    I wondered if this was a trend in thought — not whether it’s a fact or theory of fact.

    When Foster was asked if a “ten-year-old” would “choose to carry a baby,” Foster responded, “I believe it would probably impact her life. And so therefore, it would fall under any exception and would not be an abortion.”

    Sounding shocked by her response, Swalwell interjected, “Wait, it would not be an abortion if a ten-year-old, with her parents, made a decision not to have a baby that was the result of a rape?”

    Foster replied, “If a ten-year-old became pregnant as a result of rape and it was threatening her life, then that’s not an abortion. So, it would not fall under any abortion restriction in our nation.”

    The video recording is present to view and hear within a tweet displayed at the bottom of the article.

      Around the same time as Foster’s testimony, the top lawyer for the National Right to Life Committee, had a decidedly different take.

      In a phone interview with Politico, James Bopp said the girl should have been forced to carry the pregnancy to term under model legislation he wrote last June as NRLC’s general counsel. That legislation is being used by states to adopt abortion restrictions.

      “She would have had the baby, and as many women who have had babies as a result of rape, we would hope that she would understand the reason and ultimately the benefit of having the child,” Bopp is quoted as saying.

      Bopp did not respond to requests for an interview.
