The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media’s Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:
In case you missed it, BlazeTV’s Allie Stuckey made quite the pro-life stir at a House Oversight Committee hearing on state-level abortion laws on Thursday. She told the committee, in no uncertain terms, that abortion is indeed the act of “tearing a child apart limb by limb.” At one point, a Democratic committee member confronted her with the age-old canard that pro-lifers supposedly don’t care about children after they are born, but then cut the witness off and reclaimed the time once Stuckey began to challenge the underlying premise of the question.
At another point, she was cut off by the chair during her answer about whether or not there were any good reasons to procure an abortion, but was allowed to finish after protests from Republican members. She then issued a challenge to the hearing room: “Can anyone on the pro-abortion side tell me a situation outside of a defenseless child inside the womb in which it is morally justifiable to kill someone simply because they’re not wanted?”
Just before Stuckey left the hearing, Debbie Wasserman Schultz raised a question about Stuckey’s testimony, noting that she doesn’t have a professional scientific or medical background. The witness responded, “It says something when I, the one without the scientific or medical background, am the only one to give specifics on what an abortion procedure actually is.”
