Democratic presidential candidates Senators Bernie Sanders (VT) and Kamala Harris (CA) attacked fellow Democrat Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards for signing into law “heartbeat” protections limiting abortions in his state. “Dangerous attacks on women’s constitutional right to an abortion are outrageous no matter what party you’re in,” Harris tweeted. Sanders called the move an “outrage.” Once again, Democrats are making it clear that pro-life Democrats are anathema and shall be purged.

Democratic presidential hopefuls Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) criticized Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) on Thursday for his support of a bill that would ban abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
“Dangerous attacks on women’s constitutional right to an abortion are outrageous no matter what party you’re in,” Harris tweeted after Edwards signed the bill, which would outlaw abortion around six weeks into pregnancy.
“My message to the Gov. of Louisiana: women have agency, women have value, women have authority to make decisions about their own lives—and we will not go backward,” she added.
