Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has claimed that laws to protect life in the womb are against the Christian faith as she attempts to climb from the bottom of the polls in her run for the Democratic presidential candidate in 2020.
Gillibrand claims that the Christian tenet of free will means that women should be allowed to terminate a pregnancy without any restrictions from government.
“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenants of our faith is free will. One of the tenants of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort,” she said.
Gillibrand makes it clear that she will stack the court with pro-abortion judges so that more women are empowered to kill their babies in the womb.
“Any Democrat who expects to win the presidency must answer definitively where they stand on this issue,” she said. “If this is a fight that President Trump wants, if this is a fight that he wants with the American people, if this is a fight he wants with America’s women, it is a fight he will have and it is a fight he will lose.”
Other proposed policies from Gillibrand to facilitate abortions include opening up federal subsidies by ending the Hyde amendment, making a guarantee for reproductive health services for women in every state, and codifying abortion across the nation regardless of state-level objections.
She traveled to the Georgia state House on Tuesday to grandstand and play identity politics in an attempt to gain support for a presidential campaign that has not resonated with Democratic voters. Latest polls conducted by Fox News and Quinnipiac have her at the bottom of the polls with zero percent support.
Gillibrand is not likely to make the debates, as she has yet to reach the 65,000-donor threshold to qualify. She is shaking up her campaign staff as her fundraising totals stagnate.
“I probably am having more fun than the other candidates,” she said to CNN reporters.
By staking out her position as a pro-abortion zealot, Gillibrand hopes to amass some momentum for a campaign lacking any of it.

Senate Democrats Shut Down Late-Term Abortion Bans, Born-Alive Protections
This party supports late-term abortion.
Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.
The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.
The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.
The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.
In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.
Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.
Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.
Today the Senate was asked an important question: where is your line for protecting life? Is it when the child can feel pain in the womb? Or even after the child is born? https://t.co/B16HQ1ldzQ

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
