Watch: Beto O’Rourke Shuts Down Right-Winger Who Claimed He Should Have A Say In Abortion As A Former Fetus

Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic presidential candidate from Texas, held a campaign event at the College of Charleston this week where he answered questions from the crowd. One man, in particular, tried to confront O’Rourke over his plan to fund family planning centers to have safe and legal abortions.

The man claimed that as a former fetus, he has more rights than a woman does when it comes to abortions.

The man noted that O’Rourke had previously said that abortions in the third trimester should be left up to the woman.

“I was born Sept. 8, 1989,” the man said. “And I want to know if you think on Sept. 7, 1989, my life had no value.”

“Of course I don’t think that,” O’Rourke replied. “Of course, I’m glad that you’re here.”

“You referenced my answer in Ohio and it remains the same,” he added. “This a decision that neither you, nor I, nor the United States government should be making. That’s a decision for the woman to make.”

“Unless we had any illusion that the achievements we’ve made are protected forever, that has been shattered,” O’Rourke explained.

O’Rourke pointed out that more than a quarter of family planning centers in Texas have closed due to restrictions passed by the Republican-controlled government in the state.

“We are losing the lives of women in our state as a result,” he said. “I don’t question the decision that a woman makes. Only she knows what she knows and I want to trust her with that.”
