Mike Bloomberg will be running a $10 million Super Bowl ad saying he’s “fighting for every child.” But the Democrat presidential candidate supports abortions up to birth and forcing taxpayer fund ending babies’ lives.
The hypocritical 60-second spot on gun control will cost the former New York mayor more than $10 million to air nationwide during the football game, which will be watched by hundreds of millions of people.
The ad, which will cost the former New York mayor more than $10 million to broadcast nationwide on Sunday, tells the story of Calandrian Simpson Kemp, a Texas mother whose 20-year-old son, an aspiring professional football player named George, was shot to death in September 2013 outside Houston.
“Lives are being lost every day. It is a national crisis,” Kemp says in the ad. “I heard Mike Bloomberg speak. He’s been in this fight for so long. He heard mothers crying, so he started fighting.”
“When I heard Mike was stepping into the ring, I thought, ‘Now we have a dog in the fight,’” Kemp says in the ad. “I know Mike is not afraid of the gun lobby. They’re scared of him, and they should be.”
She concludes: “Mike’s fighting for every child. Because you have a right to live. No one has a right to take your hopes and dreams.”
But Bloomberg doesn’t believe unborn babies have a right to live and he favor snuffing out their hopes and dreams.
A lawsuit filed in 1997 accused potential presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg of telling an employee to “kill” her unborn baby.
As mayor, Bloomberg pushed radical pro-abortion policies on New York City, including an ordinance that restricted pro-life pregnancy centers’ free speech. He also donated $250,000 to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, in 2012 and received an award from it in 2014.
New York City had the nickname “the abortion capital of the United States” under Bloomberg. More than 83,000 abortions were performed in New York City in 2010 – meaning 40 percent of all pregnancies in New York City ended in abortion. The number of unborn babies being killed in abortions was about the same in 2009, according to the city health department.
In addition to supporting pro-abortion policies, Bloomberg, his company and foundation also have donated huge amounts of money to pro-abortion causes. In 2012, Bloomberg Philanthropies launched a $50 million program in partnership with Planned Parenthood to push “reproductive health programs” (an umbrella term that includes elective abortions) on the world’s poorest countries.
Under his administration, the city also provided $15 million in bond funding for Planned Parenthood to renovate one of its huge abortion facilities in 2012.
Bloomberg also has been a big supporter of life-destroying embryonic stem cell research. In 2006, he donated $100 million to Johns Hopkins University for stem cell research, including embryonic stem cell research.
Bloomberg would be a sharp contrast to President Donald Trump, who has governed pro-life.
Pro-life leaders have praised the Trump administration repeatedly for working to protect unborn babies from abortion.
“President Trump has gone further to serve unborn children and their mothers than any president before him. His bold leadership has truly saved countless lives,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, who served as chair of President Trump’s Pro-life Coalition after securing four pro-life commitments from the nominee during the 2016 campaign. “From stopping taxpayer funding of abortion and of experimentation involving aborted baby body parts, to protecting conscience rights, to calling out extremist Democrats who support abortion on demand through birth and even infanticide, to his two outstanding Supreme Court justices and transformation of the federal courts, President Trump has beyond delivered on his promises to the pro-life voters who propelled him to victory in 2016.”
She told LifeNews: “The stakes of this election could not be higher as Democratic contenders line up to pander to the radical abortion lobby and declare war on even the most popular, modest pro-life policies, like the Hyde Amendment. This cycle SBA List will spend $41 million expanding to priority states, working closely with local allies on the most ambitious pro-life legislative agenda yet to aggressively challenge, erode, and finally, overturn Roe v. Wade. Our team will be working hard through Election Day to educate millions of voters, expose the extremism of Trump’s opponents, elect pro-life leaders to Congress and in the states, and win a second term for the most pro-life president in history.”
In one of his first acts as president, Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits taxpayer funding to groups that promote or provide abortions overseas. The change defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million in U.S. tax dollars.
Trump has repeatedly called out the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion. During his state of the union address this year, Trump slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. He also called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.
Trump and his administration have made a number of changes to protect those who morally object to abortions, expanding conscience protections for medical workers who believe it is wrong to kill an unborn baby and increasing religious exemptions for Obamacare.
His administration also intervened to stop the United Nations from supporting abortion in a resolution about sexual violence. In 2018, under his leadership, the State Department removed references to the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby from a global human rights report as well.
This spring, the administration also finalized a new Title X rule that requires health care entities to completely separate abortion from their taxpayer-funded services. Planned Parenthood, which already has said it will not comply, could lose about $60 million annually through the policy change. However, the abortion group is suing to block the cuts.
Trump has appointed dozens of conservative judges to federal courts as well, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court.
