Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Katie McGinty is Fine With Aborting Babies at Six Months

Her television ads note that she hails from a family of ten children and that she is the mother of three. The commercials also proclaim that she is a “champion for working families.” As a result, Pennsylvania television viewers may draw the conclusion that U.S. Senate candidate Katie McGinty is pro-life. Sadly, McGinty, the Democratic challenger to pro-life Republican Senator Pat Toomey, actually has an extreme pro-abortion position and plans to pursue a radical abortion agenda if she is elected in November.

To begin with, McGinty penned an op-ed piece in which she vehemently opposed a common sense bill that would ban the brutal practice of dismemberment abortions. Keep in mind that, in these abortions, babies are torn limb by limb from a mother’s womb. It is a ghastly practice and it should not be tolerated in a civilized society. And yet, McGinty wants absolutely no limits on the procedure. A statewide poll conducted last year found that the vast majority of Pennsylvanians support a ban on grisly dismemberment abortions. In fact, the support among women for such a ban is even higher than the support of men. Clearly, McGinty is out of the mainstream when it comes to this issue.

Moreover, McGinty opposes an effort to change the legal limit on abortions in Pennsylvania from six months’ gestation to five months. This, even though premature babies are being saved at earlier and earlier stages of development. McGinty is ignoring science—and the will of the people—with her radical stance.

McGinty supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason. Again, she is out of step with the public, since national polls show that a majority of Americans oppose most abortions.

McGinty is supported by the radical pro-abortion PAC known as Emily’s List, which opposes limits on abortion. Its extreme position is in sharp contrast to the viewpoints of most Americans.

The Senate candidate believes your tax dollars should support organizations that perform abortions, and would refuse to cast a vote to repeal Obamacare, which contains provisions that provide government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion on demand.

Despite the photos of beautiful children that appear in her slick TV ads, McGinty, were she to be elected, would pursue a disturbing agenda that would cause great harm to babies, their mothers, and the families she claims to champion.

Compare this with Senator Pat Toomey, who has been the true champion of families. Senator Toomey supports legislation that would protect babies and their mothers from the brutality of dismemberment abortions. He is committed to stopping the abortion-expanding elements of Obamacare, and has voted to repeal the dangerous health care law. He opposes tax dollars being spent on entities that perform abortions. He is supported by the National Right to Life PAC and the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation PAC.

When it comes to the life issues, the differences between Senator Toomey and Katie McGinty are abundantly clear this election season. Senator Toomey would safeguard the right to life, protect women from dangerous abortion operations, and ensure that hard-earned taxpayer dollars are not delivered to organizations that are in the abortion business. McGinty would offer no protection for preborn children, would leave women more vulnerable than ever to the abortion industry, and would continue to channel tax dollars to abortion operations.

Pennsylvania voters will have to ask themselves, “Which candidate is standing up for families—and which one is standing up for the abortion industry?”
