Standing with America’s Top Abortion Advocates, Catholic Senator and Democratic VP Pick Chooses Politics Over Life

 Washington, D.C.Tonight, Tim Kaine’s remarks further solidified his disregard for pro-life values and support for the abortion industry. His speech, the same night as NARAL President, Ilyse Hogue, and the night after Planned Parenthood President, Cecile Richards, show his deep betrayal of previously professed pro-life convictions in the wake of his new campaign role.

“Sadly, the Democratic Party now calls for abortion on demand, at taxpayer expense and with no regard for the mother,” said Tom McClusky of March for Life Action. The presumptive Vice Presidential nominee’s ‘change of heart’ in agreeing to overturn the Hyde amendment, which prohibits some taxpayer funding of abortion, coupled with the primetime speech last night from Cecile Richards, President of our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is a clear message to those who wish to protect life and defend the defenseless unborn – you have no home here in the Democratic Party.”

“Not only is this perspective lacking integrity but it is very much out of line with the American people. 78% of Americans wants restrictions on abortion, per a recent Marist poll.”

Pro-life Democrat, the late Governor Bob Casey, and the last pro-life Governor allowed to speak at a Democratic Convention said; “The advocates of abortion on demand falsely assume two things: that women must suffer if the lives of unborn children are legally protected and that women can only attain equality by having the legal option of destroying their innocent offspring in the womb.”

“Unfortunately, the Democratic Party no longer allows the sentiments of people such as Bob Casey Sr. to be heard and instead has moved to the extreme position of abortion on demand, without apology, espoused by Hillary Clinton, Cecile Richards, and Barack Obama,” said McClusky.

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
