Tucker Carlson invited on pro-choice advocate Monica Klein to discuss the much-critiqued comments by “moderate” Virgnia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam who in a press conference on Thursday said that he does not regret what he said yesterday about letting a born baby die or the way he said it.
“Do you regret what you said yesterday or the way you said it?” a reporter asked Northam.
“No I don’t,” Northam responded.
Tucker guest decided to defend his actions and made a big mistake!
I wonder what you think of what Dr. Northam, the governor of Virginia, just said: That when a child — he described the child as an infant — is born, there’s a point where the mother and the physician can decide whether to kill the infant or not,” Carlson said (video below). “What do you think of that?”
Klein responded by immediately accusing Carlson of wanting “to go back to a time where Roe v. Wade was illegal, where women were having back-alley abortions and they were using coat hangers to have abortions, which is actually what’s barbaric.”
“Don’t give me that,” said Carlson, disappointed. “I’m giving you time to make a real argument. I’m not arguing for the repeal of Roe v. Wade — and please don’t be tiresome. The governor of Virginia, who is a rising star of Democratic Party, just said this. There’s pending legislation that mirrors it, and I’m asking you what you think of it. That’s it.”
“I think that right now, reproductive healthcare is under attack by the Republican Party,” Klein charged. “Seventy-two percent of Americans support right to choose.”
She then got specific about who is supposedly waging this war on “reproductive healthcare”: “We have Trump and sexual predator Kavanaugh trying to repeal Roe v. Wade and trying to take away control over our bodies,” she said, repeating unfounded accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — accusations the Senate Judiciary Committee did not find “any evidence to substantiate or corroborate” after an extensive investigation.
“This isn’t about babies,” Klein alleged. “This is about you attempting to control women’s bodies.”
“Please don’t be a robot, Monica,” said Carlson. “You’re smarter than that.”
When he asked if it “bothers” her to simply ask her a reasonable question about the extreme bill, she again attacked him with the cliched Democrat talking point that ignores the existence of another life in the women: “It bothers me that you are trying to control women’s bodies,” she said.
“I wonder if you think you’re convincing anybody, or if your unwillingness to address what just happened today on tape, that we just played, is a sign that you can’t defend this,” said Carlson. After giving her another chance, she again turned the discussion to “trying to repeal Roe v. Wade.”
“This is about a woman’s right to choose, and you as a man should not have a single say in that,” she said.
Wow. Do you think that you’re making a case that most people agree with — that it’s okay to abort a child in the third trimester?” said Carlson. Carlson eventually told her, “I think less of you” for her response, a sentiment she reciprocated.
The failed bill Northam was defending would have allowed women to abort their babies through the end of the third trimester, in other words, until birth, if it was deemed by a single doctor that it could harm the woman’s health, including “mental health.”
