Joe Biden has asked pro-abortion Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota to undergo the traditional vetting process possible vice presidential candidates go through. Klobuchar is an ardent abortion activist supports abortions up to birth and has voted pro-abortion 36 of 36 times, including blocking a vote on a bill to protect babies from infanticide.

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.

Klobuchar also co-sponsored sweeping legislation that would have invalidated nearly all limits on abortion, at any stage of pregnancy.

“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.”

In December, Klobuchar indicated would work to make abortion an “American right” and would force Americans to fund the abortion industry and keep the killing of unborn babies legal for basically any reason up to birth.

Asked about “reproductive freedom” as an “American right,” Klobuchar told the magazine that abortion is a big priority for her.

“Codifying Roe v. Wade, which a number of the other candidates share, is probably the number one thing we could do so that if a court starts to mess around with it, it is in law,” she said.

Klobuchar said she also would start appointing pro-abortion judges “immediately” who would uphold Roe v. Wade. The 1973 decision made the U.S. one of only seven countries in the world to allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Since the case was handed down, more than 61 million unborn babies have been aborted.

If elected, Klobuchar would force taxpayers to fund the billion-dollar abortion industry, too.

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.

Klobuchar is a huge contrast to President Donald Trump.

Trump defunded Planned Parenthood of about $60 million under a new Title X rule. His Mexico City Policy, which prohibits taxpayer funding to international aid groups that promote or perform abortions, also defunded the International Planned Parenthood Federation of $100 million and the British-based abortion chain Marie Stopes International of an additional $73 million.

Klobuchar referred to the regulations as “domestic and international gag rules” and promised to get rid of them.

“One thing that’s so important right now is funding Planned Parenthood. This president has reversed that, and that’s something I could change immediately,” she told the magazine.

Klobuchar has an extreme pro-abortion voting record that is out of touch with most voters. Ppro-life students protested Klobuchar in the bitter cold after she voted against a bill to protect newborns from infanticide.
