Geraldo Rivera: ‘Women’s Right to Choose vs. Pro-Life Movement Was Decided’ Yesterday


Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera argued that the pro-choice vs. anti-abortion debate was “decided” yesterday after Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, finished their testimonies.

“We experienced a hinge in history, I want to be very clear what happened here,” Rivera said on Fox & Friends this morning. “The woman’s right to choose versus the pro-life movement was decided for the next generation yesterday. This is a very very big deal.”

He continued:

“This ninth justice, this was the swing vote in roe v wade, this is what motivates everybody on both sides whether you have abortion rights, or whether you have pro-life and protect the unborn, this is the clash that happened yesterday, it was decided yesterday, this is a generational thing, the next generation will all be impacted by what happened yesterday in the Judiciary Committee and what will happen as they vote this morning at 9:00.”

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt pushed back on Rivera’s claims, saying, “There’s no way he is going to overturn Roe v. Wade!”

“They’re not going to touch that,” she added.

Rivera replied that Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual misconduct, could begin overturning the landmark abortion case “very easily.”

“All you have to do to erode Roe v. Wade is say a child is viable earlier and earlier and earlier in the pregnancy, so now abortion is only legal when the child is not yet viable,” Rivera said. “Liability will continue to shrink, it’ll be at 6 months, it’ll be at 5 months, it’ll be at 4 months, it’ll be at 3 months and in some states, you’re absolutely right, it will be a conception.”

He concluded by saying Kavanaugh’s seeming survival of the intense Senate grilling session yesterday was “a watershed moment” that “defines the division in this country.”
