CONTROVERSY-PRONE “REPUBLICAN” OFFERS SHOCKING COMMENTARY DURING ABORTION DEBATE
Only this time his remarks were captured on video …
During a bizarre anti-life filibuster (led by supposedly pro-life state senator Lee Bright) on the floor of the S.C. Senate this week, Corbin rose to lend Bright his support.
“Senator, do you hear as often as I do that it all boils down to a woman’s right to chose?” Corbin asked Bright.
“I hear that – I never hear about the woman in the womb – which is half the women, half the people getting aborted are women,” Bright responded.
“That’s a very good answer, Senator,” Corbin said.
Okay … no objection from us on that exchange.
But then Corbin offered this doozy …
Now if you equate choice with, um, your rights, that’s a valid argument. But would you not agree Senator that a woman always has a right to choose at the time of conception?
Wait … what?
Video taken from the floor of the State Senate shows Corbin punctuating his remark not as a question, but rather as a definitive statement of fact – pointing his finger emphatically as he made the pronouncement.
Even Bright – widely regarded as one of the dimmest bulbs in the Senate – recognized the lunacy of what Corbin was saying.
“Well now I – I wouldn’t go that far,” he responded, “cause of rape and incest … because of the rape issue there’s not always a choice there.”
Well … yeah.
Corbin’s later, rambling remarks seemed to indicate some understanding on his part that a woman who was raped had no choice at the moment of conception … however his original commentary (preserved on the S.C. State House video feed) was unambiguous in stating the opposite.
This website is adamantly pro-life, however unlike Bright we believe in exceptions in the event of rape, incest or imminent danger to the life of a mother. We also support a woman’s right to use so-called “morning-after pills” which prevent pregnancies.
