In a contentious interview Wednesday night on "Hannity," Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio affirmed that he supports a woman's right to choose, but when pressed by host Sean Hannity he refused to say whether he supported any abortion restrictions.
"Do you support any restrictions on abortion? It's a simple question," Hannity pressed.
"It's a simple answer. I believe in Roe v. Wade," the New York City mayor said, referring to the Supreme Court's 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
Earlier, Hannity brought up a proposed Virginia law that would allow women to terminate a pregnancy up to the moment before birth.
Hannity continued to press de Blasio on the issue
"Do you support any restrictions until the baby's born?" Hannity asked.
"I believe it's a smokescreen because it doesn't happen in America. Women make this choice. It's a sacred choice," de Blasio said.
"Eight months into pregnancy, should a woman be allowed legally to have an abortion?" Hannity continued to ask.
"Again, I've told you I believe woman's right to choose. Period," de Blasio said, ending the discussion.
