Colorado Senator Michael Bennet announced today that he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination along with a couple dozen other candidates.
There is really very little to distinguish Bennet from the other pro-abortion candidates running for the right to face off against pro-life President Donald Trump. Bennett has voted 100% pro-abortion, supports abortions up to birth, and even voted to block a vote on a bill that would stop infanticide.
“We cannot be the first generation to leave less to our kids, not more. That’s why I’m running for President,” Bennet announced on Twitter Thursday morning. “Let’s build opportunity for every American and restore integrity to our government.”
On an interview with CBS News, Bennet emphasized that the nation faces two enormous challenges – “a lack of economic mobility and opportunity for most Americans” and the “need to restore integrity to our government.”
And he stressed that “if we continue to go down the path we’re going, we’re going to be the first generation of Americans to leave less opportunity, not more, to the next generation. I just need to do everything I can do that we don’t do that.”

In February, Senate Democrats blocked a request by Republicans to vote on a bill that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who are born alive after botched abortions. The vote to stop the Democrat filibuster needed 60 votes but Democrats stopped the chamber from getting enough. Bennet voted with Democrats against allowing the vote.
Michael Bennet supports a policy of abortion on demand, which allows abortion for any reason. Bennet voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) that would ban late-term abortions on babies after 20 weeks. And, Bennet is a co-sponsor of S. 217, a bill that would invalidate virtually every pro-life law nationwide.
Bennet voted to spend federal funds on health plans that pay for abortion on demand and he voted against a bill to require an abortionist to notify at least one parent before performing an abortion on a minor girl from another state. Bennet voted against passage of a budget reconciliation bill (H.R. 3762) that would defund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion company and he voted in support of Obamacare, which provides government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion on demand, and imposes rationing of lifesaving medical care.
The senator voted for the health care restructuring bill that includes abortion funding, supporting taxpayer funding of groups that promote and perform abortions overseas, refused to support health care coverage for unborn children, and voted to hurt the free speech legislative and election efforts of pro-life groups.
