Where 2020 Democrats stand on abortion

Looks like they are all coming around to full unrestricted abortion rights and federally funded abortions. Everyone is in line now.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, of South Bend, Indiana, attended a rally in front of the Supreme Court last month in protest of newly passed state laws that ban abortions. Several of the measures prohibit the procedure as soon as cardiac activity is detected. Alabama’s law, the most extreme recent legislation, bans abortion in nearly all cases at any point during a pregnancy.


Cory Booker

Hours before Biden reversed his stance on the Hyde amendment at the DNC African American Leadership Summit in Atlanta, Booker told the same groupthat the Hyde amendment was an “assault on African American women.” He has promised to repeal the amendment in his first budget as president.

Cory wants to make sure black women can kill their kids off.

Former US Vice-President Joe Biden has reversed his stance on abortion funding amid mounting criticism from his fellow 2020 Democratic rivals.
Good boy ..Joe. Flip flop on what few convictions you had.

It will be interesting to see how democrats deal with late term abortion. Will they all align together to enhance electability?

Abortion is a currently a legal medical procedure in the US, as it is in most other modern, civilized nations. Humans have had abortions since before we even had modern medicine. When abortion was illegal, people got illegal abortions. So long as abortion is legal, it shouldn't be treated as if it were criminal behavior.

Opposing the extreme right-wing outright outlawing of abortion altogether is not the extreme position you paint it as. Your attribution is dishonest.

Bills dictating at heartbeat abortions end, is not the same as zero abortions. It appears democrats are all aligning themselves to favor very liberal policies on abortion as a political necessity. Now they are all favoring federally paid for abortions.

If liberals want abortion clinics as numerous as 7-11's and anything goes, I won't get in their way. It's their desire.

Early Wednesday morning, Booker released plans to create a “White House Office of Reproductive Freedom” on day one of his presidency, if he were elected, “charged with coordinating and affirmatively advancing abortion rights and access to reproductive health care across.” Mike Gravel's campaign told BuzzFeed News that he believes "all obstrecticians [sic] looking to obtain a license must be willing to perform abortions to attain licensure." More than half the candidates have said that they want to repeal the Hyde Amendment, the law that prevents federal funding from going toward abortion. (That list includes Sanders, Gillibrand, Warren, Booker, Ryan, Bennet, Harris, Steve Bullock, Andrew Yang, Pete Buttigieg, Jay Inslee, Eric Swalwell, and Julián Castro).

Ob's must perform abortions in order to be licensed......wow!

South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sunday declined to endorse any state-imposed limits on abortion, including those that take place in the third trimester, telling the audience at a Fox News town hall that the decision should always be left up to the mother.

Asked by Fox News’ Chris Wallace if he believed there should be “any limit on a woman’s right to have an abortion,” the upstart Democratic presidential contender argued that focusing on the stage of gestation at which a fetus can be aborted is misguided.

“No, I think the dialogue has gotten so caught up on where you draw the line, that we’ve gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line, and I trust women to draw the line when it’s their life,” Buttigieg answered.

Wallace then asked about abortion in the third trimester before quickly dismissing Buttigieg’s suggestion that the question was “hypothetical” by pointing out that roughly 6,000 third-trimester abortions occurred last year.


Will all of them follow along with 3rd trimester abortion rights?
