During CNN’s seven-hour Democratic climate change debate, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders embraced the idea of utilizing abortion to control the world’s population. It’s refreshing to see a communist politician stand up for his ideals, just as Comrade Stalin did before him.
A member of the audience asked the Vermont senator about human population growth during CNN’s climate town hall Wednesday. She specifically asked Sanders whether he would support measures to curb that growth.
“The answer is yes and the answer has everything to do with the fact that women, in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions,” Sanders said.
“So I think especially in poor countries around the world, where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have: something I very, very strongly support.”
So essentially, Bernie Sanders believes we need to eradicate more brown babies in poor countries around the world. I mean, that’s literally what he said, right? How is this f**king Nazi have 13% support from Democrats?
During an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Donald Trump stated women who have abortions should “be punished.” Well, okay then.
There must be “some form of punishment” for women who have abortions, Donald Trump said Wednesday afternoon during a pre-taped MSNBC town hall event. Asked by host Chris Matthews whether he believes abortion should be illegal, Trump agreed, noting that to actually ban the procedure, “you go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places, but we have to ban it.”
Pressed further on whether he believes women—rather than providers—would be punished for abortion if it were illegal, Trump said yes, but added that the exact punishment would “have to be determined.”
Trump later walked back his statement, but what is interesting to me is he believes punishing women who receive abortions would be appropriate, but punishing the doctors who perform them is inappropriate.
Look, I am 1,000% against abortions – I have four kids, after all – and I am not trying to change your mind here, but this statement like this makes Trump look like a lunatic. Walking it back is fine, but the damage has already been done. What troubles me is it appears Trump has never given any serious thought to core conservative issues, and he is about to become the GOP nominee.
I mean, good god, man, you were going on MSNBC. How can you not do your homework?
