"It’s the hottest issue that hasn’t been exploited… I don’t know HOW this President can’t bring it up tonight. There’s a GRAND CANYON of difference between Obama, who is very pro-choice, and the Republican ticket, which would give 14th Amendment rights - whatever that means - life, liberty, and property rights, to an egg that’s just been fertilized, after sex if you will. To have that notion that that would be a person, under that personhood thing Ryan’s pushing, and under the 14th Amendment… This is EXTREMISM. It’s almost like Shria [Law]. You’re saying to the country we’re going to operate under religious theory… we’re going to run our country this way to the point of making a woman’s decision on abortion, her reproductive rights, criminal, perhaps murderous."
