In the 10 minutes I saw I think I caught her “moderate” abortion stance. She plead to find common ground on banning late term abortions and pushing for adoptions. All things that make sense on the surface to people who are ignorant of why late term abortions happen.
What I heard was let’s force families to pay $100,000’s in medical bills to watch their wanted pregnancy end in horrible pain as their babies gasp for air for hours or a few days dying from unpreventable birth defects.
I also heard that in those awful situations that should be the parents responsibility to determine the least harm to their children themselves and their families, that she feels it’s the governments right to determine the outcome.
And finally since she should know all of this I heard her saying I don’t care about the pain this policy causes vulnerable women, children and families if it gets me elected.
I do agree with you that she’s probably the best of them.
Republicans lying for decades about when abortions happen has been extremely effective for them. Most of the public truly has no idea what happens when and why.
