Fetterman and Oz Spar over Abortion, Economy in Only Debate Before Midterms

HeadlineOct 26, 2022

In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz faced off Tuesday in their only debate in the race for U.S. Senate. The men sparred over abortion, the economy and fracking. Fetterman also addressed his health, as he recovers from a May stroke. During a heated exchange over reproductive rights, Republican candidate Mehmet Oz offered this response on who should be involved in abortion decisions.

Dr. Mehmet Oz: “I want women, doctors, local political leaders letting the democracy that’s always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward so states can decide for themselves.”
