Washington, D.C.Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America responded to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s statement in an interview that he supports a federal limit on abortion at or around three months of pregnancy:

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s stated position is a stark contrast to the Democratic Party’s radical stance of abortion on demand, with no protection for babies in the womb or their mothers, right up to the end of pregnancy. It recalls a party that most of its leaders today, including Joe Biden before he caved to the extreme Left, have abandoned – one that believed, or at least claimed to believe, that abortion should be ‘rare,’” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Seven in 10 Americans, including millions of rank-and-file Democrats, support limiting abortion to the first three months of pregnancy at most. A solid majority agrees Congress should act to protect babies when science shows they feel pain at 15 weeks. While pro-life advocates ultimately want every child protected under our laws, Kennedy is one of the few prominent Democrats aligned with the consensus of the people today. Every candidate should be asked, ‘Where do you draw the line?’

“Pro-life Americans are looking for a national defender of life who will boldly champion unborn children and women and work to gather support in Congress. Voters deserve clarity about where every candidate stands on the human rights issue of our time.”

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
