Bernie Sanders Condones Late-Term Abortions, “That’s My View”
The man who lost to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and just joined 2020 presidential race doubled down on his pro-choice views, agreeing that there should be no limits or regulation for abortions.
A longtime supporter of pro-choice legislation, even being against common sense abortion laws, Senator Bernie Sanders has dismissed the idea that abortion should have any limits whatsoever. One that is likely to carry on his radical pro-choice agenda if elected as president, Sanders has sided with pro-choice activists.
“In January 2018, he voted against a bill to ban late-term abortions — a bill that would have saved as many as 18,000 unborn babies from abortions every year. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have banned abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain,” according to Life News.
In an interview with Bret Baier, Sanders was asked the following question. “Can you name a single circumstance at any point in a pregnancy in which you would be okay with abortion being illegal?”
Skirting the question, Sanders responds:
“It’s not a question of me being okay. I happen to believe that it is wrong for the government to be telling a woman what to do with her own body. I think, I believe, and I understand there are honest people. I mean, I have a lot of friends, some supporters, some disagree. They hold a different point of view, and I respect that. But that is my view.”
He shrugged it off by placing all the responsibility in the hands of the woman. Sanders thinks the abortion question is irrelevant to him. He took the easy way out in saying it’s a “woman’s choice” to decide if she wants to end the life of her pre-born child.
Shifting blame to the GOP, Sanders claims that Republicans want government out of everything except a woman’s body stating,”Somehow on this issue, they want to tell every woman in America what she should do with her body.”
Finishing up the interview, Baier attempts and fails to get a straightforward answer from Sanders, “I guess the genesis of the question is that there are some Democrats who say after five months, with the exception of the life of the mother or the health of the baby, that perhaps that’s something to look at. You’re saying no.”
“I am very strongly pro-choice. That is a decision to be made by the woman, her physician, and her family. That’s my view.”
2020 presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders thinks there should be no limits on abortions. And that’s just his view.
