Carson Said That “We Need To Do Is Re-Educate The Women” To Stop Having Abortions.
According to Raw Story, “‘There is no war on them, the war is on their babies,’ Carson insisted. ‘Babies that cannot defend themselves. Over the past few decades, we have destroyed 55 million of them. And we have the nerve to call other societies of the past heathen.’ ‘What we need to do is re-educate the women to understand that they are the defenders of these babies.’” [Raw Story, 10/11/13]
Carson Compared Women Looking At Ultrasounds Of Fetuses To Farmers Looking At Ears Of Corn.
According to an opinion by Ben Carson in the Washington Times, “Some people oppose having pregnant women view ultrasonic pictures of their developing babies because they do not want an emotional bond to develop. Careful unbiased contemplation however, might yield the conclusion that such bonding is essential to the survival of mankind. Successful farmers nourish and protect their growing crops and if conditions threaten their crops, they do what is necessary to protect them. Rather than attack the analogy, think about how much more precious a human life is than a stalk of corn.” [Ben Carson – Washington Times, 1/21/14]
Carson Suggested That Women Needed To Be Informed Of The True Consequences Of Out-Of-Wedlock Birth And Needed To “Value Themselves Appropriately.”
According to an opinion by Ben Carson in the Washington Times, “It is equally, if not more important, to reach these young women before they become pregnant. Forget about those politically correct people who say all lifestyles are equal and inform those young women about the true consequences of out-of-wedlock birth for those who are not financially independent. We need to make sure they understand that they can provide a much better life for themselves and their children when they plan ahead and value themselves appropriately.” [Ben Carson – Washington Times, 1/21/14]
Carson Said That Women “Get All Riled Up” About Abortion.
According to Raw Story, “‘You know, there are those of us in this society who have told women that there’s a war on them because that cute little baby inside of them, they may want to get rid of it and there are people that are keeping you from doing that,” Carson continued. “And women say, ‘No, no, they’re not doing that to me! No!’ And they get all riled up.’” [Raw Story, 10/11/13]
