DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz won’t admit humanity of own preborn children

debbiewassermanshultz5rePro-lifers are ‘extremists’ – or at least, that’s what we’re told. It is ‘extreme’ to say that a genetically distinct human being is growing and developing in his mother’s womb during pregnancy. It is ‘extreme’ to say that this same being was indeed a biological human from the moment of fertilization. It is ‘extreme’ to suggest that perhaps killing human beings in the womb should not be allowed by law, as most of our laws serve to protect human beings, not to (under the guise of ‘personal privacy’) end those lives.

But what seems more extreme is the fact that, due to their radical pro-abortion ideology, abortion supporters cannot seem to cope with the simple facts of basic human biology. Case in point: Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz cannot bring herself to admit that her own three children were human beings while in her womb…

It is curious that she completely disregards the humanity of her own children while developing as biological humans in utero, as many expectant mothers are very much aware of when their children have hiccups, when they are awake, and when they are asleep. Fetal movement in the second trimester – and especially in the third – is not difficult to ascertain. Wasserman Schultz’s refusal to admit the humanity of humans in utero shows a weakness in her position: She must ignore biological fact to preserve her ideology. This seems to be common among abortion supporters.

MRC-TV reports the DNC Chair’s comments:

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.

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, ladies and gentlemen: a believer that her political opponents want to kick women out of the country, and a believer that biology and science are irrelevant to the question of ‘abortion rights.’

Wasserman Schultz sounds eerily like late-term abortionist Dr. LeRoy Carhart, seen in the Live Action “InHuman” video below, who believes “life begins when the mother thinks it begins” (0:26 – 0:41):

When one’s philosophy (and that’s what it is – philosophy, not science) aligns with one of the country’s most infamous late-term abortionists, perhaps it’s time to reconsider whose ideology is ‘extreme.’

As MRC-TV pointed out, “if it’s not a human being, it seems like an abortion supporter like Wasserman-Schultz should be able to say that definitively — especially before touting her own right to have aborted her own children.”
