Things did not go well for Maryland representative Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday when he questioned a pro-life advocate. But things got much worse when he began questioning a Democratic witnesses. The witness demonstrated just how far removed Democrats are from the “party of science.”
Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) asked Dr. Yashica Robinson, a board member of Physicians for Reproductive Health, “How can one be regarded as human completely? What distinguishes man from other animals?”
Dr. Robinson didn’t want to respond in a manner that might suggest that a fetus is a “human being,” but her response was extremely wanting. The doctor, who one would assume has a scientific background, gave this answer.
“What makes someone a human being is their birth… That’s why we have birthdays,” Robinson stated.
The baby is not human until the day before birth. A frog that is born, on the other hand, is a human? This sounds like what she was saying. She didn’t give a very scientific or competent response.
She also informed us that she is a “proud abortion provider,” which I find interesting given her previous statements. When asked if she’s ever had human limbs — arms or legs — separate from the fetus’ body during an abortion at 20 weeks, she refuses to answer, claiming that his language is “inflammatory.”
Why won’t she respond if she’s proud? Because then she’d have to admit the human aspects of the baby for whom she wants to deny humanity and the “science” of the procedure. You’re not supposed to think about that because doing so might cause you to reconsider your position on abortion if you’ve been in favor of it. That isn’t an option. They believe “truth is inflammatory,” hence we can’t have it.
