Bernie Sanders defends abortion while calling for socialist values at Liberty University

Posted in Bernie Sanders with tags , , on September 18, 2015 by saynsumthn

Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders spoke at a Christian University this week and was asked about his support for abortion.

Sanders began his speech at Liberty University Lynchburg, VA. by acknowledging that he had a different view on abortion than most of the students.

“I came here today, because I believe at the bottom of my heart that it is vitally important for those of us who hold different views to engage in civil discourse,” he began saying it was important to find common ground.

In his speech, Sanders said the Golden Rule summed up his view of how you should treat people, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” he said.

Reading from Amos, Sanders called for all people to be treated with respect and dignity. Yet, abortion rips the unborn child apart and, if the child is killed inside Planned Parenthood, their body parts could be harvested.

The common man Trojan horse candidate quoted several scriptures to promote his socialist views while ignoring some of the most obvious ones on the taking of human life.

On health care and so-called morality, Sanders stated, “When we talk about morality, what we are talking about is all of God’s children. The poor, the wretched, they have a right to go to a doctor when they are sick.”

His definition of family values was not to advocate protecting life inside and outside the womb but to push for paid medical leave, allowing mothers to stay home after birth:

    In my view there is no justice when low income and working class mothers are forced to separate from their babies 1 or 2 weeks after birth and go back to work because they need the money that their jobs provide,” the pro-abortion candidate added.

    “All of us believe in family values…But, it is not a family value when all of you know, that the most important moments in time of a human beings life, is the first weeks and months after that baby is born. That is the moment when mother bonds with the baby….that is what a family is about…The United States of America is the only country on earth that does not provide paid medical leave.”

Sanders failed to note that the most important time in a baby’s life is the time he is vulnerable to death from abortion.

The Democrat Senator who is polling well against Hillary Clinton for the party nomination did Q&A following his remarks and was asked how he can promote abortion while saying he prioritizes children.

“You’ve talked in your campaign how it’s immoral protect the billionaire class at the expense of the most vulnerable in society – the children.

“A majority of Christians would agree with you but would also go further and say that children in the womb need our protection even more.

“How do you reconcile to two in your mind?” Sanders was asked.

Sanders response appeared very defensive,
“Understand, this is an area where we disagree,” Sanders stated.

    “I do understand and I do believe that it is improbable for the United States government or state government to tell every woman in this country the very painful and difficult choice that she has to make on that issue.

    “And, I honestly don’t want to be too provocative here but very often Conservatives say ‘get the government out of my life.’ I don’t want the government telling me what to do. But on this very sensitive issue on which this nation is divided – a lot of people agree with you – a lot of people agree with me.

    “But my view is, I respect absolutely a family that says no we are not going to have an abortion. I understand that – I respect that. I would hope that other people respect the very painful and difficult choice that many women feel they have to make and don’t want the government telling them what they have to do.”

On Kyle Olson, ventured to a union event in the blue-collar town of Muskegon, Michigan to gauge members’ tastes in presidential candidates.

Muskegon is middle America — the “middle of the middle,” one person said.

Olson talked to several people at the Muskegon, Michigan Labor Day Union Parade!

The Parade, which is only two union-focused Labor Day parades in the state of Michigan, consisted of over 800 participants and 42 labor unions, non-profits, veterans groups and local politicians.

Hillary has promoted herself as an advocate for women yet some Michigan union parade goers are opposed to Hillary for president saying they do not trust her.

Olson asked parade attendees, many of them women, “What do you think of Hillary Clinton?”

Some told Olson they supported her others seemed to be past supporters who have changed their minds on voting for her.

“I would probably end up voting for Hillary, but I am interested in a lot of the things Bernie Sanders is saying,” said one Hillary supporter.

Another added, “I voted in the primaries last time around for Hillary, I was a Hillary supporter. She’s disappointed me a little bit. I think she’s waffled on some things…” Those things included gay marriage and abortion.

One woman derided Hillary Clinton as changing her mind and added that she doesn’t trust her.

“I don’t trust her at all – I just don’t – she changes her mind every minute. She plays a lot of underhanded games. I think she could do it, I don’t think that I want her to do it,” she said.

A man attending the union day parade said he was for Hillary because he felt she could glean experience from former president and her husband, Bill Clinton in a co-presidency type of role.

The Planned Parenthood prez also saluted Pennsylvania’s Governor for having been an abortion clinic escort, as she did back in January when Tom Wolf took office.

Richards called Gov Wolf, “the first governor in the history of the country who was also a former Planned Parenthood clinic escort.”

What she failed to say is that Pennsylvania was also the home of doctor, Kermit Gosnell who is serving time in prison for snipping the spinal cords of babies he delivered and then killed at his rarely inspected House of Horrors abortion clinic.

In fact, it was the “Progressives” in the state which failed to inspect and investigate Gosnell – then after his atrocities came to the light of day they all ran for cover to denounce him.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was also at the event.
