February 28, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told an interviewer on Thursday that “I don’t know that it’s really relevant” to consider when life begins when discussing abortion.
The abortion industry leader appeared on Fusion TV’s America with Jorge Ramos before a backdrop featuring pictures of herself and Wendy Davis.
“For you, when does life start? When does a human being become a human being?” Ramos asked.
“This is a question that I think will be debated through the centuries,” she said.
“But for you, what’s that point?” Ramos followed up.
“It is not something that I feel like is really part of this conversation,” she said, stuttering and clearly shaken. “I think every woman needs to make her own decision,” she finally said.
“But why would it be so controversial for you to say when do you think life starts?” Ramos pressed.
“I don’t know that it’s controversial. I don’t know that it’s really relevant to the conversation,” Richards replied.
“I’m the mother of three children,” she finally said. “For me, life began when I delivered them,” adding that her children have “probably” been “the most important thing in my life ever since.”
