Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced today that he is seeking the Democratic Party nomination for president. He has s strong pro-abortion record including signing a bill to force people to fund abortions.

Inslee is running on a climate change platform, which frequently includes population control and pushing abortion as a way to have fewer people:

“We’re the first generation to feel the sting of climate change. And we’re the last who can do something about it. We went to the moon and created technologies that have changed the world. Our country’s next mission must be to rise up to the most urgent challenge of our time — defeating climate change,” Inslee said in a video Friday announcing the run. “I’m running for president because I am the only candidate who will make defeating climate change our nation’s number one priority.”

Inslee plans on making global warming the central issue of his campaign. The so-called “climate candidate” recently said “we’ve never had a president who’s said this is the number one priority of my administration.”

“We have one administration left … to restrain this monster,” Inslee told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday. “When your house is on fire, you go grab the bucket and you fight the fire, even though your lawn needs mowing and you haven’t answered the mail. That’s the situation we’re in. This is a one-time chance.”

However, Inslee may face an uphill battle in a competitive Democratic primary field and among an electorate that consistently ranks climate change as a low priority. For example, a Pew Research Center poll from January found climate change ranked 17th of 18 on a list of issues voters want as a top priority for Congress and Trump this year.

Last year, Inslee signed a bill into law incentivizing more women to abort their unborn babies by requiring that health insurance plans cover abortion on demand.

Inslee signed a bill to force health insurance plans to cover abortions if they also cover maternity care. The bill also would set up a program to pay for abortions for women without insurance and those on Medicaid, with state taxpayer funds.

The bill had the support of abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood and NARAL.

Inslee also refused to investigate the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies.

And last year, Inslee visited a Planned Parenthood on Monday to announce his support of the abortion chain and its taxpayer funding. Afterward, Inslee called a Trump administration effort to defund abortion groups of tax dollars “barbarous” and promised to fight it.
