PHOENIX – With a potential upheaval in abortion laws looming, Republican candidate Karrin Taylor Robson said Thursday she would work to build “a culture of life” if elected governor of Arizona.

“Abortion in my estimation is evidence that we have failed women,” Taylor Robson told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show. “Women need to understand that they have nonviolent choices available to them.”

The abortion issue was thrust into the campaign spotlight last week when a draft opinion was leaked suggesting the U.S. Supreme Court was poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, which made the procedure a constitutional right. If the high court issues a final ruling consistent with the draft opinion, state lawmakers would be able to enact abortion laws without federal review.

Taylor Robson, founder and president of a Phoenix real estate consulting firm, said any changes to Arizona abortion rules should take into account medical advances made since Roe vs. Wade was decided in 1973.

“I’ve been pro-life my whole life, and we may soon be delivered a whole new legal landscape that that may require updating our state laws,” she said.

“And we should do so with what I call gentle strength necessary to build and preserve a culture of life.”

Taylor Robson said she wants Arizona to be one of the most anti-abortion states in the country. Her approach would include using state resources to provide pregnant women with counseling, housing and other support.

“We’ve gotten ourselves to a culture where mothers can walk into a clinic, kill their baby and come out and be OK with that,” she said.

“That’s not OK. And as a culture and as a society we have to do better.”
