JANE PORTER: Here's a question that should be asked. If you care about child abuse, you should be talking about the fact that Judge Roy Moore stands for protection, not only of our Second Amendment rights so we can protect ourselves against predators, for the rights of babies like your 8-month baby that you're carrying now. [Democratic Senate candidate] Doug Jones says you can take the life of that baby and we should pay for it, even to Planned Parenthood who wants to sell his organs.
POPPY HARLOW (CO-HOST): Let's leave my child out of this. Let's leave my child out of this.
PORTER: Well, it's really the children of Alabama that we’re talking about, and the Alabamians understand that if we’re talking about what’s at stake here, we’re talking about fake allegations, concocted stories, about an innocent man versus real threat of child abuse, not only in the womb, but also in the locker room.
