Bernie unveils ‘reproductive justice’ plan: Taxpayer-funded abortion till birth

The socialist candidate promises to make contraception ‘free’ and available over-the-counter, pour money into Planned Parenthood, and codify abortion through birth into law.

(LifeSiteNews) – Democrat presidential contender and avowed socialist Senator Bernie Sanders has formally unveiled the abortion agenda he’s running on in 2020, collecting in a single location the various absolutist promises he has made to the abortion lobby.

The Vermont senator’s so-called “Reproductive Health Care and Justice for All” plan pledges to repeal the Hyde Amendment, thereby allowing direct funding of elective abortions with tax dollars; make contraception “free” and available over-the-counter; and “significantly” expand “funding for Planned Parenthood, Title X, and other initiatives” that offer and promote abortions.

Sanders would restore foreign aid to abortion organizations as well as the United Nations Population Fund; support codifying Roe v. Wade in federal law; ban abstinence-only sex education; and deny federal funding to crisis pregnancy centers that focus on alternatives to abortion. The document also promises to appoint pro-abortion ideologues to federal judgeships and touts Sanders’ 100% pro-abortion voting records with Planned Parenthood and NARAL.

Sanders will work “with reproductive justice and advocacy groups to fill vacancies with highly qualified, principled judges who will protect reproductive rights at every level,” he promises.

Though not explicitly listed in this document, Sanders has previously threatened that if elected, he would direct the U.S. Department of Justice to “go after those states” that restrict abortion “in every way that I legally can.”

In the document, Sanders also pledges to “require preclearance for state abortion laws to ensure that state laws do not impose undue restrictions and barriers for abortion services.”
