Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said that on abortion, the left wants to “shut this conversation down” on Thursday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”
“I am pro-life by virtue of faith and experience and now science. And I am tired of being scared away from this topic by leftist women. And I think they try to scare us away from this topic.” She continued, “it’s hard to argue that abortion for any reason at all after five months is okay when we have been conducting in utero surgery on unborn children as young as four months for a very long time. … And so I think we need to just keep pressing this topic and not be afraid to bring it up because the left really wants to shut this conversation down.”
Fiorina added that she does make exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother because “when a woman has been subjected to an act of violence, which is what rape or incest is, really, against her choice. … And so, then I think we have to have really special empathy for the pain and suffering that she goes through.” And that people should have “empathy” for those facing the decision of whether or not to have an abortion.
