When it comes to government intrusion, there are no limits for Bernie Sanders. He wants the government to have a hand in every aspect of the citizen’s life. He could easily adopt the old communist slogan, “From cradle to grave.”
Well, there is one thing that he revealed he does not want the government to have a hand in; Sanders thinks that the government should stay out of abortion.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders expressed his support for allowing abortion without restriction until birth during a televised town hall event on Monday.
“There are a whole lot of people out there who tell me that government is terrible, government is awful, get government off our backs,” Sanders stated. “But somehow on this issue, they want to tell every woman in America what she should do with her body.”
It is astonishing how badly Sanders understands the argument against the murder of the innocent (abortion). Sanders wishes to have the government regulate every aspect of our lives, except for the murder of helpless children. Why?
Is it possible that Sanders misunderstands the Pro-Life position so badly that he would make such a stupid statement? Has the position been so poorly explained or represented that he could come away thinking that this was a government control issue? It is not likely that any of these possibilities are true.
At the end of the day, it is all about misdirection. If we were speaking of murder (which we are) then there would not be a discussion about government intrusion. Do not be fooled. Bernie is not a Libertarian when it comes to abortion; he is still a socialist. And there is one more thing that we can be sure of about Bernie and abortion.
Bernie does not think that it matters when the baby is murdered because he has no reason to think the murder of these children is wrong. Pragmatism rules the day and Utilitarian rule is what we can expect if Bernie is elected.
