Tuesday on “Fox & Friends,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) went after Democrats who support abortion in the wake of Gov. Ralph Northam saying he supports day of birth abortion and Senate Democrats blocking a bill that would require babies born alive during abortion to receive reasonable medical care.
Huckabee questioned why Democrats would “think there is something holy about killing babies.”
“It’s hard for me even to fathom why they think there is something holy about killing babies, and especially late-term abortion. Why they would defend that and celebrate it is beyond any decent civilized American who believes that every human being has intrinsic worth and value. I simply don’t understand,” Huckabee stated.”
“What are you going to do?” he continued. “Go to the neonatal unit and say this one lives, this one doesn’t, this one is worth keeping, but this one isn’t, this is a disposable child, but this one we might decide to keep? That’s not the mark of the kind of people we are as a country. I hope this bill goes to the Senate floor and every senator has to put his or her name on that bill and stand up and say, ‘Do you believe that this is okay — to kill full-term babies?’ If you do, we all need to know it because you have no place legislating for the rest of the country.”
