-- Joining me now for their -- to think chronic rallying the radio talk show host -- -- -- powers of the Daily -- -- both are Fox News contributors.
So it's really is the discussion about trying to understand what took place in the Texas Capitol last night.
They wanted to restrict abortions to just twenty.
I am going to say justice you know what you think when he weeks is that's -- that's halfway there yet to -- to twenty weeks where is right now.
Most of the State's eight point four weeks or after such a four week you know moving that they date back -- and tighten restrictions on clinics.
Why was the Planned Parenthood -- out -- America crowd so upset.
What they they oppose this and every state they they -- this is exactly basically what taxes is trying to do is exactly what happened in Pennsylvania after the cost now.
In terms of not so much in the moving the date but all of the stuff from.
Making them into ambulatory service -- -- you have to have admitting privileges.
Because in the cost -- case they actually found.
That an independent investigation found that probably.
The one of the women who died wouldn't have died had they had.
Had met some of these requirements -- -- facilities -- and so Planned Parenthood they they oppose this across the country this is an ongoing battle that goes on all over the country.
They claim monitor that it's not something like 42 abortion clinics in the state of Texas right now.
And that if they all have to be licensed as ambulatory.
Surgery -- it will reduce the number abortion clinics to five.
And people are gonna have to go to Mexico now if they wanna get abortions this is a standard argument that -- always -- say they're pro abortion lobby they always try to go right to hyperbole that -- women are gonna have to flee to Tijuana.
Because they're not going to be able that -- have access in Texas to abortion it's all ridiculous everything in this bill is completely reasonable from the twenty week mark.
To upgrading these facilities demanding that doctors have hospital privileges within a thirty mile radius and -- anything goes wrong.
This is a direct response to the horrors that we saw on the cost Nile case.
What's really interesting here's the National Journal just -- to -- today.
That's just 48% of Americans approve of late term abortion bans 48 to 44 who oppose it.
What's really interesting when you get into the numbers -- interests and is that women by 50%.
Want these late term abortion bans they approve -- -- more than Ngo and young people but also really startling they want these fans let's let me ask you whether this is.
I can you need two more attempts at late term abortions because.
That there's an article -- tested at that point testing the burden on the five clinics if they are left with five.
To provide these health services is going to be extreme in the women and rural areas are going to be underserved and so this suggestion is.
If you drive hundreds of miles to get an abortion in the first trimester and you don't do it because -- work and you can't take care of existing kids or whatever it is and then time goes on.
Then you get past the -- -- -- week mark.
And union abortion that this is the argument that you get you know from from the plan paired -- that's it's gonna lead to more late term -- -- you're.
And I don't honestly follow the -- because you -- say I -- making it harder for them to get abortions.
Early on I turn up.
He mean by closing at the clinics wolf first of all their claims are always exaggerated about how many clinics are gonna close so I I don't think -- that many -- are gonna close and I would also have to say.
-- -- clinics have to close because they're not meeting health standards than there's a problem you know I mean that they should be meeting basic health standards and and so I think that you know you want them to be safe if it -- -- and I also.
The other problem is an idea that.
You have to be a person thinks it's okay to be aborting -- when he -- healthy fetus I mean I'm just not one of those people.
-- to remember these are healthy fetuses there's an exception in this bill on taxes that if it's severely.
I'm deformed or did what you know we're mapping out -- mounties say that you -- abort it so we're talking about healthy babies and I'm sorry I just can't get on mass out of line with them and I don't think most Americans can't and I also.
-- making and to the point that you raised about their argument saying -- you're making it more difficult I mean.
Within a twenty week frame time frame you ought to be able to make that decision -- if you've got a much harder and -- -- in your doctor by twenty weeks you should be able to make that decision you know.
But but the twenty weeks seems to be a real problem for for those who are objecting and I mean they've come out and said this is going to be a real harm to women and you know women have a right to choose and even that president last night -- -- -- You know tweak the Twitter.
Service that represents the president set out something saying.
Something like something interesting is happening.
In Texas tonight -- they -- and I have in front of me I think yes something special is happening.
In Austin tonight's at a post of president Obama's official Twitter account.
You know basically coming out -- saying it's special to try to shut down an attempt to.
Make it unlawful to -- -- when he one week old fetus.
He's really going out there.
I personally think it's sick.
I really do I added there's nothing like this is not.
Most Americans do not think it's okay to abort a healthy fetus at twenty weeks.
People -- had a lot of time to think about -- an abortion up to that point.
You are now asking them to stay pregnant for less time than they've already been pregnant right to give birth to this child I'm not.
I'm not trying to downplay that it that there are bad situations in their hard things but we are talking about human life here and I think most Americans would agree with -- -- that's citizen about the requiring these things to be more ambulatory surgical centers because a yes that would help protect the women if something goes wrong in the procedure.
But at some point you have to consider what is gonna happen to a twenty week old fetus that's born alive.
Our 22 legal fetuses born alive and -- this center at which the -- being performed.
Handle that -- and if you don't have a mother doctor who's concerned about that is that that's an appropriate place for the state to say.
Well we have an interest in protecting that that.
Eighties and rice exactly right and again and -- -- -- cost now because what we saw him in Pennsylvania was that -- -- state board says help thwart.
All of the -- state run agencies that were supposed to be overseeing abortion clinics like mr.
Gus -- just did not do their jobs that there.
Again this is a completely reasonable bill for the president of the United States intervene in a state matter on this issue I -- -- -- and this is so out of line for him -- special time and call -- use that adjective special.
Remember -- -- Obama when he was a state senator in Illinois.
Voted not once not twice but three times to support this kind of infanticide so.
You know it shows us where it's coming from and it also shows he hasn't changed Pam Garcia good to -- -- -- here on the set.
