HALEY: I am unapologetically pro-life. Having said that, we need to stop demonizing this issue. Unelected justices didn't need to decide something this personal, because it's personal for every woman and man. Now, it's been put in the hands of the people. That's great.
Q: What about a federal ban?
HALEY: Let's be honest with the American people and say it will take 60 Senate votes & a majority of the House. So in order to do that, let's find consensus. Can't we all agree that we should ban late term abortions? Can't we all agree that we should encourage adoptions? Can't we all agree that doctors and nurses who don't believe in abortion shouldn't have to perform them? Can't we all agree that contraception should be available? And can't we all agree that we are not going to put a woman in jail or give her the death penalty if she gets an abortion? Let's humanize the situation and stop demonizing the situation.
Gov. Nikki HALEY: Is climate change real? Yes, it is. But if you want to really change the environment, then we need to start telling China and India that they have to lower their emissions. That's where our problem is. And these green subsidies that Biden has put in, all he's done is help China because he doesn't understand all these electric vehicles that he's done, half of the batteries for electric vehicles are made in China. And so, that's not helping the environment. You're putting money in China's pocket. And Biden did that. We need to acknowledge the truth, which is these subsidies are not working. We also need to take on the international world and say, 'okay, India and China, you've got to stop polluting.' And that's when we'll start to deal with the planet.
PENCE: I am being honest [in wanting a federal ban].
HALEY: We have had 45 pro-life senators in over 100 years. So no Republican president can ban abortions, any more than a Democrat president could ban all those state laws.
PENCE: 70% of the American people support legislation to ban abortion --
HALEY: But 70% of the Senate does not.
