Roy Moore Longs For The Days Of Criminalized Abortions And Social Stigma
U.S. Senate candidate former Chief Justice Roy Moore said last week that he wishes that America would return to the 1960s and 1970s, when same-sex marriage was illegal and transgender rights didn’t exist, according to Alabama Political Reporter.
Moore is running for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Doug Jones and recently spoke to the Huntsville Republican Men’s Breakfast group.
“We have got to go back to what we did back in the sixties and seventies back to a moral basis. We did not have a national healthcare system,” Moore said.
He continued: “You know when [President] Obama passed this thing rising all our costs and business started going down the tube everybody said it was going to be repealed. You never hear anybody in Congress talk about it now. Our indebtedness was $22 trillion. Back in the sixties and seventies it was much lower. It was a sixth of that.”
The Republican Senate candidate then said, “Abortion was not legal when I went to Vietnam. It was passed later. It was OK’d later. We had abortion laws in our country and our state. We did not have same sex marriage. We did not have transgender rights. Sodomy was illegal. These things were just not around when my classmates and I went to West Point and Vietnam.”
Although Moore won the GOP nomination in the special Republican primary election of 2017, he was defeated in the general election by Jones.
