Bill Richardson on Abortion


(Editor's Note: Richardson dropped out of the presidential race for the Democratic nomination after finishing fourth place twice, with 2 percent of the delegate in the Iowa caucus and 5 percent of the delegate in the New Hampshire primary. Read an explanation on his campaign Web site.)

He is pro-choice and promises to support abortion rights and medical privacy for women. He is the only candidate who has said he was committed to appointing judges who consider Roe v. Wade settled law.
