Candidate Review - Abortion - Duncan Hunter

Duncan Hunter doesn't have an issues page, he has a "Core Principles" page. And his number one Core Principle? A Right to Life Amendment.
I would amend the U.S. Constitution and provide blanket protection to all unborn children from the moment of conception by prohibiting any state or federal law that denies the personhood of the unborn. Likewise, I have also introduced the Right to Life Act, which would legally define “personhood” as the moment of conception and, therefore, guarantee all constitutional rights and protections, including life, to the unborn without utilizing a constitutional amendment.
I'm not sure Mr. Hunter understands how the Presidency works; Presidents don't get to amend the constitution. But presumably he means he would persuade Congress to promote and pass a constitutional amendment.

I note that his position on abortion is very very easy to find, in contrast to some of our Democratic pages.

His website is functional, but not flashy and not that full.
