RFK Jr’s Abortion Stance Gets Extreme

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. publicly stated his support for full-term abortions in a video interview this week.

On The Sage Steele Show, podcaster and former ESPN anchor Sage Steele asked Kennedy, “Should there be a restriction, or are you saying that all the way up to full term, a woman has a right to get an abortion?” at the outset.

“It is unlikely that any woman in history has ever said she was going to have a child; she will conceive and carry the child to term for eight months before ending the pregnancy,” Kennedy retorted. “I doubt nobody desires to carry out the task.”

Steele said, “That has occurred too many times to count, though.”

Kennedy speculated, “I am sure it has happened; I would suggest that there are extenuating factors in practically all those cases.”

Who knows, though? This is especially true in situations where drugs are involved and people’s ability to reason is impaired. Ultimately, Steele asserted that this is indeed happening.

In response, Kennedy said, “What I am saying is, I do not think any woman comes out planning, ‘I am going to carry a baby for eight months, then terminate him.”

“Yes, but even after eight months, they could decide otherwise. And they have witnessed this. Is it OK for them to continue doing it for the duration?” Steele asked.

Kennedy said, “Once more, I appreciate those who — I think there is a very, very excellent argument, a compelling argument that the state has [an] interest in safeguarding a fully-formed embryo; I certainly think that argument is quite persuasive.” Once more, I have to admit that I do not trust the government and that we should have faith in the lady. And I do not think it is a good result, since I believe that horrible things will continue to happen sometimes.

“That is something we are unable to stop,” Steele conceded.

Kennedy stated, “There will be negative things that happen in any case.”

Or, to put it another way, maintaining the status quo in light of Roe v. Wade’s overturning and allowing state governments to decide if and when a woman may have an abortion? Steele queried.

Kennedy remarked, “No, I would not leave it to the states.”

You would claim that the lady has the last word in all matters. Steele got going.

Kennedy cut in, “I would say that is up to the woman.” “The government should not get engaged.”

“Although it is full-term?” Steele queried.

“Even in the case of a full-term,” Kennedy added.

Kennedy Jr. said to NBC News last year that he would be in favor of outlawing abortions nationwide during the first three months of pregnancy, but he then changed his mind and stated, “I think a woman should be up to the option to abort a child within the first three months of life.”
