During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Republican Rep. Dan Bishop of North Carolina asked abortion rights advocatei Aimee Arrambide f she supports any restrictions on abortion at all, even at the moment of birth.
“You testified that you are, quote, unapologetic and seeking unrestricted abortion access. So, I’m wondering, at what point is it not okay to abort a child, what age of gestation?” Bishop asked Arrambide.
“I trust all people to determine what they can and can’t do with their bodies. Full stop,” Arrambide responded.
“Okay, so you support late-term abortion?” the congressman asked.
“I support all people and trust people,” Arrambide repeated.
“Do you support partial-birth abortion? In other words, the child is half delivered and then the woman says, ‘my right. I want to take that one out.’ Do you support that?” Bishop asked.
“I trust people to make decisions about their bodies,” Arrambide said again.
Bishop then inquired if Arrambide would at least agree that taking the life of a two-year-old child would be morally wrong. When she hesitantly agreed, he asked her to explain the principle distinction between a human being that is “two years old, or nine months old, or one week old, or an hour old” and one that is “eight inches farther up the birth canal.”
“What’s the difference? Why is it okay in the latter case and not the former?” he asked.
After several seconds of open-mouthed astonishment, Arrambide repeated, “I trust people to determine what to do with their own bodies. Full stop….”
The above comes from a May 19 posting on The Blaze.
Watch the 3-minute segment on YouTube.
I think this woman supports murder: Full stop.
Very ignorant, her babyish “hippie-style” testimony was a disaster! Watch on YouTube! No brain! No mature reasoning ability! No Moral Conscience! Not a grown-up woman! Ridiculous!
Some people are just horrible. Full stop!
Bob One for once I agree with you 100 percent…but you are too kind in your description
The Congressman asked a legitimate question and he, and all of us, deserve an honest answer.
Deacon Anderson, the Congressman cannot get a reasoned answer from someone who looks so grievously bewildered. More, she testified that  she could not define what a woman is and  biological men can get pregnant. This is the “gender fluidity” nonsense the WOKE insist that teachers drill into children, starting at kindergarten.
Has the world gone mad? No, only the Biden et al. squad. The rest of us need to raise our voices constantly, loudly and insistently to stop the madness.
America is a doomed society because we have educated two generations of idiots who are now taking control of social institutions. This woman probably got A’s in high school and college, yet she is incapable of rational discourse, is utterly ignorant, and can only fall back on repeating the currently acceptable vapid, woke talking points lest she be expelled from the Democrat tribe. Look at her vacuous expression. She was called by Democrats to testify in Congress as an expert witness. God help us.
There are such things as family curses. All families have them to a certain degree since the Fall. The Bible teaches that, and so do Catholic exorcists. The saying, “The fruit does not fall far from the tree,” expresses that, meaning children most often follow the bad example of their parents and relatives and have a hard time overcoming their bad habits or sins. Such curses follow generation after generation unless they are broken. She needs to stop emulating her father if he was an abortionist.
That pic is begging to be made into a meme
How ’bout this?
A penny for her thoughts seems expensive.
“I can determine what to do with my own body”– irrational, immature, smart-aleck adolescent thinking! No, a pregnant mom has another tiny, helpless little person, made by God, in her womb– there are TWO bodies, in this case, not ONE! And the mother has absolutely no right to “determine” to kill that separate person, the precious baby, inside her womb! A baby is always a responsibility to love, protect, and care for! If a mother cannot care for her baby, then it is her responsibility to seek adoption services for the child. That should be the law. No exceptions.
Thanks, Linda Maria.
Does it surprise anyone that she was raised Catholic? Her dad is an abortionist. Figure that one out: mom and dad both Catholic, dad is an abortion doctor, she’s raised Catholic, and she becomes a rabid abortion advocate. Demons are definitely in the church and in some Catholics. She was probably raised to get her first communion and confirmation. How would any parish allow an abortion doctor to receive communion and be in the parish? The coup d’etat would be if she’s lesbian.
How juvenile on so many fronts. The picture is purposefully chosen to render the person as something other than they may be. One could have created a panoramic of pics showing her answering with less than the expression shown which was meant to demean her (“utterly ignorant”) and thus give the writer added justification for her ridicule. Literally sophomoric at best. Likely none would appreciate someone catching the pope or bishop with a weird facial expression, and then using that to justify saying how stupid they are. (See STOP THE MADNESS’ reply wherein he/she determines that the pic shows that the speaker cannot answer a question).
The Congressman’s question is just shy of being a loaded question, aimed to force the person answering that no matter how they answer, something will be misconstrued and show the Congressman’s view as the moral view.
I didn’t “determine”, intuit, imagine or anything else about the questions—or answers—to which you refer. I watched the hearing on CSPAN at which she was asked those questions and gave those answers. I prefer to believe my own eyes and ears rather than your lies.
Pray for this woman’s conversion.
