Sen. Orrin Hatch
Sen. Orrin Hatch is the Republican candidate in the Senate race in Utah. He is the incumbent.
Sen. Hatch is anti-choice.
Sen. Hatch earned a 0-percent score in NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.
Voted to block Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds, which would have denied millions of Americans access to contraception, cancer screenings, and other basic medical care.
Voted for a budget bill that would have cut funding for contraception and cancer screenings, made it harder for low-income women in D.C. to choose abortion care, and eliminated family-planning programs for the world's poorest women.
On his congressional website, Sen. Hatch writes: "Without the right to life, all other rights are meaningless, and for that reason, I have always been strongly opposed to abortion. During congressional debate on this subject, I informed my colleagues that ten times the number of American lives in all of our nation's wars have been lost in the continuing tragedy of abortion."
Candidate choice positions are determined by NARAL Pro-Choice America using current research. Choice positions are subject to change.
