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.
President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected
Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.
President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.
The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.
The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.
Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
