Howard Schultz on Abortion

Starbucks CEO; independent candidate for President until July 2019

 


Pro-choice, but against third trimester abortion

Potential 2020 presidential candidate and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz weighed in on the issue of abortion at a Fox News town hall in Kansas. "I have been a person that is pro-choice," he said. "I recognize that every woman--this is such a personal issue--and it's between her and her god as to what that decision should be. And in my view, there should be no abortion that is in the last trimester."

Pro-choice advocate for all of my life

The most compelling questions ultimately came from online viewers, who asked, among other things, whether Schultz was pro-life or pro-choice. "I have been an advocate of being pro-choice for all of my life," Schultz said, awkwardly, explaining that he doesn't think abortion will be an issue in 2020. He then quickly pivoted to his Jewish identity and Israeli-Palestinian relations.
