Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg have given “moderate” Democrat presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar an opening.
The two abortion advocates have made it clear to pro-life Democrats that they’re not welcome in today’s abortion-worshiping Democrat Party. Bernie Sanders told pro-life Democrats that they are not welcome, emphasizing that supporting abortion is an “essential part of being a Democrat.” And fellow candidate Pete Buttigieg told a pro-life Democrat voter basically the same thing on national television.
Sensing an opening to appear less radical, Klobuchar, the Minnesota senator, told The View that pro-life Democrats are welcome in her party.
Klobuchar made a remote appearance on ABC’s “The View” just ahead of the New Hampshire primary, taking her final question from Meghan McCain
McCain began by pointing to independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ comments regarding abortion.
“Bernie Sanders said — this is a quote. He said, ‘I think being pro-choice is an essential part of being a Democrat,’ and you got attention over the weekend because you don’t seem to think that,” McCain said. “You seem to think that there’s room for pro-life people in your party. I just want to confirm, do you think there’s room for pro-life Democrats to vote for you?”
“I have always been pro-choice, but I believe we’re a big tent party, and there are pro-life Democrats and they are part of our party, and we need to build a big tent,” Klobuchar continued. “I think we need to bring people in instead of shutting them out, and that also includes independents right here in New Hampshire as well as moderate Republicans.”
Klobucah is already fooling some conservatives.
As a conservative writer for the Washington Examiner writes, “Poll after poll proves that although the majority of Americans want abortion to remain legal, they also want it to become infrequent. Amy Klobuchar might be the only Democratic candidate who agrees.”

Polls actually show a majority of Americans want all or most abortions to be made illegal. That aside, Klobuchar has no interest in saving more babies from abortion. She has a very lengthy pro-abortion voting record and has repeatedly indicated she supports abortions up to birth.
As the leading pro-life group in her home state notes: “Amy Klobuchar has put together an extreme and uncompromising record on abortion during her 12 years in the U.S. Senate, according to Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL), the state’s largest pro-life organization.”
Klobuchar has never voted for a pro-life bill or for a restriction on abortion, no matter how modest, earning a zero percent pro-life voting record (zero pro-life votes out of 36 chances), according to National Right to Life. Klobuchar voted for taxpayer funding of elective abortions and taxpayer funding of the abortion industry. She voted to fund groups overseas that perform or promote abortions. And she voted against protection for unborn children after 20 weeks (and thus in favor of abortion in the sixth month and later), when unborn children can feel pain as they are dismembered and killed through abortion.
“Sen. Klobuchar has cultivated an image that has made her popular among many Minnesotans,” says MCCL Executive Director Scott Fischbach. “But her views on abortion and unborn children are decidedly out-of-step with the views of most Minnesotans and most Americans.”
“Voters should know that Amy Klobuchar takes a no-limits approach to the killing of unborn children,” concludes Fischbach. “Both babies and their mothers deserve better than this.”
Last May, Klobuchar made her pro-abortion views clear, saying she supports abortions up to birth. In response to a question about that and infanticide she didn’t bat an eyelash in saying that she supports and unlimited right for women to have an abortion.
