WATCH: Mehmet Oz Says Abortion Decision Should Be Left Up to ‘Local Political Leaders’

October 27, 2022

Dr. Mehmet Oz does not want the federal government involved in personal healthcare choices, like abortion, but he does want local political leaders involved, in addition to women doctors. Governor John Fetterman, who is recovering from a stroke and often appeared to struggle to answer questions in a cogent manner. While Fetterman’s performance led many question his ability to serve in the U.S. Senate seriously, Oz’s desire to have local politicians involved in a woman’s healthcare decision will raise many eyebrows. Oz has been a Pro-Life candidate from the beginning, and his experience as a doctor gives him some authority on medical procedures. One wonders how he would feel if local politicians interfered with any medical procedure decisions that he was to undertake, either for a patient or for himself.
