Democrats have become more and more radical on the question of abortion, with many now arguing that one should be entitled to abortion up to the moment of birth and even people like Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam sparking infanticide talk when he seemed to suggest one might just let babies born after a botched abortion die. Then Democrats refused to support Born Alive bills in Congress to address the question that Northam’s comments broached.
But a guest on CNN, former Speaker on the New York City Council Christine Quinn, took it a step further.
She argued during a discussion on Monday about “heartbeat bills” that when a woman gets pregnant, she is not pregnant with a human being.
From Daily Wire:
“These so-called heartbeat bills are exactly what you said, six-week bills. They, for all intent and purposes, are an end run around Roe versus Wade, and a clear attempt to make abortion illegal in new — across the country,” Quinn said. “That’s what they are. And we’ve seen in states where they’ve been passed already, courts strike them out or enjoin them. This is a clear attempt to take decisions about a woman’s body and birth out of the hands of a woman and out of the hands of doctors.”
Quinn became hostile toward CNN contributor Rick Santorum, and Cuomo jumped in and sided with Quinn.
Later in the interview, during an exchange with Santorum, Quinn said, “When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It’s part of her body.”
Quinn, with the assistance of Chris Cuomo, went after Rick Santorum, suggesting he and Republicans are lying about Democrats supporting extreme position and that priests wouldn’t approve of that.
Really? Priests don’t approve of abortion of any kind. And priests certainly believe that a baby in the womb is, in fact, a “human being.”
The fact that this even needs to be argued is troubling.
And speaking of laws, while Chris Cuomo’s brother Andrew helped change the law in New York to dehumanize the unborn child, 38 states as of last year recognized that the unlawful killing of an unborn child as homicide at least under certain circumstances.
