abortions after 20 weeks (more than halfway through pregnancy)

  • Senator Steve Daines founded the first Senate Pro-Life Caucus, dedicated to defending the right to life

  • Senator Steve Daines supports judges like Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh who respect the Constitution and interpret the law, not write the law

On his website, Senator Steve Daines affirmed his pro-life position: “I cannot support an organization that would place a dollar amount on a baby’s body parts. The fight to protect women’s health care, while redirecting funds away from Planned Parenthood, is not over. I will continue working vigorously to defend life and protect the most vulnerable in our society: the unborn.”1
