DETROIT, Mich. — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders expressed his support for allowing abortion without restriction until birth during a televised town hall event on Monday.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Sanders, a socialist, attended the event in Detroit to push for votes ahead of Tuesday’s primary.
“Can you name a single circumstance at any point in a pregnancy in which you would be okay with abortion being illegal?” Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked.
“There are a whole lot of people out there who tell me that government is terrible, government is awful, get government off our backs,” Sanders stated. “But somehow on this issue they want to tell every woman in America what she should do with her body.”
Baier then reiterated his initial question asking if Sanders supports any restrictions at all.
“I guess the genesis of the question is that, you know, 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,” he said. “You’re saying no.”
“I am very strongly pro-choice,” Sanders replied. “That is a decision to be made by the woman, her physician and her family. That’s my view.”
Last month, the Democratic presidential candidate stated that there is dismay as to why organizations such as Planned Parenthood have endorsed Hillary Clinton over himself as he has long been in favor of abortion on demand.
“If you have 100 percent Planned Parenthood voting record—100 percent pro-choice voting record—there are people who are asking, ‘Why is the leadership not either supporting Bernie Sanders or why are they, you know, opposing him?” he said.
“We are not going back to the days when women had to risk their lives to end an unwanted pregnancy. The decision about abortion must remain a decision for the woman and her doctor to make, not the government,” Sander’s campaign website outlines. “We are not going to allow the extreme right-wing to defund Planned Parenthood; we are going to expand it.”
“As president, Sen. Sanders will only nominate Supreme Court justices who understand that Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and recognize the rights of women to have access to family planning services,” it further explains.
Hillary Clinton was also interviewed during the Town Hall and likewise expressed her support for abortion, but said, “I have been on record in favor of a late-pregnancy regulation that would have exceptions for the life and health of the mother. I object to Congress to pass a law saying after 20 weeks, no such exceptions.”
When asked if she believes an unborn child should have any protections in the womb, she pointed to Roe v. Wade, claiming that abortion is a mother’s right.
“It’s not much of a right if it’s totally limited and constrained, so we’ve got to continue to stand up for a woman’s right to make these decisions and to defend Planned Parenthood, which has done an enormous amount of good work across our country,” she asserted.
Nearly 60 million children have been murdered in the womb since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973.
