Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), chief Senate sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act — which would “invalidate nearly all state-level restrictions on abortion, including existing laws placing limits on late-term abortions,” as National Review notes — recently refused to answer a question regarding the humanity of preborn children in the second trimester of pregnancy, saying instead that he believes abortion at that stage of development should continue to be constitutionally protected.

In relation to the upcoming Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization regarding Mississippi’s 15-week (four month) ban on abortion (details here), Blumenthal was asked by CNS News, “The Supreme Court this fall will review a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?”

Blumenthal replied, “You know, I’m going to wait for the Supreme Court decision. Right now, abortion at that point in a pregnancy is legal and constitutionally protected, and I believe it should be.”
