In a recent debate with challenger Tammy Duckworth (D), Walsh said he was against abortion “without exception,” including rape, incest and in cases in which the life or health of the mother was in jeopardy. Wow, that’s pretty extreme. Maybe he just misspoke? Reporters asked Walsh after the debate whether he was really meaning to say that it was never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother. Walsh responded, “Absolutely.”
“With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance … There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”
Isn’t it amazing how quickly medical science advances nowadays? It seems like it was only two months ago that a 16 year old leukemia patient died from cancer because the Dominican government would not allow her an abortion or chemotherapy. Oh wait, that actually was just two months ago. Wow! So somehow in the past two months researchers have figured out a way to avoid abortion even in cancer patients! We must not be following the news closely enough because we definitely never heard about that discovery, which would pretty much be one of the biggest medical breakthroughs in history.
