Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbardsi said yesterday that she will not run for re-election to her congressional seat — preferring to stay focused on tying to become the Democrat presidential nominee. She also claimed all American’s are “God’s children” — though unborn children don’t make her cut.
“I’m fully committed to my offer to serve you, the people of Hawaii & America, as your President & Commander-in-Chief. So I will not be seeking reelection to Congress in 2020. I humbly ask for your support for my candidacy for President of the United States,” Gabbard tweeted early Friday with a link to her video announcement.
Gabbard began the video by expressing her gratitude to the people of Hawaii, and continued on to discuss what she plans to do if elected president in 2020.
“As President, I will immediately begin work to end the new Cold War and nuclear arms race, end our interventionist foreign policy of carrying out regime change wars, and redirect our precious resources towards serving the needs of the people here at home,” Gabbard said in her announcement, adding that she would lead the country with “aloha,” a Hawaiian term that embodies love, peace, and compassion.
“Washington, our country, and the world is in dire need of aloha,” Gabbard continued. “Only aloha has the power to heal the divisive wounds in our nation. Only aloha has the power to bring our nation together — recognizing we are all God’s children, and we are all Americans. As President, I will lead with aloha — putting people ahead of profits, putting people ahead of politics, putting the wellbeing of our people and our planet above all else.”
Sadly Gabbard doesn’t extend aloha to babies before birth nor does she regard them as God’s children or express concern about their well-being.
Recently, Gabbard said she would allow abortions up to birth, saying that women should have that right and the government has no role to play in protecting the life of unborn children.
In an interview with Dave Rubin, the Hawaii congresswoman and Democrat presidential candidate conceded that abortion should not be allowed during the last three months of pregnancy.
“I take a more libertarian position on this issue that government really shouldn’t be in that place of dictating to a woman the choice that she should make,” Gabbard began. “I think there should be some restrictions, though. For me personally, I would not make that choice for myself, but I don’t believe that I should be telling anybody else the kinds of decisions that they should make for themselves or their family and therefore a woman should have the right to choose and I will stand up and fight to protect her right to do so.”

She continued, “I think the third trimester, unless a woman’s life or severe health consequences is at risk, then there shouldn’t be an abortion in the third trimester.”
Conservative news outlets celebrated her comments — saying that somehow they separate her from the rest of the presidential pack on the Democrat side, all of whom support abortions up to birth without any limits.
But if you examine Gabbards’ comments further you see that she wants no government involvement at all in the abortion question. Although she says she supports restrictions, not allowing government to implement any limits on abortion essentially undercuts her entire statement and reduces it to the long standing “personally opposed but” position that Democrats who support abortion have used for decades to make their radical pro abortion views look less radical.
At the end of the day Gabbard can claim that she supports limits on abortions up the birth but unless she actually supports legislation to ban late term abortion her comments aren’t worth much of anything. And with Democrats legalizing abortions up the birth in states like New York and Illinois and resisting legislation in Congress to stop and fan aside, actions speak considerably louder than words.
And when it comes to actions, Gabbard, who has taken thousands from the Planned Parenthood abortion company, has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and she has refused to sign a discharge petition allowing a vote on the Born Alive bill to stop infanticide and protect babies who survive abortions.
