LifeSiteNews 11 August 2015Presidential candidate Ben Carson has said the argument that abortion is necessary to save the life of the mother is “spurious.”Carson was asked about a statement from Hillary Clinton, which condemned 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls for saying “outrageous” things about women’s health.CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell pressed the retired physician repeatedly on the issue.“I spent my entire career as a pediatric neurosurgeon, frequently staying up all night, fighting, struggling to save the lives of little babies, even operating on babies inside the womb. So, I don’t think it should be hard for anybody to understand that I am totally opposed to killing babies,” he said.O’Donnell followed up by asking, “I looked at your website and it wasn’t clear on your website. You are opposed to all abortions, even in the case of life of [the] mother?”“When it comes to the case of the life of the mother, you have to look at the individual situation,” Carson replied. “Recognize that that is largely a spurious argument, because we have advanced so much in medicine these days that that situation rarely occurs.”https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ben-carson-abortion-to-save-the-mothers-life-is-spurious-video1
Palm Beach County School Superintendent Donald Fennoy spoke out Wednesday afternoon about the former Spanish River High School principal who made controversial comments about the Holocaust.Fennoy recommends that William Latson’s district contract not be renewed. That statement came after an email Latson sent to a parent surfaced, in which he reportedly wrote, “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.”According to the district, Latson made a “grave error in judgement.”Latson says that his words were misconstrued.Upon being removed from his position on Tuesday, he wrote to school staff members, “I have been reassigned to the district office due to a statement that was not accurately relayed to the newspaper by one of our parents.” In addition, “It is unfortunate that someone can make a false statement and do so anonymously and it holds credibility, but that is the world we live in.”Click here to watch Fennoy’s full video statement.Will Former Boca Principal Lose his Job Today Over Holocaust Controversy?
