Bob Stefanowski: Don't make abortion illegal; but parental notification ok

[The moderator] asked the candidates how they would approach abortion. No one on the stage was open to making abortion illegal. Stemerman and Stefanowski offered no opinion on abortion from the stage. After the debate, they called the issue a distraction from fiscal and economic challenges. Herbst has said in other venues, Stefanowski said off stage he would support a law requiring parental notification for a minor to get an abortion.
