In a press release, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said that she did not support any government restrictions on abortion: “period.”

In a New Hampshire press conference earlier Wednesday, Republican Kentucky Senator Rand Paul challenged the press to ask Wasserman Schultz, ”Is it okay to kill a 7 pound baby in the uterus?” Wasserman Schultz responded to say, well, basically yes.

“Here’s an answer. I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul. We know you want to allow government officials like yourself to make this decision for women — but do you stand by your opposition to any exceptions, even when it comes to rape, incest, or life of the mother? Or do we just have different definitions of ‘personal liberty’? And I’d appreciate it if you could respond without ’shushing’ me.” [Emphasis added]

Wasserman Schultz’ beliefs place her far outside of the political mainstream. According to the most recent Gallup poll, only 28 percent of Americans believe abortion should be “legal under any circumstances.”
