WATCH: Stacey Abrams claims protecting babies from abortion is bad for business
The Alabama legislature recently passed a controversial pro-life law, virtually banning all abortions and making performing an abortion a felony. There’s a small exception for preserving or saving the life of the mother.
It passed 25-6, but it’s unclear if Republican Gov. Kay Ivey will sign it into law.
Many 2020 candidates are reacting negatively to the bill, but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders went far beyond basic criticism and declared that abortion is a “constitutional right.”
Abortion is a constitutional right.

Translation: Women have a constitutional right to murder their unborn children.
I’m pretty sure that’s contrary to the basic tenets of the Constitution. Remember what the Founders said in our founding documents? Men and women have certain unalienable Rights, “that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Government’s main role is to PROTECT those rights. Yet here Bernie is, speaking the exact opposite.

I'm pro choice. I'm also pro constitution. Please show me where the constitution makes abortion a constitutional right.

Nope. Right to Privacy has nothing to do with abortion any more than comitting some other immoral act or crime would be protected.

If killing babies is a constitutional right and carrying guns is not, we need to go back to the drawing board.
