Pro life presidents
Jimmy Carter
Ronald Reagan
George H.W Bush
George W. Bush

Pro Life Vice Presidents
Hubert Humphrey
Dan Quayle
Dick Cheney

Pro Choice Presidents
Richard Nixon
Gerald Ford
Bill Clinton
Barack Obama

Pro Choice Vice Presidents
Nelson Rockefeller
Walter Mondale
Al Gore
Joseph Biden

Anti Birth Control Presidents
Theodore Roosevelt


Notes: Nixon and Ford were leaning pro life when they we're presidents, then later became pro choice. Teddy Roosevelt argued with Margaret Sanger through letters, he is the precursor to the current pro life GOP, haha! Also , does anyone know whether Spiro Agnew was pro life or pro choice? I know he wrote at least one book after being vice president, anyone ever read it?

Ford also became pro choice later in life. Nixon seems pro life in his memoir, but in his later books he is clearly pro choice.

Sorry to bump the thread, but I think I finally found Spiro Agnew's position on abortion: He signed a liberalized abortion bill as governor of Maryland.

Also, candidate Alf Landon disliked Reagan bringing up abortion in politics, so it's clear he was pro choice.

I tried to find information on John Bricker's position, since he lived until the '80s, but I couldn't find any.
