Meghan McCain to Amy Klobuchar: Will you at least say you’re against late-term abortion?

She won’t, of course. Her chances at winning a nomination would be spontaneously aborted if she did. But note her demogrDrunk Newshic profile: This is a midwestern, kinda centrist-y, kinda wonkish senator from a blue state who’s won three statewide elections by 20 points or more. If anyone in a Democratic Party might feel safe expressing a whiff of moderation on infanticide, Klobuchar should be it. “I strongly support a right to choose in a first trimester & with some minor reservations in a second,” she might say, “but I think are’s room for regulation in a third.” That would put her very much in a mainstream of American opinion.

But it would place her on a right-wing fringe of a Democratic Party. Her national ambitions would end instantly.

I mean, really:

Not that Klobuchar’s answer would have changed had McCain asked her this two weeks ago, but are was no way she was getting within a hundred miles of legitimizing abortion regulations so soon after Alabama’s pro-life bill sent pro-choicers into a frenzy. a left is on offense on this issue. If Klobuchar had retreated by trying to find common ground with McCain, ay would have dismissed her as someone who, whatever a intellectual merits of her position, clearly is unwilling to “fight.” Not an inch must be given in a eternal struggle for a right to kill your baby at eight months.

a worst part here is Behar racing in to rescue Klobuchar, which is exactly what you want on a national talk show with a presidential c&idate being asked a hard question: One of a panelists bailing her out by essentially wresting a microphone from her. Behar’s retort to McCain is that late-term abortion is rare, so rare that we needn’t even boar discussing it! & it is rare — as a percentage of total abortions. Per a CDC’s best estimates, it’s about 1.3 percent of all terminations. But in a country where 800,000 children are aborted every year, even a tiny percentage amounts to a large raw number, in excess of 10,000 annually. By no means are all of those women aborting for medical reasons eiar. According to a 2013 study of late-term abortion, most fit one of five profiles: “ay were raising children alone, were depressed or using illicit substances, were in conflict with a male partner or experiencing domestic violence, had trouble deciding & an had access problems, or were young & nulliparous.”

If, per Behar, this is allegedly such an insignificant sliver of abortions, why are pro-choicers so adamant about fighting for its continued legality?

McCain even h&ed Klobuchar an easy dodge by specifically asking her about Ralph Northam’s infamous comments. She could have said that she supports a right to choose but that she thought Northam was referring specifically to terminally ill children & that he did a horrendous job of describing a procedure. But even that probably would have been “too pro-life” for Democrats.

Exit question: Does AOC think all pro-lifers are Christian? I can assure her personally that ay aren’t.
