Mandela Barnes supports sex-based abortions

Empower Wisconsin  | May 12, 2022

MADISON — U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) may dodge uncomfortable questions on his party’s sweeping abortion-on-demand bill, but liberal U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes is more than happy to answer. He’s all in on everything abortion, including aborting the unborn based on their sex.

Schumer’s so-called Women’s Health Protection Act went down in flames in the Senate Wednesday, as it was expected to do. The 49-51 defeat marked the second time the Senate rejected the far left abortion measure, with Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia joining all Republicans. U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Madison), an abortion rights extremist, voted lock step with her party.

As Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Oshkosh) put it after casting his vote against, “Democrat elected officials and the radical left have proven they are the extremists on the profound moral issue of abortion.”

“Chuck Schumer’s legislation would eviscerate state pro-life laws nationwide, prohibit virtually any restriction or requirement for abortion and allow almost unlimited abortion up to the moment of birth,” Johnson said.

There are a lot of things in this maximum abortion bill that most Americans don’t know about, including language that would prohibit state laws banning sex-selective abortions — “the killing of baby girls in the womb because they are girls.”

“The WHPA’s overly broad language far exceeds Roe by striking down state laws such as those that require certain materials to be given to the patient, prohibit sex-based abortions, or require parental or guardian notification for minors seeking an abortion,” tweeted Sen.Susan Collins (R-Maine), by no means a hard-line opponent of Roe v. Wade.

Earlier this week, Schumer snidely dismissed a question about his bill and sex-based abortions.

“Look our law is very very simple: it keeps Roe in place, it keeps the protections that have been added to make sure Roe is kept in place is there. Period. Yes. Next…” the Democrat said, quickly moving on to the next question.

Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, one of the leading candidates in a crowded field of Democrats running to unseat Johnson, has been clear on his full-throated support for maximum abortion rights.

In an interview last week with Spectrum News, Barnes defended Gov. Tony Evers veto of a bill that would “prohibit abortions based on a fetus’ sex, race or national origin.”

“Fortunately, we had the Governor in place who vetoed the bills that were introduced by Republican lawmakers,” said the lieutenant governor, who has spent much of his time in office campaigning for the Senate.  “But again, the moment is now for us to do something. There is no reason with the President, the House, and the Senate that we don’t have Roe codified into law.”

As National Review’s John McCormack has noted, backers of Schumer’s bill are supporting:

› A right to abortion through nine months of pregnancy in all 50 states.

› The elimination of all state laws on abortion, including parental consent laws supported by 70 percent of Americans.

› The gutting of conscience and religious liberty protections

› Creation of the right for non-doctors to perform abortions.

“If I were in the Senate today, I would vote to make Roe law. Period,” Barnes texted Wednesday.

    What part of murder isn’t murder. You can go to jail for mistreating an animal but can kill a baby every day of the week. It’s not only immoral it is illegal. California wants to make it legal to kill a baby up to 28 days after a natural birth. What part of that seems christian or moral.
