Ben Carson Doubles Down On Abortion: No Exception For Rape Or Incest

Some of the best people were almost aborted.

As already noted by Driftglass, MSNBC, yet again, gives a giant eff you to all its viewers. The once liberal-ish network added Bloomberg Politics' With All Due Respect to its line-up, and it included this gem of an interview with the life-loving Dr. Ben Carson. MSNBC thinks that we need more Halperin and Heilemann, in case Morning Joe didn't give us enough of them. Maybe they should give a few more hours of programming to Chuck Todd, why not?

Carson explains that since he's the only candidate who's also a retired neurosurgeon, and he's the only person to come up with new techniques and procedures to save the lives of infants, so who could compete with that? What have these other Republican Presidential Candidates actually done to save anyone? In other words, we know that he has saved lives, and he promises to keep all fetuses from being aborted, even those who are the result of unspeakable awful.

Dr. Ben Carson is asked, 'What is your position on abortion?'

CARSON: I believe that abortion should not be done, I believe that it's murder. In cases of rape and incest too? Including in cases of rape and incest. I know people who are the result of rape, James Robinson, the Televangelist, was a result of a rape. His mother was getting an abortion, it got botched, she thought the better of it and kept it. He's had a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of lives.

I suppose that settles it then? Televangelists are wonderful people. A woman should have to birth the result of a violent physical assault against her, because Carson thinks life is sacred and he knows who James Robinson is. What if James Robinson had been a Mooslim, one who has been radicalized? What then? Is this going to become another Baby Hitler hypothetical for the extreme, pro-forced birth crowd?
