Fox News political analyst Brit Hume made a passionate moral argument against abortion on “Special Report” on Wednesday that just may go viral after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) uploaded it on his YouTube channel.
Referencing the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Hume said the Supreme Court decided that a “generalized right to privacy that they basically invented meant that a woman has a constitutional right to snuff out an unborn life — a human being with a beating heart.”
“That’s what a fetus as young as six weeks is,” he added.
Hume expressed shock that, by some estimates, as many as 55 million abortions have occurred since the landmark ruling.
Since 1973, he continued, “science has given us an ever clearer picture of just how much of a baby a fetus is.”
“At 20 weeks, we know now, these tiny creatures can hear, even recognize a mother’s voice. Their toenails are growing and their hearts beat loud enough to be heard by a stethoscope,” Hume said. “The moral case for allowing such beings to be killed grows ever weaker, and it’s advocates resort to evermore absurd euphemisms to describe what they support.”
He mocked pro-abortion advocates for claiming they are just “pro-choice,” that it’s not about killing unborn babies, it’s about “reproductive health.”
Hume praised the “March for Life” protesters who descended upon Washington D.C. on Wednesday, saying they come back every year to remind the country that there is “something deeply false and wrong about all this.”
When Bret Baier asked him where the abortion debate goes from here, Hume said he looks to science to prove more conclusively that fetuses can feel pain, if possible, from the beginning. That would “change everything,” he concluded.
