JON SCOTT (GUEST CO-ANCHOR): Well apparently what the [Virginia] Governor [Ralph Northam] thinks a woman ought to be able to choose is to decide right up into the 9th month, if she wants, that she doesn't want this baby anymore and let it be aborted.

KAYLEIGH MCENANY (RNC SPOKESWOMAN): That's exactly right, Jon.
