WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, Representative Dean Phillips (D-Minn.) announced his candidacy for president of the United States.
“Dean Phillips is Biden 2.0, a dyed-in-the-wool pro-abortion Democrat,” stated Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Dean Phillips supports unlimited abortion and has supported the most egregious pro-abortion legislation ever offered in Congress.”
Rep. Phillips is a member of the House Pro-Choice Caucus, voted for the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), supports tax-payer funding of abortion, and was endorsed by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
WHPA would enshrine into law abortion-on-demand and would overturn existing pro-life laws and prevent new protective laws from being enacted at the state and federal levels. This bill seeks to strip away from elected lawmakers the ability to provide even the most minimal protections for unborn children, at any stage of their pre-natal development.
“It’s unfortunate that Democrats who support reasonable limits on abortion have no candidate to support in the primary,” said Tobias. “Phillips is just as radical on abortion as Biden.”
