Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke cemented his support for third-trimester abortions, telling a man at a rally in South Carolina that his mother had the right to abort him until the day he was born.
During a campaign stop at the College of Charleston, the ostensibly Catholic O’Rourke had a Q&A session when a Pro-Life advocate stepped up in front of a large crowd.
The campaign attendee asked, “My question is this: I was born Sept. 8th, 1989, and I want to know if you think on Sept. 7th, 1989, my life had no value.”
The former Texas Congressman calmly stated, “Of course I don’t think that your life had no value. Of course, I’m glad that you’re here.” He goes on after affirming the man’s existence to trump it with the Democratic platitude and gold standard, “This is a decision that neither you nor I nor the United States government should be making. That’s a decision for the woman to make.”
While Beto was speaking at length about the “attack on a woman’s right to choose,” the Pro-Life man followed up and jumped in to ask, “but what about my right to life?”
The man was met by audible groans of exasperation from the crowd. Beto told the man that he patiently listened to the question, but now it was his turn to talk.
The 2020 presidential candidate went on to defend the authority of Roe V. Wade and say that he believed any limit to abortion would contribute to maternal mortality increasing, citing false statistics to back his point.
