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.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
