Donald Trump has not even been sworn into office yet, but already Democrats are considering potential candidates to challenge him in 2020.
On Tuesday, The Hill published a list of its top 15 possible Democratic candidates to run against Trump. It appears that everyone on the list right now supports abortion – a position that ignores pro-life Democrats’ calls for the party to step back from its extreme pro-abortion stance.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts made the No. 1 spot. Warren, once considered as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton, continues to be a favorite among Democrat leaders; she also has a strong pro-abortion record.
A former Harvard University professor, she led the fight to force religious groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor and Christian businesses like Hobby Lobby to be mandated to pay for drugs that may cause abortions in their health plans. Warren also has a 0-percent pro-life voting record in Congress, according to the National Right to Life Committee.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is No. 2 on the list. While running against Clinton in the primary, Sanders told Fox News that he could not think of a single time when any abortion should be illegal. Late-term abortions, abortions for birth control, abortions for convenience, etc.: None of those cases — when most American oppose abortion — apparently qualify as a time when abortion should be legal.
“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,” Sanders said. “I’m very strongly prochoice, that is a decision to be made by a woman and her doctor.”
Less well-known is No. 3 on the list: Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey. A young Senator, Booker supports late-term abortions and taxpayer-funding of abortions and opposes the ban on partial-birth abortions, according to the Susan B. Anthony List.
Other notables on the list include Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, all of whom support abortion.
To pro-lifers, the name at No. 11 also should stand out. Kamala Harris, the newly elected Senator from California, is the former attorney general who ignored the potentially illegal activity uncovered at Planned Parenthood and went after undercover investigator David Daleiden instead.
LifeNews published several stories in the past year noting an apparent conflict of interest in Harris’ investigation of Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress that ignores obvious evidence of illegal conduct on the part of Planned Parenthood.

The abortion group donated $81,000 to Harris‘s political campaigns. Later, emails obtained by the Washington Times revealed that Harris’s office and Planned Parenthood worked together on a bill to ban undercover journalism efforts like Daleiden’s.
