Dr. Oz's New Position On Roe V. Wade Has Twitter In A Tizzy

News recently broke, thanks to an exclusive from Politico, that the Supreme Court has the votes to overturn Roe v. Wade. If passed down, the ruling will no longer make abortion legal within the entire United States, but rather put the control into state-level governments.

Placing such an important law in the hands of various state officials is a terrifying thought for many women across the country, especially when people like Mehmet Oz, or Dr. Oz from "The Dr. Oz Show," are running for government positions (via MSNBC).

Oz, who has been endorsed by former president Donald Trump and has the support of Melania Trump as well, is hoping to become the next Pennsylvania senator. He took the endorsement with pride, stating, "I am honored to receive President Trump's full support and endorsement, and I thank him for that." He continued, "I'm ready to bring an America First agenda to the Senate for Pennsylvania."

As expected, anyone who runs with an ideology that Trump can get behind is a risk to women's reproductive rights, and Twitter is already up in arms with the candidate's take on the latest news surrounding Roe v. Wade.

Dr. Oz has flipped his position on abortion rights

Dr. Mehmet Oz took to Twitter following the Supreme Court leak surrounding the vote on Roe v. Wade and quickly made his stance known. He wrote, "The Court is right. Roe was wrongly decided. Abortion laws should be left up to the American people and their elected representatives. I look forward to supporting pro-life legislation that saves innocent lives in the U.S. Senate."

However, this is not Oz's original stance on the topic. During an interview with the Breakfast Club radio show in 2019, he stated that he was pro-abortion rights. On the topic, Oz said, "It's, as a doctor — just putting my doctor hat on — it's a big-time concern." He added, "Because I went to medical school in Philadelphia, and I saw women who had coat-hanger events. And I mean really traumatic events that happened when they were younger, before Roe v. Wade. And many of them were harmed for life."

Twitter was quick to call out his inconsistency. One user wrote, "Dr. Oz is willing to change his views to whatever he thinks will make him seem like a Republican. Before he ran for office, he sang a very different tune." Another tweeted, "Tell me, Dr. Oz, how much is a soul going for these days and how much did you get for yours?"

This is not the first time Oz has shared his new position. According to The Daily Beast, he has made it clear that if he is to be elected to the Senate, he will be a pro-life official. What a change.
