WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivered the following remarks today on the Senate floor regarding radical pro-abortion legislation:
“With a cascade of major crises testing our country, Senate Democrats are prioritizing a show vote on mandating nine months of abortion on demand across America.
“Senate Democrats want to go on the record supporting the radical and massively unpopular proposition that we should have functionally no restrictions on abortion whatsoever.
“Democrats already have the United States one of just seven nations in the entire world that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks. This radical fringe policy places us in company such as China and North Korea. But now Senate Democrats want to go even further than Chairman Xi and Kim Jong-Un.
“91% of Americans support some restrictions on abortion during the third trimester.
“The public overwhelmingly disagrees with Democrats’ extreme obsession on this issue.
“But yet again, our colleagues wish to demonstrate that the radical left fringe runs today’s Democratic Party.
“As the world prays for Ukraine and debates consequences for Putin… as American families contend with violent crime, open borders, and runaway inflation… Washington Democrats want to spend their time arguing for unlimited abortion on demand.
“I want to thank the Majority Leader for making it so clear where his party’s priorities lie.”
