With the midterm elections in the United States close, eyes across the country are once again turning to Pennsylvania, which put President Joe Biden on top in 2020. Among the important campaign issues, abortion.

The midterm elections in the United States are less than two weeks away. There are 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 36 governorships, 34 mayoralties and 35 seats in the Senate at stake. In the Senate race currently controlled by Democrats by one vote, the race in Pennsylvania could define the political future of the country.

In Pennsylvania, Democrat and Lieutenant Governor, John Fatterman, faces the famous television doctor, Republican Mehmet Oz. In one of the most watched debates so far in the campaign, the candidates were asked about the issue of abortion.

“I believe that abortion is a universal right for all women in America. Abortion is public health and I believe that this is a decision that women should make with their doctors,” responded John Fatterman.

Narrow margin

For his part, Mehmet Oz stated that “there should be no involvement of the federal government in how states decide on abortion. I want local women, doctors and political leaders to let democracy, which has always allowed our nation to thrive, come up with the best ideas so states can decide for themselves.”
