Presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke issued a open-ended declaration of support for abortion on Monday, denying that any restrictions on the barbaric practice are necessary even if it is performed moments prior to birth.
O’Rourke was questioned at the College of Charleston in South Carolina by an audience member who challenged the former U.S. Congressman from Texas regarding third-trimester abortions, which O’Rourke has been on the record supporting in the past.
“So, my question is this: I was born September 8th, 1989, and I want to know if you think on September 7th, 1989, my life had no value?” the man asked O’Rourke.
“Of course I don’t think that, and, of course, I’m glad that you’re here,” O’Rourke said in response.
“This is a decision that neither you, nor I, nor the United States government should be making. That’s a decision for the woman to make. We want her to have the best possible access to care and to a medical provider, and I’ll tell you the consequence of this, this attack on a woman’s right to choose,” he added.
The man was not content with O’Rourke’s chilling response and responded by reiterating his question: “But what about my right to life?”
“I listened to you, and I heard your question. I’m answering it,” O’Rourke responded. “And I want to tell you some of the consequences of this. In my home state of Texas, thanks to these ‘trap’ laws that make it harder for providers to offer the full spectrum of reproductive care, more than a quarter of our family planning clinics have closed.”
“I don’t question the decisions that a woman makes. Only she knows what she knows, and I want to trust her with that. So, I appreciate the question,” O’Rourke concluded.
O’Rourke’s position on abortion is quickly becoming the consensus within the Democratic Party. Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam and state delegate Kathy Tran made public comments in support of allowing doctors to commit abortions on the delivery room table.
Republican state delegate Todd Gilbert asked Tran during a legislative hearing: “Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.”
Rep. Tran responded, “My bill would allow that, yes.”
Northam quickly rushed to Tran’s corner, saying similar remarks justifying extreme late-term abortions.
“[Third trimester abortions are] done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s nonviable. So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam said during a radio appearance.
“The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” he added.
Democrats keep blurring the lines between abortion and infanticide, as the outright murder of babies becomes closer and closer to the orthodoxy within a party that is racing to the far left.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
