So it looks like the janky old ladies over at The View are all up in arms about abortion again, go figure. This time they're upset at Lindsey Graham and his proposed legislation which would ban abortions after 15 weeks nationwide.
But check out this gem, as one of the hosts, Sara Haines, falsely claims that there is "no such thing as people having late-term abortions," and then immediately, without taking a breath, notes the percentage of abortions performed in the late-term category.
"He also cherry-picked the way it applies. He calls it a late term – late term abortion act. By the way, 15 weeks, for anyone that doesn't know, is one week into your second trimester and just to clear up an often-referenced myth that is used to get a certain political outcome, there is no such thing as people having late-term abortions."
"Say that again," co-host Goldberg interrupted again.
"There is no such thing as people having late-term abortions," Haines repeated, to applause from the audience.
And here's the kicker:
Haines then immediately contradicted that statement, saying that some 1.3% of abortions were performed after 21 weeks — which would generally be considered "late term."
"Say that again," Goldberg interrupted again, this time prompting laughter.
"That is only done for heartbreaking medical reasons. I have yet to see one situation where someone decides that," Haines concluded. "That is being a myth being shopped around to get a certain political outcome. And 91% of all abortions are performed in the first trimester."
So there's no such thing as late-term abortion, EXCEPT for those 12,000 or so per year. No biggie, Mrs. Haines, you just go ahead and keep spouting lies to your sheepish audience who will undoubtedly use your misinformation to fill in the bubbles on their ballot this fall.
I'm glad to see how gleeful your audience is at the thought of murdering a preborn child. You should be proud!
