When Ben Carson Is Pressed on His Anti-Abortion Stance, He Quietly Throws Down a Challenge to Those Who ‘Would Like to Kill a Baby’

During Ben Carson’s “Meet the Press” interview that aired Sunday, host Chuck Todd asked the Republican presidential candidate about abortion.

“Does life begin at conception?” Todd asked. “I believe it does,” Carson answered.

    I can’t remember another politician* that spoke with such clarity before. Those were straight answers.

    *He’s not a politician yet, just a candidate.

      I don’t know if he has the charisma to defeat the great firebrand (Trump) but I’m starting to be won over by Carson’s quiet strength, (seeming) integrity and confidence.

      • The Butterfly

        He is just not afraid to say what he really thinks, even if it is politically incorrect, or if it means he loses the race. It’s like he would rather lose than compromise himself. It’s very refreshing.

    Roe v/s Wade should be abolished. In the US, it should be kicked down to state level, where it, and almost all, legislation belongs.

    I keep bringing this question up which is is masturbation going to be banned and how deep is the US government going to go into people’s homes in terms of authoritarian control. Don’t forget that statism goes both ways because there are such thing as right wing authoritarian statists on the authoritarian side of the spectrum. The fact is Carson when interviewed by Beck just gave answers that were instant without critical thinking and reasoning other than what his ideology tells people. I think abortion will always be part of the West and that is something that won’t change. What is fascinating to me is why is life unimportant to the pro-austerity and cutting crowd after birth?! Also, wars are very much wanted by the authoritarian right and yet they cannot see their hypocrisy or double standards. Frankly, war is good for business and why the War on Terror cannot end. The US has to invade Iran and Syria and Russia and China for their goal of the Bretton Woods being complete. Don’t forget that US dollar world reserve currency status is at stake. Even this week, it was stated that China is now going to have their Yuan be added to a basket of world reserve currencies. The US is not doing so well and their world reserve status is in question!

    Roe v. Wade is never going to be gotten rid of other than in the Hickton states.
