Finally! One Democrat, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Admits Late-Term Abortion is “Basically Killing a Child” 

It turns out that supporting the death of children up until birth under the guise of “choice” doesn’t go well among many voters. Former Democrat, now Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently found this out when he said last week that late-term abortion should be a mother’s “choice.” During an interview with podcaster Sage Steele, Kennedy stated, “I think we have to leave it to the women rather than the state.” 

Even his running mate, Nicole Shanahan, was taken aback by his comments, stating in an interview that, “My understanding with Bobby’s position is that, you know, every abortion is a tragedy, is a loss of life. My understanding is that he absolutely believes in limits on abortion, and we’ve talked about this. I do not think, I don’t know where that came from.” 

But in a shock turn of events, this former Democrat walked back his statements after realizing late-term abortions indeed do exist. RFK Jr. wrote a statement on Twitter, reading: 

 “Abortion has been a notoriously divisive issue in America, but actually I see an emerging consensus — abortion should be legal up until a certain number of weeks and restricted thereafter. Even in the reddest of red states, voters reject total abortion bans. And on the other end, almost no one supports gruesome third-trimester abortions except to save the life of the mother. 

Cases like this are why I am leery of inserting the government into abortion. I had been assuming that virtually all late-term abortions were such cases, but I’ve learned that my assumption was wrong. Sometimes, women abort healthy, viable late-term fetuses. These cases of purely ‘elective’ late-term abortion are very upsetting. Once the baby is viable outside the womb, it should have rights and it deserves society’s protection.” 

Kennedy explained his new pivot to comedians Shane Gillis and Matt McCusker. Yes, RFK Jr. late-term abortions happen often and are inhumane – the procedure brutally kills a child through cruel means, and sometimes, if the abortion goes wrong, the child is born alive. Who protects them then? Students for Life of America (SFLA) covered this process extensively. It’s a two-day process. Before the late-term abortion, a mother will go to the abortion facility to “prepare her body” for this brutal killing of the baby, as well as the trauma caused to her body. Like when giving birth, the abortionist will dilate her cervix. Unlike giving birth and life, the “doctor” instead puts a deadly needle of the fatal Digoxin into the baby’s heart. Sometimes, they bleed to death, but if it’s successful, the mother will give birth to her dead child with the help of Misoprostol to expel her baby.

Despite 70% of late-term abortionists report they can’t ensure “fetal demise” before the abortion, this fact is hardly acknowledged by pro-abortion Democrats. Biden’s Former Press Secretary, now NBC News Anchor, Jenn Psaki said that “No one supports abortion up until birth,” but as SFLA President Kristan Hawkins pointed out, many Democrats can’t name a single limit they support.

While the consistent abortion position is protecting life at conception, we’re glad RFK Jr. is waking up to reality and realizing late-term abortion isn’t only common, but barbaric. And hopefully, as he continues to listen and learn, he’ll fully join the pro-life side of protecting all life.
