TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, this is the modern Democratic orthodoxy.

If you love women, you will encourage them to kill their own offspring.

If you acknowledge that children are sacred, that being a parent is honorable and necessary, and maybe even more meaningful than a trip to Ibiza this summer, then you, sir, are an oppressor. You hate women.

In case you haven't noticed, it's almost a perfect inversion of common sense and of nature itself. It's grotesque.
