Default Bernie Sanders Excommunicates Pro-Life Democrats: Being Pro-Choice Is ‘Absolutely Ess

Bernie Sanders Excommunicates Pro-Life Democrats: Being Pro-Choice Is ‘Absolutely Essential’
By Emily Zanotti
DailyWire.com

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) closed the door on pro-life Democrats Saturday night at a presidential forum called “Our Rights, Our Courts,” hosted by the Demand Justice Initiative, the Center for Reproductive Rights and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

The forum was focused on so-called “reproductive rights” per New Hampshire Democratic National Committee members Kathy Sullivan and Bill Shaheen, according to local media in the state, giving candidates the opportunity to speak on “the threat to our courts and our reproductive rights,” per an interview Sullivan gave with WMUR.

Every candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination expressed unqualified support for abortion rights during the four-hour event, but Sanders was confronted, pointedly, about the “problem” of Democrats who are committed to opposing abortion, many of whom have expressed support for the Vermont socialist.

He was brutal in his answer: pro-life Democrats have no place in the party.


Asked if there is “such a thing as a pro-life Democrat in your vision for the party,” Sanders answered that, “I think being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat.”

At this point in the nation’s history, Sanders added, he cannot see an argument for opposing abortion rights. “[W]hen we talk about what a Democrat is, being pro-choice is essential to that vision,” Sanders added.

“If you’re asking me – and I think I may be wrong on this – I think in the Senate, probably 95 percent of the Democrats are pro-choice, the other few are not. In the House, maybe even a higher percentage” he said. “So that’s kind of what my view is.”

He went on to suggest that his campaign is a “big tent” and that he wouldn’t turn supporters away, though he seemed to suggest that pro-life views would be personally abhorrent.

Later on, Sanders told the audience that his “Medicare for All” plan would cover abortions at taxpayers’ expense: “And by the way, just so we are clear on this one, if this on anybody’s mind. When we wrote the Medicare for All bill there was a lot of debate in our office with the people we work with – should we make certain in our Medicare for All bill that abortion rights were cemented right in there. We did it. It’s in there.”

Sanders was elaborating on a statement he made Saturday morning on Twitter, momentarily abrogating his anti-capitalist views to embrace corporate welfare for the nation’s largest abortion provider, posting that, “We have got to codify Roe v. Wade into law and significantly expand funding for Planned Parenthood.”

Other candidates avoided making bright line distinctions for pro-life Democrats. Even former South Bend mayor, Pete Buttigieg who has, in the past, said pro-lifers have no role to play in the Democratic party, was hesitant to excommunicate them altogether.

“This is a moment when I would like to see as many people voting with our side as possible,” Buttigieg said, sidestepping the issue. Just days ago, though, Buttigieg refused to limit abortion at any time in a woman’s pregnancy — a policy position only about 13% of Americans hold, according to Catholic News Agency.

I've said for years that if you cast your vote for a democrat, you lose your soul.

Everything about the democrat platform is evil, and they prove me right every day by committing the most brutal killings you can imagine.

Just using common sense...Doesn't it seem unnatural that the Dumacrats are so driven to kill babies. According to their present leader in the presidential race, there is not to even be a discussion as to whether these "unwanted" babies should even be allowed to live !

Why doesn't a mature man like Bernie, or mature woman like Liz Warren, counsel self control and responsibility by their adherents ?

...Or is it a hallmark of Democrats, that they have little or no, self control?

There are many ways to help abolish this demonic practice.. Here are some;

We can't all do everything, but we each can do something !

I have helped an unwed mother's hspice for years..even having provided them a unique way to raise funds.

How else can any Christian help in a major way ? Easy; do your best to fulfill the "great commission".. Stats say a youngster brought under the instruction and

mentorship of Christianity, are not near as likely to turn up pregnant as the unsaved. ..But if they do, they are not so likely to kill their baby, so keep on proselytizing !

Or, just keep speaking up about this evil practice...to anyone who will listen!

Yeah but just think what this world would be like if Hillary, Nancy, Chuck, Joe, Bernie, Pete, Michael...........had all been aborted? God has grace for those that haven't reached the age of accountability so they would all be in heaven....as I see it, they done missed their chance.

Another twist. We want dominance at the ballot box right? If the dems keep killing off their young and Republicans keep them alive then we ortsta outnumber them at the ballot box in a generation or two...don'tcha think?

Ok that was just wind whistling in one ear and out the other. I am 100% pro life!

Sorry, but that won't work..even though the Dumacrats are killing theirs...they are doing their level best to illegally import foreigners to replace and overcome native Americans..
