Politicians make promises all the time to secure votes, but whether they follow through on those promises is another question entirely. Here’s one promise you can take to the bank: Bernie Sanders will only nominate federal judges who support abortions up to birth.
During the Democrat presidential debate, Sanders made the promise abundantly clear: “I will never nominate any person to the Supreme Court or the federal courts who is not 100% pro-Roe v. Wade.”
Sanders’ abortion extremism didn’t stop there: “We have got to codify Roe v. Wade into legislation,” he promised. “We have to significantly expand funding for Planned Parenthood.”
Those ideas would mean overturning every single pro-life law in the United States that saves babies from abortion and sending more taxpayer dollars to the biggest abortion business in the nation.
Earlier this month, Sanders said he would sign an executive order on Day 1 forcing Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion chain. It’s no surprise that Sanders would force Americans to fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, since he has a n extensive record supporting abortions up to birth.
Sanders’ views on abortion are, perhaps, the most radical of all the Democratic presidential candidates, but every top contender supports unrestricted taxpayer-funded abortions up to birth and he calls killing babies in abortions a constitutional right.
In September during the CNN climate town hall, Sanders went further than the rest by arguing for more abortions as a population control measure.
Sanders has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record in the Senate, including a recent vote against a bill to protect newborns from infanticide. In April, he also tried to justify his position allowing unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to birth. Sanders told the Fox News town hall that late-term abortions are “okay” because they are “rare.” About 12,000 late-term unborn babies are aborted each year.

In 2018, he voted against a bill to ban later abortions — a bill that would have saved as many as 18,000 unborn babies from abortions every year. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have banned abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are nearly fully formed and capable of feeling intense pain.
Though Democrat leaders claim their radical pro-abortion stance represents the majority, polls show otherwise. Two new polls this week from Marist and Gallup show strong public opposition to abortion on demand.
According to Marist, more than six in 10 Americans (62%) say that if the Supreme Court revisits Roe v. Wade it should allow states to determine restrictions (46%) or make abortion illegal (16%). Only 33% of Americans say Roe v. Wade should be interpreted to allow for legal abortion any time without restriction.
Gallup found that 58% of Americans are not satisfied with current abortion laws, and more want stricter laws that limit or ban abortions.
