The former White House press secretary Jen Psaki was widely ridiculed for suggesting that she’s unaware of anybody advocating for abortion right up until birth.
Psaki made the remark on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, in what appeared to be a response to GOP candidates’ abortion comments during the Fox News debate Wednesday night.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) pointed out how radical the left has become in their pro-abortion platform as he defended his own pro-life efforts.
“I believe in a culture of life. I was proud to sign the Heartbeat Bill,” he said. “I remember one of the most impactful moments of my life was when I heard the heartbeat of my oldest daughter in my wife’s womb and then saw the sonograms of all three of my kids.”
“What the Democrats are trying to do on this issue is wrong, to allow abortion all the way up to the moment of birth,” DeSantis added.
Psaki fired off a tweet saying, “No one supports abortion up until birth.”
No one supports abortion up until birth.

Psaki Denies Democrats Want Abortion Up Until Birth
As is the typical modus operandi of the Democrat party, they’re banking heavily on the fact that you won’t remember the past.
You know – just like when racist liberals rioted for months on end and then suddenly were thoroughly disgusted by a one day riot at the Capitol.
Fortunately, X users were right there willing to lend a helpful reminder to Psaki about the past, not the least of which was the former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
“Yes, they do,” she quickly shot back. “And they’re all Democrats.”
Yes, they do. And they’re all democrats. https://t.co/ek3f4fJvMb

Others were also swift to gently remind Psaki that she is, to be blunt, lying.
Townhall web editor Rebecca Downs responded with an acronym for “Are you f***ing kidding me?”
“AYFKM?” she wrote. “You worked for the man who does!”
AYFKM? You worked for the man who does!

Comedian Roseanne Barr challenged Psaki to then state explicitly that she opposes no limit abortions.
“If you would like to stand up with your fellow democrats and say you’re against that we’d love to hear it,” she tweeted.
No one? Why have no limit laws passed then? If you would like to stand up with your fellow democrats and say you’re against that we’d love to hear it.
Will you stand up and say you’re against late term abortion then and push for these no limit states to overturn the law? pic.twitter.com/82VLhE9z3Q

Democrats Support Abortion Up Until Birth – And So Does Psaki
Of course, reality isn’t necessarily something that Democrats like to accept. Why? Because it negates nearly every argument and every platform they’ve ever supported.
Psaki’s abortion comments are no different.
It seems like only yesterday that six Democrats who ran for President in 2020 voted no to providing medical attention to babies who survive abortion, essentially leaving them to die.
….This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.

Then there was Democrat former governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, who made controversial remarks about infants with deformities or unable to survive after birth being left to die.

There are currently six states in America, plus the District of Columbia, where there are no limits on abortion. Only one of those is considered a red state.
Making Psaki’s tweet all the more ridiculous are her own past comments in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act.
WATCH: Jen Psaki says Biden “announced his strong support for passage of the Women’s Health Protection Act.”

The Act sought to ban reasonable restrictions on abortion and make it legal up until birth.
49 Democrats voted in favor of the legislation or, in Psaki’s mind, “no one.”
