A child’s location makes a huge amount of difference to Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Katie McGinty.
A pro-abortion Democrat, McGinty has been touting her Catholic roots and her large family in her campaign to unseat incumbent Pat Toomey, a strong pro-life Republican.
“As the ninth of ten kids and the daughter of a police officer and restaurant hostess, Katie’s working class roots shaped her values and the priorities she will fight for in the U.S. Senate,” her campaign told PhillyMag in June.
Earlier this summer, McGinty’s campaign released a TV ad that showed photos of each of her siblings, her parents and her family together. The ad then claimed that she will be a voice for working-class families in Washington, D.C. However, the pro-abortion candidate’s promises to fight for families leave out children who are still in the womb.
The Catholic blog Creative Minority Report had this to say about McGinty:
What a horrible irony that she is a complete radical on abortion who has vowed to fight any and all restrictions on abortion and is on track to be the top recipient of funds from Emily’s List, the horrible pro-abortion PAC.
So as the ninth child of ten she supports killing children. Yeah, that makes sense.
McGinty supports a policy of abortion on demand, allowing unborn children to be aborted for any reason, according to the National Right to Life Committee. She recently wrote an opinion piece stating her opposition to a Pennsylvania bill to ban dismemberment abortions, a gruesome second-trimester procedure where unborn babies are torn limb from limb. McGinty was endorsed by Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, which is spending millions to attack her pro-life opponent.
McGinty also is refusing to tell voters whether she supports forcing taxpayers to fund abortions — a new goal of abortion activists and the Democratic Party, but one that most voters oppose.
In contrast, Republican Sen. Toomey has a 100-percent pro-life record. He co-sponsored and voted to advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks and protect unborn babies who can feel intense pain. He also supports a ban on dismemberment abortions and defunding Planned Parenthood, according to NRLC. Toomey also is committed to reversing the abortion-expanding and rationing effects of Obamacare.
