This so-called “Catholic” Democrat Senator just launched a pro-abortion campaign ad in his reelection bid

The Democrats have made the bizarre decision to make abortion-on-demand for any reason the only issue this election year.

And even so-called “pro-life” Democrats have joined the pro-abortion push.

That’s why this so-called “Catholic” Democrat Senator just launched a pro-abortion campaign ad in his reelection bid.

Self-described Catholic U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) has just launched a new TV ad against his Republican opponent.

Casey joins the dark side

In the ad, Casey points out that his once-pro-life stance has now become fully pro-abortion.

On June 19, the Associated Press reported that Casey’s new ad claims his opponent, Republican David McCormick, wants to “‘make abortion illegal even in cases of rape and incest’ — a characterization McCormick says is wrong.”

Interestingly, the AP pointed out that though Casey has discussed his stance on abortion in the past, this is the first time the Democrat Senator has “wielded abortion rights as a weapon.” 

Despite his previous claims to be a “pro-life Democrat,” Casey has voted repeatedly against pro-life legislation, like the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. 

And CatholicVote’s Catholic Accountability Project has given Casey an “F” rating for his voting record.

According to the AP, Casey, during a meeting with a left-wing women’s advocacy group, also warned that the chemical abortion pill and contraception could be banned, even in states where abortion is legal, if a Republican is elected President and if Republicans retake the Senate.

“You could have blue-state impact whether it’s a blue-state ban that affects contraception or whether it’s a blue-state ban when it comes to abortion because of mifepristone,” Casey said.

Casey’s strident pro-abortion strategy of attacking McCormick’s position is “quite a reframing for Casey,” the AP reported. 

In the past, Casey has supported legislation that would protect life after 20 weeks, and other such legislation not usually supported by Democrats.

“But he also had emphasized reducing abortions through services that prevent unwanted pregnancies and help pregnant women and young mothers, a reason he has given for backing federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” the AP noted.

Not at all like his father

Casey was first elected as a U.S. Senator for Pennsylvania in 2007. 

His late father, Bob Casey Sr., who served as Governor of the Keystone State, was a true pro-life Democrat.

In fact, Casey, Sr. was the pro-life respondent in the 1990s U.S. Supreme Court case Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

And Casey Sr. expressed his staunch opposition to abortion in a 1987 speech, when he called abortion “the ultimate violence.”

But the younger Casey has clearly not followed in his father’s pro-Catholic, pro-life footsteps.

Casey is just one more Democrat politician who has decided the death of babies is a political tool to be used to try and keep power.

But it’s not just the life issue where Casey has sold out his Catholic faith.

In March, CatholicVote reported Casey also said he was in favor of earmarking 1 million in taxpayer dollars for a rabidly anti-Catholic LGBT group.

Now the question is, will Republican David McCormick sell out on the life issue, or will he remain firm?
