[SALT LAKE CITY– June 23, 2022] Project Veritas Action has published undercover footage of U.S. Senate Candidate, Becky Edwards (R-Utah), speaking candidly about her intention to “stand up” for abortion.

In the video, Edwards is approached by a Project Veritas Action undercover reporter who expressed support for abortion. Edwards described her concern for Utah’s abortion trigger law which would set a new policy framework on the matter in the event Roe v. Wade is overturned. 

“I can absolutely guarantee you, I’m your best bet,” Edwards said.  “And the only candidate who has even said anything other than, ‘joyful, happy, yay, answer to prayer,’ on what we’re seeing on [overturning] Roe,” Edwards added.

Edwards then said, “I’m going to stand up,” and repeats that when the undercover journalist says, “for abortion.”

In the footage, Edwards makes comments critical of states with similar laws planned to take effect. “No, no! Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, what the heck? Idaho even!”

Edwards is running to unseat incumbent Senator, Mike Lee. At the time of this writing, Edwards has not responded to a request for comment.
