New York Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand wants to purge the Democratic Party of pro-lifers.
Gillibrand argues that the party has no room for lukewarm abortion supporters.
The New York Senator said that talking point of keeping abortion “safe, legal, and rare” is outdated and being pro-abortion is non-negotiable. In an interview with the Washington Post, Gillibrand called out anti-abortion bills moving across the nation.
Gillibrand told the Washington Post that “As a party, we should be 100 percent pro-choice, and it should be non-negotiable.” She added, “We should not settle for less, and if our party cannot support women’s basic human rights, their fundamental freedoms to make decisions about their bodies and their futures, then we are not the party of women …”I will not compromise on women’s reproductive freedom.”
The protection of Roe v. Wade has been a central part of her presidential campaign platform. According to Politico, she released a pledge with a plan to enshrine Roe vs. Wade protections into law, should she become president.
Like gun control, abortion has become a wedge issue that Democrats have become progressively more radical on during the past few decades. Now Democrats are showing their true colors as they have moved leftward and taken extreme stances on issues like abortion. The recent passage of Alabama’s pro-life bill will make abortion one of the hottest issues in the 2020 elections.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
