2% O’Rourke is continuing his crusade to legalize infanticide, which may soon by the official platform of the Democratic Party, recently telling someone at his event that he believes abortion the day before a baby is due should be legal as a ‘woman’s right.’

O’Rourke, who is failing badly in the polls, is looking for anything to rally his base (you can watch as a group of what looks like college students cheer when he endorses what’s basically infanticide), and he believes that saying he loves abortion will help.
Unfortunately for Beto, he’s probably not going to be president, especially since only 7% of Millennials support unlimited abortion, on-demand, and at taxpayer expense, according to our Institute for Pro-Life Advancement.
Washingtonexaminer.com notes, “O’Rourke served in Congress from 2013 to 2019 and had a 100% voting record from NARAL, a national abortion rights group. Late-term abortion has been in the dialogue after Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam was attacked by President Trump and others after controversial comments regarding state legislation supporting the procedure.”
In April 2019, I wrote of the full support for infanticide by many of the Democratic candidates for President:
- All Democratic Senators, including independent Bernie Sanders, voted against Ben Sasse’s Born-Alive legislation. As Ben Sasse pointed out in an op-ed, “That’s simply the bare minimum in humane treatment, and every Republican and Democrat should be able to affirm it. It’s not complicated: You’re either with babies, or you’re for infanticide. But some Senate Democrats blocked this anti-infanticide legislation — some of the same politicians who consistently promise to fight for the weak, the vulnerable and the voiceless. We weren’t talking about abortion, “special circumstances,” “clumps of cells.” We were talking about infanticide, about a newborn baby boy or baby girl, alone and cold on an abortion-clinic table.”
- Beto O’Rourke, a former Congressman from Texas who is most famous for losing a Senate race to Ted Cruz in 2018, has repeatedly said that he opposes legislation such as the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, calling third-trimester abortions a women’s right.
At the time, Michele Hendrickson, our Eastern Regional Director said, “The Democratic Party’s extremism on abortion is alienating voters like myself who hold generally liberal views on issues like the environment, economics, and education, but are pro-life. Their extremism and contradictory views on helping marginalized people push away voters like myself who rarely have an opportunity to vote for a pro-life Democrat.”
