During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on a radical abortion bill this week. Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz got into a heated back and forth with Reps. Karen Bass (D-CA) and Deborah Ross (D-NC); Gaetz wanted answers on the phrase “unborn child.”
“If I want to ask questions to Ms. Ross, she could choose whether or not to yield to give the answers, but you covering for her when she doesn’t know the words she uses in the judiciary committee and answer the questions on something is important as life or death when I control the time is outrageous,” Gaetz said.
“Are you done?” Bass asked. “Are you done with your theater?”
“I’m done when my turn done,” Gaetz replied. “And when I’m done… you can yield for those questions, but, but it’s crazy that in this committee, when I’m trying to get honest answers to questions about the effect of the bill, one that paves the way to abortions, that you all want to sit up there and squawk at me rather than allow me to ask questions.”
‘She used the phrase ‘unborn child. I would like to know what that means to her, because what it means to us is that is a life,” Gaetz continued.
“We actually think that unborn life is a child and there’s a liberty interest there that is worthy of our defense and our protection,” Gaetz added.
“We’ll vote when we’re damn well ready,” Gaetz shouted, blasting Dems for not respecting the minority party.
Watch the clip above. Gaetz shared the exchange on Twitter:
“.@HouseJudiciary Democrats are in such a rush to kill unborn babies that they’re unwilling to answer our questions. The good news is, with the Supreme Court we currently have, this is now a PRO-LIFE country! We’ve got all the time in the world for that.”
