The Democrats Who Want To Overturn Roe vs. Wade (HBO)



across the country today pro-abortion rights activists protested the recent wave of anti bortion laws passed by state legislatures across the South and Midwest the latest state to attack reproductive rights Louisiana a bill banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected usually around six weeks is working its way through the legislature there show me what solidarity looks like Louisiana's bill isn't the most extreme of the new laws that distinction still belongs to Alabama but it does stand out in one way it's sponsor a state senator named John Milkovich is a Democrat so is the Governor John bel Edwards who said that he'll sign the bill that's obviously not what you'd expect given that in this post Kavanagh world Democrats seem to be pushing out any wiggle room on limiting a woman's access to abortion there's certain room for any voter to have any personal view that they want but what I don't support is Democratic candidates who don't value women who don't believe that women are entitled to basic reproductive freedom civil rights and human rights but it turns out that there is a strand of the party that opposes abortion rights and we're not talking about people like Joe Biden or Tim Ryan whose positions on the issue have shifted over the years we're talking about Democrats who oppose abortion Kristin day is the director of Democrats for life of America Virginia organization that says it works to quote protect human life at all of its stages a good summary for us I think is we're pro-life for the whole life so from moon to tomb do you think that some of these other bills though in Alabama where there are no exceptions for rape or incest is that a good bill yeah I think it makes a lot of people uncomfortable does it make you uncomfortable you know a little bit only because I think we're it moves the focus away from a majority of abortions to this tiny subset but and also the fact that I have met children who were conceived in rape and they're really very happy to be here you know it's a very sensitive and emotional time and topic it's all the purpose of it is to go to the Supreme Court and try to challenge it sure but it still sends a message to the women in Alabama though yes it does but it also I think it opens the conversation about when does life begin and if a child is conceived in rape is that child still worth protecting why are you a pro-life democrat I believe the government does have a responsibility to care for those who need assistance and the Democratic Party has been more in line with providing for social programs that support those who need assistance though and so that is probably the main reason why I went on that trajectory I spoke with Kirsten Gillibrand and she said there is no room in the Democratic Party for pro-life democrats what is your response to someone like that she's trying to make the party smaller and that's a mistake again I mean she's coming from a perspective of New York and New York in California don't represent the rest of the views of the country and so but if you get rid of the pro-life democrats what happens usually is they're replaced with republicans so is that what she wants in the rest of the country because I mean that's not going to be a very popular result the 2020 Democratic field right now has more than 20 candidates is there anyone that you can support right now in that field of the major candidates there is nobody in the field right now that is actually trying to get our vote Joe Biden he says he now opposes the Hyde Amendment in the past he had said that he does not support federal funding of abortions do you think that he was a pro-life democrat I thought he could provide a more central and moderate position on abortion so it's hugely disappointed to see him try to cater to the abortion lobby so then what do you do I think we keep weather we do a write-in campaign whether we don't vote in 2016 a lot of pro-life Democrats did not vote and I don't want to see the Democratic Party make that mistake again would you rather see Donald Trump re-elected in 2020 than to see a Democrat become the president you know that's a that's a very tough question because if all the pro-life democrats go and vote for this candidate who's going to support abortion they're gonna take us for continue to take us for granted and our votes for granite so we do have to make a stand and say that we are not going to continue to support a party that doesn't want us you

    Sorry, but the interviewer clearly had her ass handed to her by the woman interviewed. It was actually entertaining to see the blonde's classical PC shit mentality which cannot comprehend that other people can think differently than her.

    Abortion is killing baby's. If there is a heart beat it's a living being.

    It’s not “healthcare”. It’s not not “pro-choice” It is “pro-murder” as an excuse for irresponsible sexual contact. People, if you don’t want babies….Use contraceptives, get tied, snipped or fixed even use NATURAL planning. What?? Natural planning take too much work & brains to figure out?
    BTW- There’s also use of intelligence and morals to wait for a “real love committed relationship” and marriage. Everyone already has reproductive rights and a brain…that does not include killing. BE responsible!
    This is NOT the 1960s people! Get off the drugs and Free lovin’ isn’t free- diseases, viruses, warts…(Gross) ..,and death of innocent life for lack of human discipline. Grow up people! Better yet, grow a conscience. We all get one life…oops…except that one that you just pro-chose to abort…is that fair?

    People who are calling out pro-lifers for “only caring about the baby inside the womb” need to stop. It’s annoying. Pro-lifers are actually pro-choice we believe in 3 choices, abstinence, contraceptives, and adoption. The fourth choice would be abortion, but since that’s literal murder we don’t support it. And fun fact there’s a difference between adoption and foster care. Adoption is what happens when a woman is pregnant and cannot for whatever reason raise the child. So she can go to one of many organizations that would help a woman though this difficult time in her life and she can find parents who are ready to adopt as soon as the child is born, it’s not that hard. Fun fact! There are roughly 2 million couples waiting to adopt in the US which means there’s about 36 parents to one child. Foster care is what happens when the baby is born, taken home with the parents, and the parents cannot take care of it but don’t put it up for adoption so then the government has to take it. 🙂 So when y’all say that we don’t care about the baby after birth it doesn’t make any sense because we support adoption, not foster care.

    The sheer number of abortions betray a profoundly sloppy application of birth control. It if comes down to it, there's also the morning after pill.

    Roe was an incredible exercise in legalese bullshit. Abortion exists no where in the Constitution, and to the extend any founding documents are invoked, the right to, "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…" in the Declaration of Independence would, if anything, tilt against easy abortion.
    Not a single protester for abortion is the product of pro-choice. They are de-facto benefactors of a pro-life decision by their mother.

    Once upon a time, you had a right to exist…now thanks to some really warped and selfish thinking you exist at the whim of what should be your Mother.

    I'm pro choice. You can choose to have no sex or safe sex. I don't see millions of married women waiting in line to get abortions. They're married, when they get pregnant it's a joyful time. People act as though women get pregnant by accident, like catching a cold.

    So, the victim is forced to give birth and raise a child from being raped? What a constant reminder of the incident & slap in the face to the woman. Ridiculous!

    So does she mean that she supports taking care of women and children? Healthcare, education, housing, nutrition….do these things count in the “womb to tomb?”

    "Why are you a pro-life democrat?" – This question highlights a huge issue with the USA. Red or blue, people blindly fall into their respective lines and struggle to comprehend when someone actually has opinions that traverse both the left & right.

    America needs to Legalize Late Term Abortions only on Liberals. A bill that say we can Abort someone no matter their age at the first signs of being a Liberal. Liberals should have no problem with that being that they are all about people that are Vegetables or Braindead being put down. This is no different being All Liberals are 100% Braindead and incapable of making logical decisions. Liberals are just horrible horrible people. A world without Liberals would be a beautiful place

    This shit makes me too angry. I'm gonna come out and say that I got pregnant in my early twenties with a man who was physically and emotionally abusive to me. Who knows where I would be if I didn't have that abortion. I might still be with him. I might still be a battered anorexic severely depressed agoraphobic helpless scared little girl. But because I had that abortion, I ended up leaving him and figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. Figuring out what I wanted to go to school for. Started going to community college full-time and getting straight A's. Learning new coping skills and how to love and get along with my parents. It's fair game to say that possibly none of that would have happened if I had a kid with that guy. How dare anyone say that a woman shouldn't have the right to turn her life around. How dare they.

    So long was women have the "right" to biological abortions, I think that men should have the right to financial abortions. That is to say, so long as a woman can say "I'm not going to have this baby regardless of what anyone says", then a man should be able to say "I'm not going to pay for this baby regardless of what anyone says". If women don't want the child then the man loses out on being a father. If a woman wants the child then the man is forced into being a father (either personally or financially). Where is the man's choice? Where's the pro-choice aspect here? Reproductive rights? It's not right to say that it takes two to make a baby but only one gets any say in what happens next.

    There are way more pro-life leaning democrats than people seem to believe, but they just aren't in the spotlight. The same way that there are plenty of pro-choice republicans, but they just aren't in the spotlight. People are not as black and white as the parties want them to be.

    the south is vindicating itself for the atrocities of slavery. and the coasts are earning the title of closed-minded barbarians because they dismember and discard babies simply because they don't want them. even the ancient barbarians only discriminated against babies with defects. what the radicals are doing is mind boggling considering the endless ways we now have to prevent pregnancies. they are looking like a dumb sex-crazed cult.

    That bit at the end was some Grade A stupid though. "Yeah, if we don't get a pro-life Democrat, we'll probably not vote. We'll allow Trump to be re-elected so he can fill the Federal benches with corporate judges who'll strike down consumer safety and environmental regulations making life miserable for the born and even worse for those yet to be born."

    The people at the Supreme Court are all either paid protestors or rich people who don't work. Kristen Day represents actual voting Americans who have long-held values.

    This is much ado about nothing and a total waste of time. None of these news laws will be enforced and will be thrown out by the first court they see. They will die there because the supreme court will never look at any of them, they are far too radical for close examination.
