WATCH: GOP Gov. Defends “Super Compassionate” Position Denying Rape & Incest Victims Access To Abortion

The Republican Governor of Oklahoma says he is “super compassionate” about the “super super hard” circumstances that would face a young rape victim being forced to carry her attacker’s fetus to term — but he’s not budging on a hard-line anti-abortion position.

Governor Kevin Stitt appeared on Fox News, where, faced with polling showing that there is not a preponderance of support for his new bill that would ban abortion at 6 weeks of pregnancy, which is often before a pregnancy is even detected, he seemed to recognize the cruelty of the stance, but hold firm to it despite that.

“Well first off, super compassionate about that.I have daughters, cannot even imagine what that would be like, and that hardship. But you have to choose. That is a human being inside the womb, and we’re gonna do everything we can to protect life and love both the mother and the child, and we don’t think that killing one to protect another is the right thing to do either. Our heart is super compassionate about that, we want the churches, we want all the services, the state, the non-profits, to come around with adoption services. That is, that’s super super hard, and we’re gonna do everything we can to help them.”

Everything, apparently, except for allow them to access a basic medical solution without facing legal consequences. According to NPR, the bill that Stitt signed into law this month works like the one SCOTUS upheld in Texas, allowing private citizens to sue medical professionals for providing abortion services. It also allows a private citizen to sue anyone who in any way aids a pregnant person in obtaining an abortion.
