Reporter: “Would you support any exceptions to a ban on abortions?”
Rand Paul: “In general, I am pro-life. So I will support legislation that advances and shows that life is special and deserves protection.”
Reporter: “Should there be any exemptions or not?”
Rand Paul: “Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it okay to kill a seven-pound baby in the uterus? You go back and you ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s OK with killing a seven-pound baby that is not born yet. Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when it’s okay to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, get back to me.”
Debbie tweeted her response: “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story.”
Rand tweeted too: “It sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s OK with killing a 7-pound baby.”
A majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion that are favored by Republican candidates,
- such as requiring health inspections and hospital privileges for out-patient abortion clinics,
- such as requiring waiting periods, ultrasounds and parental notification for abortions on minors;
- such as banning abortion after 20 weeks gestation because fetuses not only feel pain, but experience it more intensely than we do, because they have not yet developed the ability to filter out stimuli.
It’s an undeniable fact that late-term abortions are barbaric procedures that make water-boarding and capital punishment pale in comparison, but ask Debbie Democrat to discuss the issue honestly and what does she do?
She plays the “You’re a meanie pants MAN” card.
Specifically, she told Rand, “I’d appreciate it if you could respond without ’shushing’ me.”
But how did he “shush” her?
All he did was ask her legitimate questions that she didn’t want to answer honestly. Most people call that kind of thing “having a mature discussion.” But you know Democrats; treat one of THEIR females as a true equal in the rough-and-tumble game of national politics and they hit the fainting couch.
“Oh noes! He gave me the back of his hand! He tried to shush me! Get me the smelling salts!”
