“The Democrat Party used to have room for diversity, used to have some voices of reasonableness, on all sorts of issues,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) noted this week, sharing quotes demonstrating that even some of today’s staunchest abortion-on-demand Democrats once spoke out in favor of life.
In an episode of “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” the senator quotes President Joe Biden from his Senate days, as well as past remarks by today’s Sen. Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), both forcefully declaring their pro-life views.
“Today’s Democrats say, ‘If you’re pro-life, get out of the party,” Cruz says, adding that the view Biden held just 15 years ago, “is no longer allowed in today’s radicalized Democrat Party.”
Cruz quotes Biden in 1973 stating, “I don’t like the Supreme Court decision [Roe vs. Wade] on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.”
In 2007, Biden reaffirmed his opposition to late-term abortion, Cruz says, quoting Biden’s in an appearance on “Meet the Press.”
“It’s not just Joe Biden,” Cruz notes, quoting Durbin in 1983 touting an amendment “which clearly states that the right to abortion is not guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Cruz points out that Dubin reiterated his view in 1989, writing “I continue to believe the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade should be reversed.”
