• Tulsi Gabbard Starting to See the Light on the Horror of Abortion

    Surge Summary: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard makes another break with her fellow Democratic presidential candidates, conceding third-semester abortions probably ought to be outlawed. This isn’t the first time she’s differed with popular Leftist opinion.

    What’s going on with Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard? The Hawaiian Senator keeps turning in some common sense reflections.

    From Michael Van Der Galien/PJ Media:

    At a certain moment, Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard seems to believe, an unborn baby becomes a human being. That’s why there must be regulations in place to protect the baby in the third trimester.

    So, the formerly pro-life lawmaker’s conscience isn’t totally seared when it comes to the legality of killing human beings in the womb. Good to find out.

    In a recent interview with Dave Rubin, Gabbard told him that although she’s “libertarian” on the issue of abortion, she does believe there have to be some “restrictions.” Asked when, exactly, she answered: “I think the third trimester. Unless a woman’s life or severe health consequences is at risk, then there shouldn’t be an abortion in the third trimester.”

    As National Review discloses, when the thirty-eight-year-old was politically active as a younger woman, she actually claimed anti-abortion allegiances. She, perplexingly, explains it was her deployment to Iraq that changed her opinion on this life-and-death matter.

    Which doesn’t seem to make a whole lotta sense. Hunting down blood-thirsty terrorists that prey on the innocent makes it more palpable to prey on innocents within the womb? Right.

    Meanwhile, Congresswoman Gabbard has garnered a revolting100 percent rating from the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

    “You’d think that this would be good enough for the far-left base of the Democratic Party,” writes Van Der Galien,

    [B]ut no. Nowadays, so-called liberals demand full permission to kill unborn babies whenever and however they want. 39th week? Let’s do it! Booya! Cut the poor little girl in tiny pieces and take her out! After all, she hasn’t breathed on her own yet!

    So, it’s actually very courageous of Gabbard to take this position.

    Cut to the chase: Good for Tulsi Gabbard for waking up to the reality that a baby eight-months along in utero ought not be vulnerable to being cut to pieces by Dr. Aborto, M.D. Her profession will probably cost her some Donkey Party support. But she’s got a long way to go before her pro-life bona fides are anything close to luminous.

    Van Der Galien refreshes our memories that

    [e]arlier, she explained that she disagrees with her fellow Democrats on impeachment. “You know, I think it’s important for us to think about what is in the best interest of the country and the American people, and continuing to pursue impeachment is something that I think will only further to tear our country apart,” she said.

    To top it off, she now has the audacity to disagree with them on that other big issue, abortion. That takes guts.

    Of course, it also means that she’s done for. She won’t win this thing… but we knew that already. What she can succeed in, however, is showing other Democrats just what it means to possess this little thing called common sense.

    Let’s keep praying for Rep. Gabbard that she keeps moving toward the light; toward the reasonableness that is in short supply among her Leftist colleagues; toward the full restoration of her conscience.
