Debbie Wasserman Schultz Challenges Rand Paul on Abortion: "Are We Going To Let A Woman Die?"


DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues the argument about abortion incited by a CNN reporter in New Hampshire last week.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, DNC CHAIRMAN: 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. I am still waiting for Rand Paul to say whether or not he supporting exceptions when a woman is raped, are we 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 her 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.
