Abortion activist Bernie Sanders leads tonight’s Democrat presidential primary in New Hampshire — after finishing in second in Iowa. He is followed closely by pro-abortion Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who narrowly won the Iowa caucus, and a surprising third place finish by pro-abortion Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
With almost 70 percent of ballots counted, Sanders has 25.89%, Buttigieg 23.72%, Klobuchar 20.31%, and pro-abortion Elizabeth Warren 9.48% while pro-abortion Joe Biden dropped to 8.61%.
Klobuchar claimed she had the ability to defeat pro-life President Donald Trump.
“Hello, America, I’m Amy Klobuchar and I will beat Donald Trump,” she said after taking the stage.
“Because of you we are taking this campaign to Nevada. We are going to South Carolina. And we are taking this message of unity to the country,” she said.
Biden tried to reassure supporters even as he left the state for South Carolina.
“We’re going to be back, we’re going to be back in New Hampshire” to defeat Donald Trump, Biden said, adding that his campaign is “going on” to Nevada and South Carolina.
Meanwhile, pro-abortion Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet is dropping out of the presidential race. He focused his campaign on New Hampshire but got little support.
Every single Democrat running for president and participating in the Iowa caucus supports abortions up to birth.
Bernie Sanders thinks it is a constitutional right to kill an unborn baby for any reason up to birth – and to force taxpayers to pay for it, too. The Vermont senator and presidential candidate has been touting a radical pro-abortion position that calls for unrestricted abortions up to birth, taxpayer-funded abortions and more.
Sanders claimed his position is constitutional.
“Abortion is a constitutional right – not a privilege for those who can afford it,” he wrote on Twitter.
Joe Biden once was more moderate on abortion, supporting restrictions on taxpayer-funded abortions and other measures, more recently, he has embraced his party’s extreme platform on abortion. In June, he announced that he no longer supports the Hyde amendment, which restricts taxpayer-funded abortions.
Biden’s new health care plan would expand abortions in multiple ways. If elected president, he would codify Roe v. Wade into federal law, prohibiting states from passing even moderate restrictions that protect unborn babies from late-term abortions, according to the report.
Biden’s health care plan would force insurers to cover abortion as “essential” health care. In doing so, he would end the Hyde amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions for any reason up to birth.
His plan also would restore the funding that President Donald Trump cut from the largest abortion chain in America, Planned Parenthood, according to reports. This would include ending the Mexico City policy, which prohibits foreign aid funding to groups that promote and provide abortions overseas. Under Trump, the policy cut about $100 million from the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s budget.
Last year, Elizabeth Warren said she would force Americans to fund abortions, adding that young people and poor people need to be able to have access to killing their children.
Warren answered a survey about abortion from the New York Times and defended the legality of killing viable babies in late-term abortions. Why? Because so few babies are killed every year at latter stages of pregnancy.
Warren joined all of the Democrats in defending abortion, as National Review reports:
Several candidates offered longer explanations, repeating the common claim that post-viability abortions are rare and only take place in the case of medical emergencies.
Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren used the same formula.
“Only 1.3 percent of abortions take place at 21 weeks or later, and the reasons are heartbreaking,” she said. “20-week abortion bans are dangerous and cruel. They would force women to carry an unviable fetus to term or force women with severe health complications to stay pregnant with their lives on the line.”
Warren is correct that just 1.3% of abortions are done to kill babies who at or after the point of viability. According to the most recently available 2014 data from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, however, that still comes to just over 12,000 abortions a year.
A 7-year-old girl put Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on the spot when she asked him why he thinks aborting an unborn baby is ok.
It showed how few share Buttigieg’s radical pro-abortion agenda. As mayor of South Bend, he tried to stop a pregnancy resource center from opening down the street from an abortion facility. Then, earlier this year, he celebrated when an abortion chain that amassed dozens of health and safety violations opened a new location there.
In May, when asked about abortions in the third trimester, Buttigieg said he thinks they should be legal and unrestricted. He told Fox News’ Chris Wallace, “I trust women to draw the line.”
Then in September, he suggested that it is ok to end a baby’s life until they draw their first breath. He even tried to align his pro-abortion stance with Christianity in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
There is no doubt that Tom Steyer, the single largest donor to the Democratic Party in recent years, would support abortion on demand if elected. Last summer, as the party debated welcoming pro-life Democrats, he announced that he would donate money only to pro-abortion candidates.
“We do not work for a single candidate who is not pro-choice,” Steyer said at the time. “I think people like to have litmus tests. We are explicitly pro-choice. We work a lot with Planned Parenthood, we work a lot with NARAL. We are absolutely committed to it.”
And finally, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar would work to make abortion an “American right” if elected to the highest office of the United States.
All of them are outside the mainstream of America, where 60% of Americans want all or most abortions made illegal.
