Beth Rourke believes that an unborn child, who is 40, has value. But he also believes that no one should doubt whether this child should be aborted because the decision is only for the mother to make.
Success in reconciling these two positions.
The bipolar protection of life and the extremely late abortions of Democratic 2020 came this week as he spoke at a political rally at Charleston College in Charleston, South Carolina.
An audience member who mentioned specifically when O & # 39; Rourke in March said late abortion "must be the decision a woman makes," said to a former Texas congressman: "I was born September 8, 1
" Of course I don't think about that, "the 2020 candidate replied. Then he added," This is a decision that neither you, nor I, nor the United States Government, should make. This is the woman's decision to take. "
The public honored the Democratic candidate in 2020 with enthusiastic applause. Here are footage from the interaction, courtesy of WCIV-TV:
" We want her to have the best access to care, to a healthcare professional and to you say the consequence of this attack on the right to choose women – "continued Rourke.
An audience member intervened to say," What about my right to be alive? "
" I heard about you and I heard your question and I answer it, "Rourke replied. But he didn't answer it.
The former Texas spokesman said ira the normal litany of choice hotspots, including warnings about attacks against Roe v. Wade "trap laws", "safe, legal access to abortion", cervical cancer screening and states that have refused to expand their Medicaid programs. He did not address this student's right to life.
O & # 39; Rourke ended up with this line, which also earned him a round of applause: "I do not question the decisions a woman makes. I mean, only she knows what she knows and I want to trust her. "
To summarize: O 'Rourke says that' of course 'does not believe that a child born on September 8 has no value on September 7. But O' Rourke also says he supports the decision to abortion of this unborn man on September 7 because we do not have to "question the decisions a woman makes."
O & # 39; Rourke's non-response is the result of laziness. – to reflect on this question just as long as it takes to memorize the mostly irrelevant talking points provided by Planned Parenthood and SKDKnickerbocker.
