During last night’s second Democrat debate, Bernie Sanders declared that killing babies in abortions up to birth is a “constitutional right” and he promises to do everything he could if elected president to defend legalized abortions.

“Well, my plan, as somebody who believes for a start that a woman’s right to control her own body is a constitutional right, that government and politicians should not infringe on that right, we will do everything we can to defend Roe versus Wade,” Sanders promised abortion activists.

Sanders also threatened to pack the court with abortion supporters to enshrine abortion for another four decades.

“Second of all, let me make a — let me make a promise here. You ask about litmus tests. My litmus test is I will never appoint any, nominate any justice to the Supreme Court unless that justice is 100 percent clear he or she will defend Roe v. Wade,” he said.

“I do not believe in packing the court. We got a terrible 5-4 majority conservative court right now. But I do believe that constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts. And that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court and a majority, I hope, that will understand that a woman has the right to control her own body and the corporations cannot run the United States of America,” he added.

Sanders then declared that his plan for Medicare for All would ensure an unlimited right to taxpayer-funded abortions, forcing Americans to kill babies.

“We will pass — well, first of all, let me tell you this. It didn’t come up here, but let’s face this, Medicare for All guarantees every woman in this country the right to have an abortion if she wants it,” Sanders added.
