Oct. 20, 1999—Here's one of the greatest pro-life apologists ever in the U.S. Senate debating the most intellectually-dishonest and, as this video shows, inept pro-abortion/pro-modified-infanticide legislators ever on a subject (partial-birth abortion) that is simply indefensible. Party of Life 1, Party of Death 0.

Read George Will's 07/31/2010 article that cites this video, "Barbara Boxer in Context":

Boxer: I am absolutely not suggesting that. You asked me a question, in essence, when the baby is born.

Santorum: I am asking you again. Can you answer that?

Boxer: I will answer the question when the baby is born. The baby is born when the baby is outside the mother's body. The baby is born.

Santorum: I am not going to put words in your mouth - -

Boxer: I hope not.

Santorum: But, again, what you are suggesting is if the baby's toe is inside the mother, you can, in fact, kill that baby.

[Hey Rick, you need to spell it out for her. Next time say something like: "You just said that the baby is born when it is outside the mother's body. I AGREE with you about that and if we were here debating the "Fully-Born Abortion Bill", then the debate would be over. Additionally, we are not debating the "Unborn Abortion Bill", if so, we might have to discuss what a fetus is at it's early stages of development and we would have a disagreement about that. But here, we are discussing a bill that puts at issue neither a fully unborn baby nor an unborn fetus, but something intermediary. Appealing to common sense, I am asking you to join me in unequivocally defending the rights of a baby that has partially emerged from it's mother's body, whether it is a hand, or foot or head.]

Boxer: Absolutely not.

Santorum: OK. So if the baby's toe is in, you can't kill the baby. How about if the baby's foot is in?

Boxer: You are the one who is making these statements.

Santorum: We are trying to draw a line here.

Boxer: I am not answering these questions! I am not answering these questions.
