Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a long history of supporting abortions up to birth and infanticide. So it comes as no surprise that in response to Alabama passing a bill to ban abortions he would call killing babies and abortions a so-called “constitutional right.”
Abortion is a constitutional right.

Sanders was quickly rebuked by hundreds of pro-life people responding to his tweet. Here’s a sample of some of those responses:
For which human being. The baby in the womb is not a citizen? What makes a human a citizen? Ability to breathe air independently? Is the right to take the life of a unborn helpless baby a Constitutional right? I don’t remember reading that.

Waoo, killing babies now seams to be the new campaign logo. This is getting ridiculous.

I guess I missed the part where it said murdering babies was a constitutional right?

isn’t the right to live also a constitutional right?

Sanders has never been a moderate on the abortion issue. And as a candidate for president he would take those views to the White House.
He consistently has stood by the Democrats’ radical pro-abortion agenda, and rejected even moderate abortion regulations, such as a late-term abortion ban. All indications suggest he would continue to do so if elected president of the United States.
Sanders’ votes have been consistently pro-abortion when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable, defenselessness lives in America today.
In January 2018, he voted against a bill to ban late-term abortions — a bill that would have saved as many as 18,000 unborn babies from abortions every year. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have banned abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain.
The legislation had strong public support, but Sanders and his fellow Democrats killed it. Fifty-one senators (48 Republicans and three Democrats) voted to take the bill up for debate, but 60 votes were required to overcome Democrats’ filibuster.
Sanders’ famously couldn’t answer a question about if there was ever a time in pregnancy where he would ever limit abortions.
“Can you name a single circumstance at any point in a pregnancy in which you would be okay with abortion being illegal?” Bret Baier asked Sanders.

“It’s not a question of me being okay,” Sanders said. “I happen to believe that it is wrong for the government to be telling a woman what to do with her own body. I think, I believe, and I understand there are honest people. I mean, I have a lot of friends, some supporters, some disagree. They hold a different point of view, and I respect that. But that is my view.”
Sanders complained Republicans who want to “get the government off our backs,” yet “somehow on this issue, they want to tell every woman in America what she should do with her body.”
Baier followed up: “I guess the genesis of the question is that 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. You’re saying no.”
Sanders refused to allow any limits on abortion: “I am very strongly pro-choice. That is a decision to be made by the woman, her physician, and her family. That’s my view.”
