In a new interview, Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan makes it clear he supports abortions up to birth and wants absolutely no limits on killing babies.

During an interview with CNN, Ryan was asked whether he thinks there should be any restrictions on abortions. Ryan couldn’t name a single limit he supported — including banning late-term abortions on babies up the way up to birth.

Q: “What restrictions, if any, do you believe there should be on abortion?”


Q: “So should there be some restrictions?”

RYAN: ……

Q: “It sounds like you’re saying no restriction.”

RYAN: “Well…”

That Ryan support no limits on abortions up to birth is not surprising given his pro-abortion voting record. Ryan is an original co-sponsor of legislation that would effectively codify a right to abortion on demand until birth into federal law and nullify pro-life laws in Ohio and across the country. Ryan has earned an F on SBA List’s National Pro-Life Scorecard for his consistent pro-abortion voting record.

Ryan’s extreme pro-abortion position is one reason why pro-life candidate JD Vance is leading the Ohio Senate race.

After an Emerson College poll had Republican nominee JD Vance, who is pro-life, leading his pro-abortion Democratic opponent Tim Ryan by 3%, a new survey shows Vance’s lead is expanding. The new Trafalgar poll in Ohio shows JD Vance leading Tim Ryan 49.5% to 44.9%.

Vance defeated six other GOP candidates to win the Ohio Republican Senate primary and will face off against Ryan in November. Also, leading pro-life groups backed Vance and will enthusiastically support him against Ryan.

SBA List Candidate Fund PAC President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented:

“We congratulate J.D. Vance on his primary win. An unflinching advocate for life, Vance is in touch with Ohio values and can take the fight to pro-abortion elites in D.C. In stark contrast, Tim Ryan is an extremist who consistently sided with Nancy Pelosi in the House. Ryan boasts about his efforts to impose taxpayer-funded, unlimited abortion up to birth and block democratically enacted protections for unborn children and mothers in Ohio and nationwide. In a crucial year when the people may finally have their right to pass life-saving laws restored, Ohioans deserve a senator who hears their voice and stands up to the pro-abortion Biden-Schumer agenda. Elections have consequences and we will work relentlessly to defeat extremists like Tim Ryan who cater to the radical abortion lobby.”

Ohio Right to Life also supported Vance. Marshal Pitchford, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Ohio Right to Life Society said:

“The Ohio Right to Life Society is proud to offer our full endorsement to Mr. Vance.  Ohio Right to Life believes that JD Vance is the best candidate to continue the exemplary pro-life service and statesmanship currently demonstrated by Senator Rob Portman.  JD Vance is 100% pro-life and we are confident that he will not only advance the cause of life but defend the unborn from Planned Parenthood and their allies in our nation’s capital. JD Vance will be a great US Senator.”
