Skip to comments.Senate Candidate Murphy: Life Begins at Birth (D-CT)
Posted on 10/20/2012 8:30:00 PM PDT by markomalley
In May of this year, a Gallup poll found that 50% of those polled identified themselves as pro-life, while only 41% identified as pro-choice. In 2008, a Zogby poll found that 59% of those polled believed life begins at conception, while only 17.2% said that life begins at birth.
Though candidate McMahon has presented herself as a moderate Republican who is pro-choice, Murphy has repeatedly attacked her using the war on women theme popular among national Democrats.
While McMahon has been clear about her pro-choice status, she supports parental consent laws for minors seeking abortion and is against the HHS mandate, which forces most employers to provide free contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients to employees through health insurance plans. Murphy attacked McMahon using the war on women meme that women cannot purchase contraception unless the government makes laws forcing employers to provide it.
"You can't say you're pro-choice while then supporting things like the Blunt amendment, which would take away from women the ability to purchase contraception,'' Murphy said during the debate to McMahon. "You can't say you're pro-choice but then be open to voting for Supreme Court justices that would overturn the very law that provides access for women's full preventative healthcare benefits.

He said what Rats believe. Obama is in favor of ‘partial birth’ abortion. Look at a video of that procedure and you’ll know what PURE EVIL is.
Murdering a child in the womb, birth canal, or recently born?
Is there really a difference?
At least this Rat was honest about the level of absurdity and evil in the pro-death position.
sounds like the usual northeastern blue liberal babble that that “is why they call it a birthday” and otherwise refer to a baby “as a lump of cells” until then. Highly offensive.
And I’ll bet for Murphy that being half-born doesn’t count. McMahon should win this one.
and until that head leaves the womb, it is OK to stick a suction tube into its neck and suck out its brain
HAPPY BIRTHDAY lump of cells! Welcome to liberals’ USA
May God have mercy on his soul, I will not. Life begins at conception.
I’d go a little different based on this-
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Life begins when one’s name is written in the Book of Life, IMHO.
See - liberals can ignore science too when they want to....
RE: He said what Rats believe.
Actually Obama PUBLICLY said that answer to the question of when life begins is “Above My Paygrade”.
Fifteen second through the clip ( to about 23 seconds ).
Amen my brother, amen.
...and libs yap about conservatives being hostile and ignorant when it comes to scientific knowledge...this guy is a virtual flat-earther.....
The relativist is morally uncommitted, until someone steals his car.
I doubt this gentleman would be able to stand firmly on this position if it was his granddaughter in the 39th week and 5 cm from open air.
Here is a twelve to thirteen week old... what? If this isn't a human being what is? The real war on women is when abortionists are allowed to take the lives of these innocent young girls in the womb!
” did you not know that I have numbered the hairs on your head before you were conceived”.
Abortionists will all have a very difficult eternity.
Does anyone believe CT believes what the rest of the country believes?
Life begins before conception, clearly.
But that fries liberal/agnostic/atheist heads; they can’t deal with it.
Oh well, they had their opportunity.
I hope this piece of trash gets the pedigree, stone cold stunner, and people's elbow from Linda McMahon.
This is a mass of cells.
This is a beautiful miracle.
The difference is a 75 cent baby shower invitation.
This Murphy individual didn’t the memo yet. The correct libnut answer to when life begins is, “when the mother decides she wants the baby”. Otherwise you can’t justify infanticide, and that’s the next frontier in the culture of death.
