CNN’s Bash Suggests Babies Be Aborted Rather Than Live in Poverty

Breaking News

On Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN, co-anchor Dana Bash revealed how the pro-abortion left really sees pregnancy and the life of children. Towards the end of her interview with Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, Bash seemed to suggest that because his state has a large population of children living in poverty, poor parents are better off aborting their unborn children. 

Prior to that disgusting insinuation, Bash decided to obsess over Arkansas’s abortion law which doesn’t make an exception for rape and incest, a scenario that accounts for only one percent of all abortions nationwide. 

Bash whined to Hutchinson: “[Y]our law only has exceptions for the life of the mother. So, just want to be clear. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, no woman, unless her life is at risk, will be able to get an abortion in Arkansas?” 

Hutchinson didn’t reject the premise of the question or note that the scenario Bash is concerned about isn’t an issue in ninety-nine percent of abortion cases, yet he let her know that when he signed the law, he expressed that he supports exceptions for “life of the mother and rape and incest.”

Yet that wasn’t good enough for Bash, who continued to shriek at him: “you did sign the law that does not include any exceptions for rape and incest. I know you said that you didn’t — you would rather that that not be part of the law, but it is and you signed it.”

Bash then brought up a scenario which only occurs in 0.5 percent of abortion cases. “Why should an 11 or 12-year-old girl who’s impregnated by her father or her uncle or another family member be forced to carry that child to term?” Bash asked. Hutchinson responded that if Roe v. Wade is indeed overturned by the Supreme Court, exceptions for rape and incest will be revisited. 

The last question Bash asked was the most despicable: “Arkansas already struggles to support vulnerable children. Nearly one in four children in Arkansas lives in poverty” Bash snarked. “More than 4,600 kids are already in your state’s overloaded foster care system. Do you really think that your state is prepared to protect and care for even more children if abortion does become illegal there?”

So children born to poor parents are better off dead? This is how the left views pregnancy. It isn’t a gift to the left, it’s a burden.

CNN’s State of the Union

DANA BASH: Governor, in 2019 you signed a law in Arkansas that would do the same if Roe v. Wade is overturned. And your law only has exceptions for the life of the mother. So, just want to be clear. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, no woman, unless her life is at risk, will be able to get an abortion in Arkansas? 

GOV. ASA HUTCHINSON: If Roe v. Wade is reversed, then the trigger law in Arkansas would come into effect. And whenever I signed that law, I did express that I support the — also the exceptions of rape and incest. The life of the mother and rape and incest are two exceptions that I believe should have been added that did not have the support in the General Assembly. And so we have to wait and see what the Supreme Court actually does, but if  Roe v. Wade is reversed, then what we’ve fought for for 40 years and returning the authority back to the states will actually happen, you’ll see states making different decisions based upon the values and the consensus of the people of that state. In Arkansas, we actually passed a constitutional amendment supporting the life of the unborn and recognizing that. And so the will of the people of Arkansas has been expressed. 

BASH: Governor, you did sign the law that does not include any exceptions for rape and incest. I know you said that you didn’t — you would rather that that not be part of the law, but it is and you signed it. So, I want to discuss the real world implications of this. For example, why should an 11 or 12-year-old girl who’s impregnated by her father or her uncle or another family member be forced to carry that child to term? 

HUTCHINSON: I agree with you. I’ve had to deal with that particular circumstance even as Governor. And while it’s still life in the womb, life of the unborn, the conception was under criminal circumstances, either incest or rape. And so those are two exceptions I recognize, I believe, are very appropriate. And what will happen as time goes on if Roe v. Wade is reversed, these are gonna become very real circumstances. 

BASH: Yes. 

HUTCHINSON: I think the debate and discussion will be–continue and that could very well be revisited. 

BASH: But, Governor, what if it can’t be? You wanted the legislature in Arkansas to put those exceptions in. They didn’t. Your term is almost up. What makes you think you can change it? And if you can’t, that means that people who are — women — girls who are still children, 11 and 12-year-olds, might be in this situation, in a very real way in just a couple of months potentially. 

(…)

BASH: Arkansas already struggles to support vulnerable children. Nearly one in four children in Arkansas lives in poverty. More than 4,600 kids are already in your state’s overloaded foster care system. Do you really think that your state is prepared to protect and care for even more children if abortion does become illegal there?
