I think there have been, what, seven Democratic debates and not one about abortion.”

He blasted the constant media double standard on the issue:

The moderators are always asking Republicans about the difficult issue of exceptions for the pro-life position, which is a serious question. But you never hear the same question asked about the difficult exceptions on the pro-choice side, meaning, is there any time, anywhere, any time in the pregnancy when you would allow a regulation to prevent an abortion? Which is never asked, has to be asked, and was asked.

Wrapping up his analysis, Krauthammer called on the press to follow Baier’s example: “You actually were able to pierce the veil on that and I’d like to see other moderators pick it up. I doubt they will, but it’s good that you did.”
