Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has never been a moderate on the abortion issue. And as a candidate for president he would take those views to the White House.
He consistently has stood by the Democrats’ radical pro-abortion agenda, and rejected even moderate abortion regulations, such as a late-term abortion ban. All indications suggest he would continue to do so if elected president of the United States.
Sanders’ votes have been consistently pro-abortion when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable, defenselessness lives in America today.
In January 2018, he voted against a bill to ban late-term abortions — a bill that would have saved as many as 18,000 unborn babies from abortions every year. The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would have banned abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain.
The legislation had strong public support, but Sanders and his fellow Democrats killed it.Fifty-one senators (48 Republicans and three Democrats) voted to take the bill up for debate, but 60 votes were required to overcome Democrats’ filibuster.
Sanders’ famously couldn’t answer a question about if there was ever a time in pregnancy where he would ever limit abortions.
“Can you name a single circumstance at any point in a pregnancy in which you would be okay with abortion being illegal?” Bret Baier asked Sanders.
