Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) heated ‘men can’t get pregnant’ exchange wasn’t the only memorable moment from Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on abortion. Lone Star State Senator Ted Cruz made waves by holding a mirror up to Democrats —sharing their past comments on the issue.
According to Fox News, “When Cruz was recognized at the A Post-Roe America: The Legal Consequences of the Dobbs Decision’ hearing, he said Biden and Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin, D-Ill., are on public record opposing the ‘unlimited abortion on demand’ held by today’s modern Democratic Party.”
“Today’s modern Democrat Party has become radicalized on abortion. Today’s Democrat Party has said if you are Democrat and pro-life, get the hell out you are not welcomed in our party,” he said.
“[U]nlimited abortion on demand up until the moment of birth, including partial-birth abortion with government funding, with no parental notifications and no parental consent, is supported by only a tiny minority of Americans,” Cruz added.
“They know that voters, when given the chance, do not support that radical view,” he continued.
“When Roe v. Wade was first decided, one Democrat who spoke up against it was a fella named Joseph Robinette Biden [Jr.],” Cruz said.
In 1974, Biden said he “didn’t like” the Supreme Court’s view on legalizing abortion, saying the decision “went too far.”
“I don’t like the Supreme Court decision 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,” the Biden quote read.
Cruz also pointed out Biden opposed late-term abortions in 2007.
“Abortion is an issue in which the American people have strong and passionate views and disagree,” Cruz said. “Those disagreements have been longstanding.”
