Kari Lake’s stance on abortion has undergone a swift and significant transformation in recent years.

During her unsuccessful bid for governor in 2022, Lake voiced enthusiasm at the prospect of an antiquated law imposing a complete prohibition on abortion in Arizona following the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

Nevertheless, upon the recent affirmation of the statute by the Arizona Supreme Court, Lake, who is currently campaigning for a seat in the U.S. Senate, responded by expressing her disagreement with the ruling and urging the state’s Democratic governor to implement further measures to safeguard the right to choose.

Now, Lake is reaffirming her new attitude in a video message that contains words typically associated with Democrats rather than Republicans.

“This total ban on abortion that the Arizona Supreme Court just ruled on is out of line with where the people of this state are. The issue is less about banning abortion and more about saving babies,” Lake said.

“I agree with President Trump, this is such a personal and private issue. I chose life, but I’m not every woman. I want to make sure that every woman who finds herself pregnant has more choices, so that she can make that choice that I made. I’ll never forget the first time I got pregnant, taking that pregnancy test, looking down, and I was excited. But I’ll be honest, I was afraid as well. I was nervous, I was anxious. It’s natural for women to be nervous and anxious when they’re pregnant.” she continued.

“I never would ever assume that any woman had the same exact feelings I had or situation I had. We know that some women are economically in a horrible situation. They might be in an abusive relationship. They might be the victim of rape. I agree with President Trump, we must have exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of a mother.” Lake concluded.
