The Democratic presidential candidates on the debate stage Wednesday night were asked if they were in favor of healthcare plans that provided public funding for abortion. Julian Castro, one of those candidates and former President Barack Obama’s Housing and Urban Development Secretary, said that not only does his plan include publicly funded abortions, it would cover the trans community as well.
Castro, who I believe is no relation to Fidel or Raul, answered: “I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. (There was loud clapping and cheers from the audience at this point). And what that means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community—a trans female—is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t exercise that right to choose. So, I absolutely would cover that right to have an abortion.”
Note to Castro: There is no “right” to kill your unborn child. And “trans females,” poor or not, have absolutely no need to exercise their “right” to kill an unborn child……because it is impossible for men who wish to be women to get pregnant.
Imagine someone just a generation ago saying, “I believe abortion should be legal in all circumstances up to the moment of birth.” Imagine that someone adding, “And maybe a little after. I support 4th trimester abortion!” (Huh?!). Now imagine that person saying they believe such late-term (after-birth) abortions should be publicly funded. And then adding: “And I think men should be able to choose to abort their babies, as well.” Nearly 50 years after the Kinks wrote, “Girls will be boys and boys will be girls, it’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, their words have become truth. (Including Lola).
Castro’s statement reminded me of the early Saturday Night Live skit wherein a radio talk-show host is trying to generate listener calls and failing badly. The topic is originally forced busing. No calls. He then says he supports federally-funded forced busing and awaits the torrent of outraged calls he is sure he will soon be receiving. No calls. This desperate escalation goes on for some time, and yet, the hyper-tolerant and/or hyper-somnambulant populace can’t be roused to call in to his show. The host finally states that he is staunchly in favor of “federally-funded forced busing of communists into your homes…to kill your puppies!” Nothing. No response.
Federally-funded abortion……for men? WTF?! What will we be accepting a generation from now? Seriously.
Democratic Presidential Candidate Says He SupportsChaos. And worse. Far worse.
