Democrat Debate: Should Government Pay For Trans Womens’ Abortions? Castro Says Yes!
The Democrat presidential debate covered the pressing issue of government-funded abortions for transgender women.
“All of you on stage support a women’s right to abortion. You all support some version of a government health-care option. Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary?”,” NBC’s Lester Holt inquired of Julian Castro, the former Obama HUD Secretary now running for president.
“Yes it would. I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And what means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community — a trans female — is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t exercise that right to choose. So I absolutely would cover that right to have an abortion,” Castro responded.
Well, there you have it. Julian Castro would have the government pay for trans womens’ abortions.
The first Democrat presidential debate Wednesday — featuring the lesser crop of candidates — earned a one-word review from President Donald Trump: “BORING.”
NBC News experienced a technical malfunction that led to Savannah Guthrie, offstage, drowning out the sound on stage, prompting a cut to commercial break by Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow.
Amy Klobuchar ranted about Mitch McConell throwing out back up “paper ballots,” which is really the only issue the Democrats seem to care about: vote counting.
Bombshell numbers out of Fulton County, Georgia show that a vast amount of the provisional ballots submitted in the Democrat stronghold were rejected.
Now, the Democrat Stacey Abrams campaign is pushing on Fulton County, running an entire campaign-style operation with phone banking, texts and email blasts to reach out to people who allegedly cast provisional ballots on Election Day.
Abrams’ search for provisional ballots may yield fruit, but her search for credible provisional ballots that can be counted in this election will prove futile. Why?
A full 1,811 provisional ballots in Fulton County were duplicates (49 percent), and 1,556 of them (42 percent of the total provisionals) were rejected.
Three of the individuals were not citizens, 581 were not registered to vote, and 972 did not live in that county.
