Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley wants to become the next Democrat Women’s Caucus leader so she can push to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions across the U.S.

Axios Boston reports Pressley, a progressive Democrat from Massachusetts, is running for caucus chair in January when Republicans take control of the U.S. House.

Abortion is a top issue on her agenda. She supports forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions and opposes any restrictions on abortion, even on viable, late-term babies.

In a letter last month to her fellow lawmakers, Pressley promised to “defend women’s issues from the ongoing attacks from those across the aisle,” and slammed pro-life Republicans as “extremists [who] pose serious threats to the rights of every woman that calls this country home.”

If elected, the pro-abortion Democrat leader said she would work closely with the Progressive Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus on ways to circumvent Republican leadership and expand abortions. One of those ways would include pressuring President Joe Biden to sign more executive orders.

“There’s an opportunity certainly in the next two years to make sure we’re offering a clear affirmation of who Democrats are and part of that is working closely with the White House,” Pressley said.

She wants to use “the power of advocacy to push for an agenda of executive action with the Biden administration to help ensure the women’s issues don’t get left on the cutting-room floor there,” she continued.

According to Variety:

When it comes to being in the minority, Pressley is clear-eyed on the challenges Democrats will face. If elected to chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, she intends to flex her concurrent membership on both the progressive and Black caucuses to create a powerful coalition and voting bloc. But it is not lost on her that Republicans’ edge in the House will hinder her hopes. Democrats, she explained, will need to use every tool at their disposal—notably, the power of the pen. Pressley has met with both Vice President Kamala Harris and Health and Human Services secretary Xavier Becerra on abortion access to discuss the adminsitration’s options post-Roe.

Pressley claims abortion is a women’s issue, but many women oppose the killing of unborn babies in abortions and are leaders in the pro-life movement, including in Congress. Abortion is a human rights issue that concerns everyone, because it destroys the most fundamental right of all: an unborn baby’s right to life.

Polls consistently show Americans support legal protections for unborn babies, especially after the first trimester or once their heartbeat is detectable. LifeNews recently highlighted 14 recent polls here. Additionally, a September poll from the Trafalgar Group found stronger public support for Republican-led pro-life legislation to ban abortions after 15 weeks than for a Democrat-backed bill that would allow abortions “at any time during pregnancy.”
