Today, pro-abortion Massachusetts congressman Seth Moulton joined the crowded group of Democratic Party 2020 hopefuls, saying he is running for president in 2020 against President Donald Trump, who has governed pro-life.
“I’m here to tell you and to tell America that I’m running for president of the United States,” Moulton told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Monday.
During his campaign, Moulton said he plans to “talk about patriotism, about security, about service. These are issues Democrats too long have ceded to Republicans.”
Here’s more from ABC News:
Moulton, a former Marine and an outspoken critic of his own party, was elected to the House in 2013 and has served three terms.
At 40, he’s the second-youngest candidate, three years older than Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, whom Moulton has described as a friend and fellow veteran. He’s also the third candidate who represents Massachusetts, joining fellow Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Gov. Bill Weld, the first Republican to challenge President Donald Trump ahead of the primaries.
The former Marine routinely expresses support for abortion.
Not only does Moulton have a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record like the other Democrat presidential candidates, he also sponsored a radical pro-abortion bill that would have legalized abortions for basically any reason up to birth.
The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” was introduced in Congress in 2017, with dozens of Democrat sponsors, including likely presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kristen Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.
Nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” by pro-life groups, the bill would have invalidated nearly all state and federal abortion regulations, including waiting periods, informed consent requirements, bans on late-term abortions and sex-selection abortions and more.
The congressman has also failed to speak out against Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats blocking a request by Republicans to vote on a similar bill to require medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions. He has failed to sign a Discharge Petition allowing a vote on the bill on the House floor — tat puts him on record supporting their decision to allow infanticide to continue unprosecuted.
