'What a Stupid Question': Ala. Sen. Doug Jones Laughs At Whether Abortion Should Be Banned After 5 Months


Apparently, Alabama Sen. Doug Jones thinks the question of whether it’s ethical to murder viable infants in the womb is “stupid.”

Or, at least, that’s what he told one person who asked him whether abortion after five months gestation, when a baby can survive outside the womb, should be banned.

“What stupid question have you got for me today?” Jones said, walking up to the Capitol.

“Do you think abortion should be banned after five months?” the questioner asked.

“Should abortion be banned after five…as I said, what a stupid question,” Jones laughed. 

“You’re voting on it next week, sir,” the man behind the camera continued.

“Yeah, and I’ll vote on it next week just like I did the last time,” the senator said dismissively as he walked away.

According to a Gallup poll, less than one-third of Americans (28 percent) say elective abortion should be legal beyond the first trimester, which ends roughly around the third month of a pregnancy. Only 13 percent said they believe abortion should be legal after the second trimester.
