Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke this week again endorsed third-trimester abortion up until the moment of birth – and then doubled down on his answer via social media.
Speaking at a campaign event at the College of Charleston Monday, O’Rourke was asked by a person in the crowd, “You were at a town-hall meeting just like this in Cleveland and someone asked you specifically about third-trimester abortions, and you said that’s a decision left up to the mother. I was born Sept. 8, 1989, and I want to know if you think on Sept. 7, 1989, my life had no value.”
Initially, O’Rourke sided with the questioner, who presumably is pro-life.
“Of course, I don’t think that and, of course, I’m glad that you’re here,” O’Rourke said.
But then O’Rourke said his position on the issue had not changed.
“You reference my answer in Ohio, and it remains the same,” he said. “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. … I don’t question the decisions that a woman makes.”
The Cleveland event in question took place in March when O’Rourke also was asked about late-term abortions.
