‘Reasonable Person’ Ben Carson Compares Women Seeking Abortions to Slave-Owners.

The Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Sunday he believed that abortion should be outlawed even in cases of rape and incest, comparing the procedure with slavery. “I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way,” Mr.“In the ideal situation, the mother should not believe that the baby is her enemy,” Carson replied, “and should not be looking to terminate the baby.” He went on to say that while mothers’ protective instincts for their babies are stronger than anyone else’s, expectant mothers are being told that “that baby is their enemy and that they have the right to kill it.” “During slavery — and I know that’s one of those words you’re not supposed to say, but I’m saying it — during slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought that they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave,” Carson said. “Anything that they chose to do.The waterfall of word garbage that has been tumbling out of Ben Carson’s mouth rages on today, with a quote that manages to neatly link abortions, rape and slave ownership all into one great, stinking pile.

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday, Carson was asked about a comment from Donald Trump, the long-term GOP frontrunner who this week fell behind Carson in polling in Iowa. Where would be?” Carson, who is challenging Donald Trump for the role of frontrunner in the battle for the GOP presidential nomination, said he would “love” to see Roe v.

Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, overturned, with little room for exceptions. “I’m a reasonable person, and if people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, I’ll listen,” Carson told host Chuck Todd. We informed Ben, but he was sleeping.” He repeated the charge on CNN on Sunday, saying Carson was “lower energy” than the former Florida governor Jeb Bush, whose sluggish campaign led him this week to make financial cuts.

A series of surveys have shown that a clear majority of Americans believe there should be access to safe legal abortions, in most of all cases, even if they may not opt for such a procedure themselves. Carson said that an abortion to save a woman’s life is “an extraordinarily rare situation,” but one where “there’s room to discuss” terminating pregnancy. Carson is a retired neurosurgeon, known for being the principal surgeon in the first separation of twins conjoined at the head in which both twins survived. The figure is higher among women A Pew survey this summer found 55 per cent of US adults say it should be legal in all or most cases, compared with 40 per cent who say it should be illegal. Where would we be?” Rising in the polls in Iowa — with its deeply evangelical Republican caucusgoers — Carson called for overturning the Supreme Court’s Roe v.

Referring to that medical career, as he has often done when asked about his lack of experience in elections or public office, he said: “I will tell you, in terms of energy, I’m not sure that there’s anybody else running who’s spent 18 or 20 hours intently operating on somebody.” An Associated Press-GFK poll released on Sunday had 77% of registered Republican voters saying they would prefer an “outsider” candidate to a professional politician, and 65% holding a favourable impression of Carson. Carson said he had received positive feedback from some Jews for the comparisons, which others have called inflammatory. “In the last several weeks, I’ve heard from many people in the Jewish community, including rabbis, who said, ‘You’re spot on. This is hardly the first time Carson has compared something to slavery. “Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson said in 2013. “And it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care.

You are exactly right. and I think it’s — you know, some of the people in your business, quite frankly, who like to try to stir things up and try to make this into a big horrible thing,” he said. “And, of course, for people who aren’t really thinking deeply, you know, that resonates. And I’m a very different person now.” Carson, the author of a number of bestselling books, has often told the story of his wayward youth and the time he attempted to stab a friend. Carson on immigration and called him “a very low energy person,” but he seemed perplexed at how the soft-spoken doctor had seized the lead in Iowa. But as POLITICO reported, he also “has referred women to doctors who perform abortions [and] was a trustee of a foundation that gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood.” And that will be self-evident.” Asked why he chose so often to refer to the Nazis – in a 2014 discussion of his treatment by the Internal Revenue Service he said the US was living “in a Gestapo age” – Carson offered an echo of Trump’s insistence that he will win the Hispanic vote despite his strong anti-immigrant rhetoric.
