MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, the lie is that abortion is necessary for reproductive health, and that's simply not true. And, one of the lies that had been told since 1973 is that this isn't a human being, it's just a clump of cells. Scientifically, that is a lie. Biblically, that's a lie. And so, the whole industry of abortion, and it is an industry, and it's about money and lots of it, and it's also based on the teachings of Margaret Sanger, who was the founder of Planned Parenthood, who was a eugenicist, and who was an avowed racist. And, if people understood the history of Margaret Sanger, her views, I don't know how any liberal, especially those who are always talking about racism, could ever support abortion, because abortion disproportionately affects minorities far more than it does white babies. It is a racist action against people who really ought to crying out and screaming about the disproportionate use of abortion against them.
