Beto on Third-Trimester Abortions: Should be Decision the Woman Makes
Beto completely avoided the question by answering his made up one instead. At the very least I'll add coward to the growing list of reasons I'd never vote for him.
Appearing Monday at a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio, 2020 Democrat candidate Beto O’Rourke said he believes it’s a woman’s right to decide whether she should undergo a third-trimester abortion, signaling he would not support government intervening to prevent the procedure.
A transcript is as follows:
ATTENDEE: Are you for third-trimester abortions or are you going to protect the lives of third-trimester babies? Because, you know, there’s really not a medical necessity for abortion. It’s not a medical emergency procedure, because typically, third-trimester abortions take up to three days to have, so in that sense, if there were an emergency, the doctors would just do a c-section and you don’t have to kill the baby. So, are you for or against third-trimester abortions?
BETO O’ROURKE: So, the question is about abortion or reproductive rights, and my answer to you is that should be a decision that the woman makes. I trust her.
