Wasserman-Schultz Afraid to Say Whether Her Kids Were Human Beings Before They Were Born

Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz must have gone to the same class on how to deflect personhood/abortion questions from the media. Both responded pretty much exactly the same way when pressed about whether or not her own unborn children are human beings.

Their answer is to change the subject. Pelosi accused her questioner of pushing an “ideology” over an issue that “has no place in public policy.”

Wasserman-Schultz felt safe just repeating this mantra in response: “I believe every woman has the right to make their own reproductive choices.”

She may as well have said, “I believe the price of beans in Peru will increase with demand.” A woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices has nothing to do with whether or not the entity inside her womb is a human being.

She and Pelosi have to deflect, because they know a yes or no answer will be inconsistent with their own ideologies.
