Abortion is not abortion if 10-year-old gets aborted, says anti-abortion leader

in true sense In a bizarre exchange during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, the leader of a national anti-abortion organization claimed that if a 10-year-old rape victim becomes pregnant and…

Katherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of American United for Life, was responding to questions from Representative Eric Swellwell (D-Calif.) about whether she thinks a 10-year-old girl should “choose” to have a child or No. , After some time, during which Foster refused to answer the question, she came up with a response.

“I believe it would probably affect her life, and therefore, it would fall under any exceptions and would not lead to an abortion,” Foster said.

“Wait,” Svalwell replied, puzzled. “Won’t it be an abortion if a 10-year-old girl decides not to have a child as a result of her parents’ rape?”

“If a 10-year-old became pregnant as a result of rape and it threatened her life, it is not an abortion,” Foster said. “So it wouldn’t come under any abortion ban in our country.”

Here is a video clip of their exchange:

The president of American United for Life is trying to redefine abortion to avoid saying that, yes, of course, a 10-year-old rape victim should be allowed to have an abortion.

It’s not even a hypothetical scenario: Earlier this month, A 10-year-old girl who has been raped at least twice Was forced to travel from Ohio to Indiana to have an abortion. She and her family had to move to another state for a medical procedure, in view of the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade was reversed, with Ohio banning all abortions after six weeks. The 10-year-old was reportedly six weeks and three days pregnant.

After Foster claimed his bonkers, Swellwell turned to another committee witness, Sarah Warbello, the legal director of the Human Rights Campaign.

“Ms. Warbello, are you familiar with the propaganda?” He asked.

“Uh, yes I am,” said Warbello.

“Have you just heard some propaganda?” asked Swellwell.

“Yeah, I heard some very important propaganda,” Warbello replied, offering a true definition of what abortion is.

“Abortion is a process, it is a medical procedure, in which individuals go through a variety of circumstances, including sexual assault, rape in the case of a 10-year-old girl,” she said. “It does not matter whether there is a statutory exemption or not. It’s still a medical procedure that’s considered an abortion.”

In the case of a 10-year-old rape victim in Ohio, Warbello said there is no exception to Ohio state law that allows abortion when the life or health of the pregnant person is at risk.

“That’s why a 10-year-old girl had to cross state borders to get an abortion,” she said.

swallow later Called Foster on Twitter and explained why he had such a hard time answering his question.

“The MAGA GOP doesn’t want you to know their abortion laws that force pregnancies on little girls,” he said.
