Democrat 2020 hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota said on national television this week that there is room for pro-lifers in the Democrat Party.
On the day of the New Hampshire Primary, Klobuchar appeared on ABC’s “The View” where she was asked by co-host Meghan McCain about whether “there’s room for pro-life Democrats to vote for you.”
The question came days after fellow 2020 hopeful Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders declared that being pro-choice “is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat.”
Klobuchar, a 59-year-old attorney who is also a member of the United Church of Christ, responded first by affirming that she is “pro-choice” and has “always been pro-choice.” This can be verified by her voting record in support of taxpayer-funded abortion and her support for Planned Parenthood.

“But I believe we are a big tent party and there are pro-life Democrats and they are part of our party,” Klobuchar said. “I think we need to build a big tent. I think we need to bring people in instead of shutting them out. That also includes independents right here in New Hampshire and moderate Republicans.”
Klobuchar surprised many Tuesday when she placed third in the New Hampshire presidential primary election and won the most support among voters who attend religious services weekly, according to exit polls.
Klobuchar has earned a 100 percent grade from the lobbying arm of the nation’s largest abortion corporation, Planned Parenthood.
To earn a 100 percent grade from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, members of Congress must “always vote with Planned Parenthood.”
Klobuchar vowed in December to reverse pro-life policies instituted by the Trump administration within the first 100 days in office.
