Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson took a swipe at the abortion movement in new comments Thursday, saying it concerns “the morality of our society.”
“I think it’s a critical issue because we are talking about the morality of our society,” Carson said.
“Are we going off the deep-end here or are we still loving and compassionate people?”
Carson was then asked about a new abortion bill called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which is getting pushback from Democrats in Congress. The bill would require abortion providers to administer immediate life-saving treatment to any babies who survive an abortion.
Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon, said people should do some reading.
“I would say please stop and spend a little time educating yourself about what life is all about, and about when babies can feel and when they can respond to external stimulation,” he said.
