Democrat 2020 Presidential candidate and Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand stated that pro-life legislation that calls for the end to abortion is “against Christian faith.”
The comments were made on Thursday at the Georgia State House while surrounded by many pro-abortion activists and legislators.
“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will,” the Democrat said.
“One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort,” she added.
She failed to mention that one of the core principles of the Christian faith is “thou shall not murder.”
Gillibrand has also presented her three-step abortion plan: “Codify abortion across the country, end the Hyde amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, and guarantee reproductive healthcare in every state.”
She also stated that she would only appoint judges who support abortion along with the Roe v. Wade decision.
“Any Democrat who expects to win the presidency must answer definitively where they stand on this issue,” she said. She then went on to slam President Donald Trump.
“If this is a fight that President Trump wants, if this is a fight that he wants with the American people, if this is a fight he wants with America’s women,” Gillibrand stated regarding abortion. She then added “it is a fight he will have and it is a fight he will lose.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
A flurry of pro-life legislation has swept states across the nation since New York State celebrated the permission of abortion up until the moment of birth in January. On Wednesday, for example, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, a Republican, signed the nation’s more restrictive bill into law, outlawing the fatal procedure totally, save and exception for the life of the mother.
As reported earlier this week in The Daily Wire, Gillibrand has fingered sexism as the reason she’s been struggling in national polls. Currently, it’s unclear if she’ll have enough support to make the first Democratic primary debate stage, despite Sen. Cory Booker (D-CA) asking people to donate to his 2020 opponent.
“The Washington Free Beacon reports that Gillibrand, in a wide-ranging CNN profile, blamed Americans’ ‘bias against women’ for her own failure to achieve the two key milestones necessary to be part of the 2020 Democratic primary debates: at least 5% in national polls or 65,000 individual donors.”
“I think it’s just gender bias. I think people are generally biased against women. I think also biased against young women,” Gillibrand said. “There’s just bias and it’s real and it exists, but you have to overcome it.”
