Congressman Mike Johnson of Louisiana recently appeared at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, during which he questioned abortion rights advocate Aimee Arrambide, Executive Director of Avow, about her stance that abortion should be unrestricted.

Ms. Arrambide had testified that she is “unapologetic in seeking unrestricted abortion access.” By unrestricted, she means even late-term abortions and partial abortions, since when Johnson asked her about those, she testified that she trusts “all people to determine what they can and can’t do with their bodies.”

Here is how Johnson shut her down:

Johnson asked: “If it is not lawful and morally acceptable to take the life of a 10-year-old child, I assume you agree with that, right? That would be wrong, correct?”

To which Arrambide replied: “I believe that is wrong,”

Johnson kept on: “And a 2-year-old child, same thing, that would be murder, we all agree that is wrong. What is the principle distinction between the human being that is 2 years old or nine months old or one week old or an hour old, than one that is eight inches further up the birth canal in the utero? What’s the difference? Why is it OK in the latter case and not the former cases?”

To which Arrambide could only reiterate: “I trust people to determine what to do with their own bodies—full stop.”

Johnson finished: “Wow. And that describes right there exactly what this is about. There’s a legal issue here but underneath that is a moral issue. It’s about reality, it’s about science, the advancement of medical technology. You’re talking about unborn children and your full stop is that you will support the termination of that child at any time and that is frightening.”

Pro abortion advocates make no sense, and Johnson clearly pointed that out. Anyone who has seen a newborn baby understands it is a life and was a life just minutes before, when it was still in the womb. How do you think that they reconcile this with what they say? Is it even possible?
