“Here’s the deal—we always seen to have the debate waaaaay over here on what are the exact details of exemptions, or when it starts,” said Paul, moving his hands to the left.
“Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it okay to kill a seven-pound baby in the uterus?” Paul added.
“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.” the Senator noted.
Wasserman Schultz DID reply, giving the following answer to reporters:
“Here’s an answer,” said Schultz. “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul. We know you want to allow government officials like yourself to make this decision for women — but do you stand by your opposition to any exceptions, even when it comes to rape, incest, or life of the mother? Or do we just have different definitions of ‘personal liberty’? And I’d appreciate it if you could respond without ’shushing’ me.”
In an appearance on CNN, Paul stood his ground and told Wolf Blitzer it appeared the Democratic leader wasn’t opposed to late-term abortions.
“Sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby,” he said.
