    Dissent on Abortion? Not Anymore for Democrats – ‘Get in Line or Get Out’ – By E.V. Osment (Real Clear Policy) / Aug 28, 2023

    During a visit to the Iowa State Fair recently, Democrat presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told NBC reporter Ali Vitali that he would support a national three-month limit on abortion. The released transcript shows that Kennedy was fully aware of the question being asked and repeated his stance multiple times, even after Vitali expressed her surprise. It was a rare sight of a Democrat candidate going against the extremism of his party’s up-to-birth abortion push.

    Unsurprisingly, Democrats were quick to express outrage.

    Only a few hours later, Kennedy’s campaign tried to backtrack, issuing an unsigned retraction stating he “misunderstood the question” and his “position on abortion is that it is always the woman’s right to choose. He does not support legislation banning abortion.”

    As the transcript with Vitali shows and from his previous public statements, Kennedy did not misunderstand the question. This is also not the first time that Kennedy has voiced a similar stance. During a town hall in June, he similarly supported limits on abortion after three months.
