During a Q&A at the College of Charleston Bully Pulpit series, a member of the audience said “I saw, in March, on Twitter, a video, you were at a town hall just like this in Cleveland, and someone asked you specifically, specifically about third trimester abortions, and you said that it’s the decision left up to the mother.”
“So, my question is this. I was born September 8th, 1989, and I want to know if you think on September 7th, 1989, my life had no value?” the man asked.
“Of course I don’t think that, and of course I’m glad that you’re here,” O’Rourke said, adding “But you referenced my answer in Ohio, and it remains the same. This is a decision that night of you nor I comment or the United States government, should be making.”
