White house hopeful Beto O’rourke seems to be the practice of third-trimester abortions approved at a campaign event in Ohio on Monday, less than a month after the Senate Democrats a bill that requires blocked, doctors for the medical care for newborns in the midst of a swirling child-killing controversy in Virginia.

The third trimester extends from 28. Week of pregnancy up to birth, and polls consistently show that nearly 80 percent of Americans are against such late abortions.

“Are you abortion for the third trimester?”, a participant of the election campaign event in Cleveland, asked O’rourke, prior to the description of the medical alternatives to such procedure and the medical necessity of late-term abortions are riding. “Do you want to live the life of third-trimester babies protect? … Are you abortion for or against the third trimester?”

O’rourke replied: “The question is about abortion and reproductive rights. And, my answer to you is, should the makes a decision the woman. I trust her.”

He then took a quick other question, as prolonged applause broke out.

Fox News reached O’rourke campaign, to confirm its position on third-trimester abortions, but did not receive a reply.

Alexandra de Sanctis, editor of the conservative “National Review”, which is characterized O’rourke’s remark as a cynical sleight of hand.

“Notice how Beto articulate takes on a question about abortion *fetal viability* and the medical details of these procedures and confirmed it on the lot when you have a question about “abortion and reproductive rights,” tweeted de Sanctis. “This is to defend what you have to do to that third-trimester abortions.”


O’rourke already has become known, in the election campaign for the speak in generalities, and it remained unclear whether he specifically endorse third-term abortions, while his comments on Monday. In January, O’rourke a widely panned interview with The Washington sat Post, in which he refused to provide specifics on a range of political issues. Last week, O’rourke said he was “alive,” for his answers in the interview-including when he is offered the following recipe for the immigration crisis: “I know.”

However, there was perhaps at least a note on O’rourke’s intention in his career as a legislator. He is a co-Sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, if he is a Texas member of Congress in the year 2017 — a bill that raised would have the most States, restrictions on abortion, including waiting times.

Abortion already has to be feared as a hot-button issue in the upcoming presidential campaign as a progressive, that the new conservative majority on the Supreme Court could roll back the law on abortion, which for generations, while the conservatives have accused prominent Democrats of indifference to child death.

All the prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate in last month elected a Born-Alive abortion Survivors Protection Act in the last month, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris, of California, and Cory Booker from New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand in New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

The GOP-backed bill would have required “care, not health-practitioners-gift” at the time of the birth, to preserve, even in the case of a failed abortion, to “exercise the same degree of skill, care and diligence, the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious doctor would do to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”

In response, the President of Trump tweeted that “This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.” Many Democrats still had the bill as a stunt.

The legislation was introduced after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, was confirmed by post-birth abortions, the discussion on The repeal of a state Act, bill to repeal the restrictions on third-trimester abortions. Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, a sponsor of the bill, was asked at a hearing, if a woman shortly before the birth and Dilatation even abortion demand.

“My bill would allow that, Yes,” said Tran.


Northam, in a later interview with a radio station, secured Tran. “When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent, obviously, the mother, with the consent of the doctors, more than one doctor, by the way,” he said. “And, it happens in the cases where there is severe deformity, a fetus is not viable.”

Northam continued, “So, in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be comfortable. The infant would be revived, if what is desired by the mother and the family, and then a discussion would arise between the doctors and the mother. So, I think that was really wrong.”
