The Rand Paul vs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz battle continued Monday morning.
Last Wednesday, Sen. Paul challenged the media to ask the Democratic National Committee chairwoman if she thinks “killing a 7-pound baby that’s just not born yet” is okay. Wasserman Schultz replied that she supports a woman’s right to choose and then took stabs at the senator’s recent reputation for feisty interviews with women hosts. A few days later, she continued the battle by telling MSNBC that Sen. Paul’s repeated question about a 7-pound baby was a deflection from the real issues.
And on Tuesday, the DNC chair appeared on CNN’s Wolf and further elaborated upon her beef with the senator:
We have very different definitions of personal liberty. I made that clear in my response the Democratic Party’s position is we are pro-choice. We believe a decision on a woman’s reproductive choices is best left between a woman and her doctor and I am still waiting for Rand Paul to say whether or not he supporting exceptions when a woman is raped, going to force a woman to carry a baby to term and not allow her to make that choice? When she’s the victim of rape, the victim of incest? Are we going to let a woman die? Would Rand Paul let a woman die because she’s carrying a baby or is he going to let mer make that choice with her doctor? We’re waiting on that but Rand Paul’s first day out of the gate as a candidate for president was spent not talking about the issues that matter the most to Americans — the economy, jobs, and helping people reach the middle class — but debating me on abortion.
