Amid a heated national abortion debate, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) is unveiling sweeping a campaign platform that entails the development of a White Office devoted to advancing abortion rights.
“On Day One, I will create a White House Office of Reproductive Freedom, charged with coordinating and affirmatively advancing abortion rights and access to reproductive health care across my Administration, addressing all barriers to full reproductive autonomy, such as access to health care, including maternal and infant health quality, affordable child care, and comprehensive paid family leave,” Booker vowed in a statement Tuesday.
“It has never been more important to stand in solidarity and join the fight to ensure that all women have access to reproductive health care and abortion rights. These far-right attacks on women’s rights must be understood as an attack on all of our rights.”
The New Jersey Democrat’s plan would annul President Donald Trump’s pro-life executive orders that prohibit federal funds from assisting organizations that promote or provide abortions, mandate employer health plans to cover the cost of contraception and repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funds to pay for abortion except to save the lie of a woman of if pregnancy arises from incest or rape.
Booker’s abortion campaign pledge comes after pro-life laws in Alabama, Ohio and Georgia sparked upheaval amongst pro-choice activists and feminists groups over the states’ restriction of abortion to the first few weeks or the illegalization of abortion altogether.
Last week, the presidential contender also penned a proposal for GQ warning men that women deserve autonomy of their bodies.
“Men, it’s on us to listen, to speak out, and to take action. Not because women are our mothers, sisters, wives or friends – but because women are people. And all people deserve to control their own bodies,” Booker wrote.
Democrats are increasingly explicit in their support for killing unborn children at any stage of pregnancy and are even attempting to deny adequate normal medical care to born children.
In January, New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a legalizing abortion until the ninth month, and even after the unborn child is viable, terminating the procedure is permitted so long as the abortionist makes a “reasonable and good-faith judgment” that the abortion will protect the pregnant women’s health.
Earlier this year in Virginia, state legislator Kathy Tran introduced legislation that would make abortion legal even at term and in the middle of birth. Governor Ralph Northam supports that legislation, arguing abortions late in the pregnancy would be performed in cases in which the unborn child is severely deformed and parents should be permitted to withhold medical care if the infants are fully delivered.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
