This is the most eloquent argument for a woman's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion that I've ever heard a staunchly "100% pro-life" Republican presidential front-runner ever make on national television…
"No, it comes down to it's not the government's role or anybody else's role to make that decision. Secondly, if you look at the statistical incidents, you're not talking about that big a number. So what I'm saying is it ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make.
"Not me as president, not some politician, not a bureaucrat. It gets down to that family. And whatever they decide, they decide. I shouldn't have to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive issue."
Can you believe that some people are trying to swing his full-throated defense of a woman's right to choose as being pro-choice? Have you ever heard anything so crazy in your life?
