Pro-abortion Sen. Amy Klobuchar is not “Minnesota Nice” to unborn babies

Same abortion-on-demand, paid for by taxpayers,  as the rest of the Democrats running for President

I’m from Minnesota, and when we go back home once or twice a year, there is a favorite little restaurant we patronize at least twice every visit. It’s an incredible coincidence, but I have seen pro-abortion Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Mn.) there on multiple occasions. 

Whatever stories you or I may hear about how she treats her staff (all my information is second-hand), when I watch her respond as people approach her, I understand why the label “Minnesota Nice” is often attached to her.

Unfortunately, none of that Minnesota magic rubs off in her attitude toward unborn babies.  Tip of the hat goes out to Micaiah Bilger for a story she posted today that reminds of that . 

For the briefest moment on Thursday, I saw that Sen. Klobuchar was appearing in a Fox News Town Hall meeting. I wish I had watched.

Bilger tells us that although Sen. Klobuchar was not able to vote this week on the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (she’s busy running for President), she told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, “I would have voted with the Democrats.”

As NRL News Today has explained in multiple posts, virtually every Senate Democrats voted against ending a filibuster. (“Invoking closure” requires 60 votes.) Had they been successful, they might have been able to force Democrats to explain why it is they believe it is perfectly acceptable to kill unborn babies capable of experiencing unfathomable pain as they are killed. 

Bilger writes

When host Martha MacCallum asked her when life begins, Klobuchar refused to say.

“I follow Roe v. Wade,” she replied, “and what Roe v. Wade allows for is the protection of a woman’s decision to make a decision about her own life, and of course by the third trimester there is some limits on that.”

What “limits”? To the best of my knowledge, Sen. Klobuchar has never spelled them out. Even if she had (or does), they would be instantly swallowed up by the all-purpose rationale that the abortion would be okay if it posed a threat to the woman’s “health” (globally defined, of course, to include everything and anything). 

“MacCallum responded by pointing out that American abortion laws are radical compared to most other countries, the U.S. being one of only seven countries that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks,” according to Bilger. “Klobuchar replied by defending late-term abortions again, saying, ‘I think the vast majority of Americans support Roe v. Wade.’”

That is poppycock, boilerplate pro-abortion talking points which we have disproved countless times before. The real question is, in this case, does the American public support aborting pain-capable unborn children? Of course not, which is why pro-abortion Democrats are desperate to keep the issue out of sight.

Sen. Klobuchar ‘s calling card is that she is a kind of centrist, a “moderate.” But if you want to understand how radical on abortion Sen. Klobuchar is, read the interview she gave to Cosmopolitan.
