Traci Tong (KERA) “Now you say you have a key word, viability. What in your mind is viability? If I was, say, pregnant, 22 weeks pregnant, would you support my right to have an abortion?”
Kay Bailey Hutchison: “Yes.”
Kay Bailey Hutchison: “Yes because to me viability is probably in the six month range, the Roe vs. Wade range 5 months, 6 months, when the baby is a baby and lives. I do not think that people should abort live babes, but I do think that people should have the choice before that time. People should have the choice before that time.”
FACT: Senator Hutchinson supports aboriton and is trying to hide her own record from Texans who deserve to know the truth.
