Former Biden White House Press Secretary turned MSNBC host Jen Psaki used one of her monologues on her Sunday afternoon show Inside With Jen Psaki to double down on her bald-faced lie that no one in the Democrat Party supports late-term abortions. Despite NewsBusters correcting her, she apparently felt comfortable to continue lying to her audience.
“No one is rooting for late-term abortions. No one is running on the platform of aborting viable babies. No one is selling late-term abortions as Ron DeSantis claims. No one,” Psaki falsely claimed. “Not Joe Biden, not Kamala Harris, not Hillary Clinton, not Nancy Pelosi, or any other politician demonized by the right-wing, roots for more late-term abortions. None of them do.”
Apparently, Psaki never read her party’s 2020 platform since if she did, she would know that not only are there no limits on abortions, they even seek taxpayer-funded abortions through a repeal of the Hyde Amendment.
“What is happening here is an attempt by Republican presidential candidates and other leaders who know their views on women’s healthcare are out of touch with the public,” Psaki continued.
She subsequently attempted to make Republicans seem like the heartless ones: “Are Ron DeSantis and Tim Scott in favor of a mother dying as a result of her pregnancy? If a doctor determines a baby cannot survive outside of the womb, should a mother be required to carry that baby to term?”
“Those choices should not be made by any politician or any legislator, they should be made by the woman carrying the baby and by her doctor. That is what Democrats are trying to protect, that is what they are for. This is not politics. This is health care,” Psaki falsely claimed.
No, killing a viable fully formed baby in the womb isn’t “health care.” It’s murder plain and simple.
