He’s portrayed in the news media as a blue collar “every man,” an average Joe in shorts and a hoodie who cares about the common man.

But U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman has extreme positions when it comes to the life issues.

Fetterman advocates for unfettered access to abortion. What this means from a practical standpoint is legal abortion during all nine months of pregnancy up to birth. 

The current Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor also opposes protecting babies from brutal dismemberment abortions, where they are torn limb by limb from the mother’s womb.

He would also have our hard-earned tax dollars pay for abortion—a stand opposed by the vast majority of Americans in national poll after national poll.

Fetterman regularly takes to the social media platform Twitter with his abortion-without-limits mantra.

In a tweet in June, Fetterman wrote: “We can’t wait. We need Democrats to vote like Democrats, scrap the filibuster, and pass the Women’s Health Protection Act.” 

The Women’s Health Protection Act is a deceptively labelled bill that would go far beyond Roe v. Wade, the tragic U.S. Supreme Court ruling which led to the deaths of more than 63 million American preborn babies. 

The Act would protect abortion, not women.

As National Right to Life has stated in its fact sheet on the subject:

“This bill would enshrine into law abortion-on-demand and would overturn existing pro-life laws and prevent new protective laws from being enacted at the state and federal levels. This bill seeks to strip away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their pre-natal development.”

Fetterman is far out of the mainstream when it comes to the issue of abortion. The people of Pennsylvania deserve a U.S. Senator who reflects their life-affirming values—not one who will cater to the whims of the mega abortion industry.
