NRL President Carol Tobias: “Robert F. Kennedy Jr. supports unlimited abortion throughout pregnancy and he wants taxpayer dollars to pay for it”

This week, third party presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. added to his portfolio on the abortion issue. He offers some items that pro-lifers would agree with, some they would not.

But what cannot be missed is that there is no backing off from his promise to “safeguard women’s reproductive rights.”

Ryan Foley, who writes for the Christian Post headlined his story “RFK Jr. unveils new abortion platform: ‘More choices, more life.”’ He talked with pro-life leaders, including NRL President Carol Tobias.

Mrs. Tobias pulled no punches. She told Foley

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. supports unlimited abortion throughout pregnancy and he wants taxpayer dollars to pay for it. He does not believe states should be able to protect preborn children at any stage of development and supports tax funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain.”

 

“It is hypocritical, then, to pretend to care about helping women in difficult circumstances when those same women are being encouraged by a culture that tells them to kill their children. Far better are the candidates who care about, and are willing to help, both mother and child.”

National Right to Life outlined Kennedy’s position on abortion at “Where Does Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Stand on Abortion?” here.

Foley wrote about Kennedy’s possible impact on the presidential race:

The RealClearPolitics average of polls asking voters who they would support in a five-way race, based on surveys taken from March 27-April 18, shows Kennedy capturing 8.8% of the vote, coming in far behind Trump’s 41.6% and Biden’s 40.6%, while finishing ahead of independent candidate Cornel West’s 1.7% and potential Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s 1.0%.
