Former Housing secretary Julian Castro officially ended his bid for the Democratic nomination for president on Thursday after a lackluster showing in the polls.
“It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today. I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight,” he said in a statement.
One thing Castro fought for extensively was for the ability to kill babies in abortions up to birth.
Ironically he fought to stop euthanizing cats and dogs but Castro does not believe that babies in the womb deserve similar protections. Instead, he supports abortion on demand, and recently headlined an event with the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
Castro has been cozy with the abortion chain for years. In 2014, former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards posted a picture of herself with Castro to congratulate him when he was confirmed as the secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Obama administration.

He also supported Planned Parenthood’s effort to derail a late-term abortion ban in Texas. According to the abortion chain, Castro joined the pro-abortion Stand With Texas Women bus tour rally in San Antonio. He also is a long time supporter of Texas abortion activist Wendy Davis.
Castro supports forcing taxpayers to fund abortions through his Medicare for All plan. He also promised to appoint judges who would uphold Roe v. Wade, which allows unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth.
These positions not only are radical and out of touch with most Americans, they also are cruel to unborn babies. Abortions destroy the lives of unborn babies in barbaric, violent ways, sometimes by dismembering the baby while his/her heart is still beating. Every year, nearly 1 million unborn babies are legally aborted in America – including thousands who are capable of feeling pain.
Castro and his fellow Democratic presidential candidates claim to fight for the rights of the most vulnerable in society. They tout themselves as caring, compassionate lawmakers. But they ignore – and sometimes even embrace – the barbarity of abortions by ignoring the humanity of the unborn child and fighting instead for the abortion industry.
