Every Democrat Running for Senate Supports Abortion Up to Birth

Senate Democrat candidates have made abortion a key focus of their political campaigns this fall while avoiding details that expose just how radical their position on the issue is.

But it does not take much exploring to find out that every Democrat candidate in the 10 most-watched Senate races supports abortions for basically any reason up to birth and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them.

Among their top priorities if they win a few more seats in the Senate is a radical pro-abortion bill nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act. The legislation, the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth, end bans on sex-selection and taxpayer-funded abortions, and get rid of laws requiring parental consent and informed consent.

Polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans oppose such extreme measures, but many candidates avoid questions that reveal what they actually support regarding abortions and the law.

Here are the candidates and their records on the issue:

Florida: Val Demings

Currently serving in the U.S. House, Demings is a co-sponsor of the pro-abortion WHPA. Although she has portrayed herself as a moderate, she has voted to get rid of the Hyde Amendment, a popular and long-standing ban on taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs. She is challenging pro-life Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.

Recently, in an interview with Jim DeFede of CBS Miami, Demings could not name any abortion limits that she supports, according to Breitbart. Initially, she said she supports abortion “up to the point of viability,” but when DeFede asked her to explain, she did not give a direct answer.

Ohio: Tim Ryan

Ryan, a congressman, has earned an F on SBA Pro-Life America’s National Pro-Life Scorecard for his consistent pro-abortion voting record.

Ryan once identified as pro-life but abandoned the position in 2015 as his party shifted further left on the issue. In addition to supporting the WHPA, he also co-sponsored the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH) Act, which would repeal the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions.

In an August interview with CNN, Ryan hesitated and struggled to answer questions about restrictions on abortions. He could not name a single limit he would support, including banning late-term abortions on unborn babies up to birth.

Ryan is running against J.D. Vance, a pro-life Republican, for the open seat.

Arizona: Mark Kelly

Kelly is another supporter of the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, or the WHPA. Kelly has a consistent pro-abortion voting record, including legislation that would wipe away nearly all pro-life state legislation that protects both mothers and unborn babies.

An incumbent, he is facing pro-life Republican challenger Blake Masters.

Georgia: Raphael Warnock

The first-term Democrat promotes himself as a “pro-choice pastor” while advocating for the killing of unborn babies in abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. Warnock has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record in the Senate, according to the National Right to Life Committee. This includes the WHPA and legislation to end bans on taxpayer-funded abortions.

Despite being a pastor, Warnock recently even refused to support religious protections for pro-life doctors and nurses in a recent interview.

“Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock refuses to answer if he supports religious liberty protections to ensure pro-life doctors aren’t forced to participate in abortions,” SBA Pro-Life America wrote on Twitter, linking to a video of Warnock’s comments.

Herschel Walker, a pro-life Republican and former NFL star, is running against him.

New Hampshire: Maggie Hassan

Hassan, an incumbent, has a long record of pro-abortion votes, including opposing a recent bill to protect viable, late-term babies who survive abortions from infanticide. Hassan also supports legislation to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions and force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

Republican candidate Don Bolduc is running against her.

North Carolina: Cheri Beasley

Beasley, a former state Supreme Court justice, recently claimed killing unborn babies in late-term abortions is “health care” after a federal judge reinstate a North Carolina law that bans abortions after 20 weeks.

She did not respond in August when The Federalist asked her if she supports any restrictions on abortion up until the moment of birth. However, Beasley told the Raleigh News & Observer in June that she supports the WHPA and opposes the Hyde Amendment.

Pro-life Republican Tedd Budd is running against her for the open seat.

Nevada: Cortez Masto

The Democrat incumbent has verbally attacked pro-life charities that help pregnant and parenting mothers in need while supporting abortions without limits through all nine months of pregnancy. Last week, she co-sponsored a bill that could shut down pregnancy resource centers across the country.

Cortez Masto has an extreme pro-abortion voting record. Among other things, she voted for a bill nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, which would force states to legalize the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for their deaths.

Her challenger, former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, is a pro-life Republican.

Pennsylvania: John Fetterman

Running for an open Senate seat, Fetterman is one of the few candidates who has said openly that he opposes all limits on abortion. If elected, he promised to vote for the radical pro-abortion WHPA.

“Are there any limits on abortion you would find appropriate?” Fetterman was asked in a recent PCN interview.

“I don’t believe so, no. I believe that is between a woman and her physician,” the candidate replied.

In April, Fetterman said something very similar when he described abortion as “sacred” and promised to support legislation allowing abortions “without any qualification whatsoever.”

Pro-life Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz is running against him.

Wisconsin: Mandela Barnes

Barnes promised to support the pro-abortion WHPA, if elected, and has the backing of major pro-abortion groups. In an endorsement, NARAL Pro-Choice America said Barnes “has pledged his support for critical legislation to protect and expand reproductive freedom, including the Women’s Health Protection Act.”

He is challenging pro-life incumbent U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson.

Washington: Patty Murray

An incumbent, Murray has a long record of defending abortions up to birth and ignoring infanticide. In 2019, she voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, telling EWTN that politicians should not “get between a woman and her doctor.”

Last week, Murray dodged multiple questions about her pro-abortion position when asked about a national 15-week abortion ban, which has strong public support.

When asked if she supports any limits on abortions, Murray told Fox News, “We want to put in law protections for every woman in the country, no matter where they live, or how much money they make, or where they come from [to give them] the ability to make their own health care decisions as they had under Roe before it was overturned.”

Republican candidate Tiffany Smiley is challenging Murray in November.
