Shocker! NBC's Holt Guides Candidates Into the 'Right to an Abortion'


Forget the candidates on the stage during the first Democrat debate, the moderators seem to be taking the ball and running with it concerning where they might think the candidates should stand on the issues. And, at least one candidate showed their originality by repeating the phrasing of the moderators.

"Secretary Castro, this one is for you. All of you on stage support a woman's right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health care option," NBC moderator Lester Holt said to candidate Julian Castro before finally asking his question. "Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary?"

I thought their stance was being "pro-choice." I suppose that wasn't drastic enough for the left. "Right to an abortion" it is, I guess.

"Yes, it would. I don't believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman or let's also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, if poor, doesn't mean they shouldn't have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion."

Castro believes in "reproductive justice" as well as "reproductive freedom?" Don't worry. We don't know what that means either.

Watch below for the "right to an abortion" exchange between Holt and Castro:
