Rand Paul Slams Media Wonders Why They Don’t Ask Democrats About Aborting 7-Pound Babies in the Womb

Rand Paul is getting sick and tired of the left-wing media bias he constantly confronts on abortion. He wonders why the media won’t pester Democrats who have no problem aborting seven-pound babies in the womb.

Paul says he doesn’t want to be grilled by the media on abortion anymore until Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is forced to answer probing questions on it too.

And Wasserman Schultz is hitting back — highlighting Paul’s testy interviews with female television anchors, too, by saying she hopes he can “respond without ‘shushing’ me.”

Paul, the Kentucky Republican senator who launched his 2016 presidential campaign this week, bristled at a question about abortion while talking with reporters in New Hampshire on Wednesday.

“Why don’t you ask the DNC, ‘Is it OK to kill a seven-pound baby in the uterus?'” Paul said.

His comment came after The Associated Press published a report that said Paul had ducked questions about his views on what exceptions — if any — he’d support if abortion were to be banned. Paul has previously supported measures that included exceptions for situations like rape and incest, as well as measures without those exceptions.

In a press conference shortly after the AP’s story was published, Paul said discussions of abortion focus too much on “exact details” on the right, and that Democrats should face similarly complex questions.

Well, what do you think? Does he have a point?
