House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said most Americans do not agree with the Democrat Party’s abortion platform. In an interview Monday, the California lawmaker weighed in on the left’s outrage at the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The Republican said every House Democrat voted for late-term abortions, which he said fails to align with the mainstream voter.

McCarthy also accused Democrats of gas lighting the American public by claiming Roe’s end was un-democratic. Rather than outlawing abortion, the House Minority Leader said the ruling allows citizens to decide the issue on a state-by-state basis.

“Democrats aren’t just for abortion, every single one in Congress voted to have abortion up to the moment of birth,” he noted. “America does not support that. So now what most people would want (is) to have their own opinion, be able to have input in it, within each state and that’s what will go forward.”

Although McCarthy noted Democrats are trying to campaign on abortion, he predicted it will fail to prevent a red wave in November.
