U.S. Sen. Cory Booker will only nominate judges who support abortion on demand if elected president, he said this week.
NJ Advance Media reports Booker, a New Jersey Democrat who is running for president, made the comment in response to Alabama passing a law that protects unborn babies by outlawing all abortions.
“Cory is committed to not only appointing judges and Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade, but would take it further by vowing as president to sign legislation passed by Congress that would make Roe v. Wade federal law, even if the Supreme Court has overturned it,” campaign spokeswoman Sabrina Singh told the news outlet.
Under a big graphic that reads “Abortion is health care,” Booker also tweeted his support for killing unborn babies Wednesday.

“No person should stay silent as women’s human rights are eroded,” Booker said in a statement. “And I think it’s particularly incumbent on men — those of us in this presidential race and around the country — to speak out and stand shoulder to shoulder with the women leading the charge. Not because women are our wives, mothers, and sisters, but because they are human beings with the right to control their own bodies.”
Booker’s pro-abortion position is extreme. He recently voted against a bill to require that medical care be provided to newborns who survive abortions. His voting record is 100-percent pro-abortion.
In March, he blasted Trump and pro-life Republicans for enacting policies that “literally … could cause people’s death.” One of his examples was the efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, which kills more unborn babies than any other abortion group in America, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
