Rand Paul Exposes DNC Head: “It Sounds Like She’s OK With Killing A 7-pound baby”
Presidential candidate wants to know if Democratic Party supports late term abortions
2016 Presidential candidate Rand Paul yesterday made his position on abortion crystal clear, and forced the hand of the DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, goading her into an admission that she is in favor of limitless abortions, including late-term abortions, up until the day of birth.
When Paul was asked by a partisan AP reporter about his views on abortion recently, and what exemptions to a ban that he would support, he responded by noting how the debate is always framed to shoot down his opinions.

“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.
Paul added that “even most of my friends who are pro-choice are opposed to such abortions.”
“But Debbie’s position, which I guess is the Democrat Party’s position, that an abortion all the way up until the day of birth would be fine, I think most pro-choice people would be really uncomfortable with that,” he added. “So I don’t know — I really think she’s got some explaining to do.”
The procedure for late term abortions is horrific, but it gives some context to note what it entails. The unborn child is rotated until it is facing feet downwards, then the body is yanked out of the uterus, with the exception of its head, and out of the woman’s body. A hole is then punctured into the base of the fetal skull, and the brains are sucked out through a tube.
Many Twitter users agree with Paul that it is Wasserman Schultz that has some further explaining to do on this subject, rather than the Senator himself.
Now it’s all about damage control for the DNC:
