There have been a few reports about Caitlyn Jenner’s stance on the new Abortion Law held up in the Supreme Court in Texas.
Headlines have alluded to the fact that she supports Texas abortion Law, but she actually straddles the fence which is the main source of the confusion.

Appearing on CNN’s New Day, the reality TV star was pressed by anchor Brianna Keilar on her personal view of the Texas law, which the Supreme Court refused to block in a midnight decision.
The law not only bans abortion before most women even know they’re pregnant but it also effectively deputizes private citizens to seek bounties on those who “aid and abet” women seeking abortions in the state.
“On that issue, where are you? Do you think that California should have a similar law?” Keilar asked the one-time Olympic champion.
I am for a woman’s right to choose,” Jenner responded before trying to have it both ways. “I am also for a state having the ability to make their own laws.
So I support Texas in that decision, that’s their decision. But as far as being a woman’s right to choose, I don’t see any changes in our laws in California in the future.”
Keilar, meanwhile, wondered aloud how Jenner could hold what were in essence contradictory positions, noting that the I Am Cait star was saying she was “fine with a law that essentially outlaws abortion” despite claiming to support abortion rights.
“I think that they have the right in their state to do what they want to do,” Jenner shrugged. “Now do I agree with the decision or not? No. To be honest with you, I actually probably do not agree with the decision. But I agree that they do have the right to make their own decision.”
While attempting to thread a needle between compassionate conservatism and Trumpy politics, Jenner’s campaign has mostly drawn mockery and criticism over her comments about homeless people, trans athletes, and her own voting record in California.
