While Bernie Sanders was sucking up to Queen Hillary at Tuesday night's charade of a debate, MRC TV asked DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz a very up-close and personal question on abortion: whether or not she thought her children were actually human beings while in the womb.
Schultz refused to give a simple "yes" or "no" answer, opting instead to fall back onto Democratic talking points. Based on her answers, it begs the question as to why MRC TV didn't just point-blank ask if she would've aborted her own children if she had been given the opportunity – her answers certainly don't suggest otherwise. Transcript below:
MRC TV: You have three children, correct?
Wasserman Schultz: I do.
MRC TV: How old are they?
Wasserman Schultz: I have twin 16-year-olds and a 12-year-old.
MRC TV: In your opinion, were they human beings before they were born?
Wasserman Schultz: You know, I believe that every woman has the right to make their own reproductive choices.
MRC TV: But what did you believe about your children?
Wasserman Schultz: That I had the right to make my own reproductive choices, which I was glad to have and which I was proud to have.
MRC TV: So were they human beings? Just yes or no.
Wasserman Schultz: They’re human beings today, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to make my own reproductive choices, as – a right that every woman has and should maintain.
