GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley called for more “consensus” on abortion, saying that Republicans have a “long way to go” before any federal ban on abortion is put in place.
“I think that we have to humanize this situation and stop demonizing it. But in order to get a federal law, you have to have 60 Senate votes, a majority of the House and a presidential signature,” Haley told Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday,” noting that about 45 senators are anti-abortion.
Bream asked Haley, a former South Carolina governor, whether she would sign a 15-week ban on abortion if she was president. Haley responded that Republicans need to reach an agreement on the policies surrounding abortion in order to reach the 60 votes in the Senate needed to pass a ban.

She also said there should be more access to contraceptives and more encouragement for adoptions throughout the country….
