John Fetterman Struggles to Answer Questions, But Knows He Supports Abortion Up to Birth

Pennsylvania Democrat candidate John Fetterman struggled to articulate his pro-abortion views last week at a campaign event amid serious questions about his physical health after a recent stroke.

The lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, Fetterman is running for an open U.S. Senate seat against Dr. Mehmet Oz, a pro-life Republican. Although Fetterman has a radical pro-abortion stance and recent reports say he struggles to talk and understand basic conversations, most polls show him with a slight lead.

BPR reports Fetterman tripped over his words again last week while advocating for abortion during a campaign speech.

“Abortion rights deserve to every woman regardless of where straight – uh, excuse me – what state that you live,” he told the crowd.

While the candidate’s statement was jumbled, his position on abortion and unborn babies’ right to life is clear. Fetterman thinks unborn babies should be allowed to be killed in abortions for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy and taxpayers should be forced to pay for elective abortions. He also wants to end the filibuster.

Recently, the Democrat candidate described abortion as “sacred” and promised to support legislation allowing abortion on demand “without any qualification whatsoever.”

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

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

Fetterman also supports a radical pro-abortion bill nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act that would force states to legalize abortion on demand and force taxpayers to pay for them. The bill would get rid of bans on sex-selection abortions and parental consent laws, and could force doctors and nurses to help abort unborn babies in violation of their beliefs.

Polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans, including many Democrat voters, support protections for unborn babies from abortion – especially after the first trimester. Most Americans also believe parents should be involved when their underage daughter wants an abortion, and they oppose their tax dollars being used for elective abortions.

Pennsylvania is a key swing state, and Democrats hope to gain another seat in the U.S. Senate with Fetterman. Polls show the Democrat candidate ahead, but Fetterman recently suffered a stroke and has struggled to speak at campaign events. Even major news outlets are raising questions about the Democrat’s health and ability to serve.

Currently, pro-abortion Democrats control the U.S. House and, more narrowly, the U.S. Senate. Election experts predict Republicans will win back the House in November, but whether Democrats will maintain control of the Senate remains uncertain.

Whoever wins the majority will determine the types of abortion legislation that Congress may pass in the near future, such as a national ban on abortions after 15 weeks on the pro-life side or taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy on the pro-abortion side.
