From the April 16 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Not too many things genuinely unite the Democratic Party. One that does, though, is abortion. The party loves it, wants more of it, up until birth, maybe a little bit after, if possible.

...

So, what's the motive behind all of this? The autonomy of women? That's a little abstract, it's not quite it, it's not really what is going on.

Well, God bless former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams for telling the unadorned truth about it.

This is about business, it's about making sure that women can be obedient workers, rather than harried mothers. Hurting business by restricting abortion, she says, is evil -- said it right out loud.

...

DAVID WEBB: Young Black women are not being taught responsibility for their bodies, but they’re actually being taught that if you are irresponsible and sometimes accidents do happen, let’s be fair, young people do this and it happens.

CARLSON: Sure, yeah.

WEBB: But if you’re irresponsible, then it’s easy to get rid of it and abortion is your answer because they never want to solve the actual problem.
