Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was asked if he supports up-to-birth abortions during a campaign event in Cleveland, Ohio, but rather than answer the question directly, he instead pivoted to the general topic of abortion.
“Are you for or against third-trimester abortions?” I asked O’Rourke Monday.
“The question is about abortion and reproductive rights and my answer to you is that should be a decision that the woman makes. I trust her,” O’Rourke said to cheers and applause.

O’Rourke also co-sponsored a bill in 2017 that would have done away with most state restrictions on abortion.
From National Review:
“The former Texas congressman, who rose to prominence during a failed Senate run against Ted Cruz (R., Texas) last year, co-sponsored in 2017 the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have eliminated nearly all state restrictions on abortion, including so-called right-to-know laws and mandatory waiting periods.”
“O’Rourke’s refusal to engage with the policy debate surrounding third-trimester abortions in particular is broadly reflective of the Democratic presidential field, which comprises lawmakers who maintain a blanket opposition to abortion restrictions regardless of gestational age.”
Mike Adams joins Owen Shroyer live via Skype to break down an array of news stories including the push to censor nutritional / health information by big tech, medical fascism, 3-D printed gun technology, and how some feminists are calling for abortion to be an option for women after an undetermined amount of time following the birth. It could be days, weeks, or even months after the successful delivery that the mother “chooses” to abort the infant.
