MSNBC Hypes Pro-Abortion Republicans Trashing ‘Atrocious’ Pro-Life Laws

News & Politics

NBC and MSNBC really love pro-abortion Republicans and the latest attempt to push the GOP left on the issue came on Wednesday edition of Jose Diaz-Balart Reports as reporter Morgan Radford got super excited that of the 1.3 million signatures for a 2024 Florida ballot measure that would permit abortion up until 24 weeks, a whopping 11.5 percent of them have been Republicans. Radford would also interview some of these signees and they would naturally tell MSNBC’s liberal viewers what they wanted to hear.

In her report, Radford declared, “Anna Hochkammer leads the Florida’s Women’s Freedom Coalition, one of several groups behind the movement, from right here in her South Florida home. A coalition that she says doesn’t just include Democrats. By her organization’s count, of the 1.3 million signatures they have collected thus far, more than 150,000 have come from registered Republicans.”

Hochkammer herself is a Democrat, but having one out of every eight signees be a Republican is not all that impressive. Still, Hochkammer claimed, “I had one woman say to me, ‘You know, I was in a room full of Republican women when we heard that Roe v. Wade was overturned and it was like being at a funeral.’ They’d all been through this battle before. They thought it was settled.” 

Radford then introduced Jaymie Carter and Carol Whitmore and proving this story started with the conclusion of hyping pro-abortion Republicans and then working backwards, Radford noted that the latter “was introduced to us by the Florida’s Women’s Freedom Coalition.”

Whitmore then showed she felt at home on the liberal network, “To say women can’t make this very important decision in their life is atrocious. So you will be surprised and you will hear there are a lot of Republicans that support what Jaymie and I do.”

Carter concurred, “There’s a lot of people that you wouldn’t think would be the pro-choice advocates, but they are and I think it’s really just having control of our own bodies. That’s — and the government overreach right is huge right now.”

After Whitmore claimed that being pro-life is not a winning issue for the national party, Radford moved on to another duo, “And it’s not just women. Former state representative Carlos Lacasa and Ed Williamson, a prominent local businessman, are donating time and money to the petition cause, both are registered Republicans.”

“Why do you think it is important you speak out as men on this issue?” she asked.

Lacasa claimed that, “I expect my privacy rights to be respected by the government. I don’t want to be forced to be vaccinated and for that reason I think a woman’s right to choose is fundamental and should be defended.”

For his part, Williamson added, “Carlos is right and. of course, the right to abortion, I think, is one of those things that the government has got no business being into.”

Still waiting on that puff piece on pro-life Democrats. 

Here is a transcript for the December 13 show:

MSNBC Jose Diaz-Balart Reports

12/13/2023

11:39 AM ET

MORGAN RADFORD: Anna Hochkammer leads the Florida’s Women’s Freedom Coalition, one of several groups behind the movement, from right here in her South Florida home. A coalition that she says doesn’t just include Democrats. By her organization’s count, of the 1.3 million signatures they have collected thus far, more than 150,000 have come from registered Republicans. 

ANNA HOCHKAMMER: I had one woman say to me, “You know, I was in a room full of Republican women when we heard that Roe v. Wade was overturned and it was like being at a funeral.” They’d all been through this battle before. They thought it was settled. 

RADFORD: Are you both registered Republicans? 

JAYMIE CARTER: Yes

CAROL WHITMORE: Yes

RADFORD: And there are voices behind those numbers. Carol Whitmore was introduced to us by the Florida’s Women’s Freedom Coalition.

CAROL WHITMORE: To say women can’t make this very important decision in their life is atrocious. So you will be surprised and you will hear there are a lot of Republicans that support what Jaymie and I do. 

RADFORD: Her friend Jaymie Carter is unaffiliated with the organization, but signed a petition in favor of the amendment. 

CARTER: There’s a lot of people that you wouldn’t think would be the pro-choice advocates, but they are and I think it’s really just having control of our own bodies. That’s — and the government overreach right is huge right now. 

RADFORD: What do you all think happens if the Republican Party as a whole doesn’t see this issue the way you do? 

WHITMORE: I think the national level they’re realizing they’re not going to win this battle. 

RADFORD: And it’s not just women. Former state representative Carlos Lacasa and Ed Williamson, a prominent local businessman, are donating time and money to the petition cause, both are registered Republicans. Why do you think it is important you speak out as men on this issue? 

CARLOS LACASA: I expect my privacy rights to be respected by the government. I don’t want to be forced to be vaccinated and for that reason I think a woman’s right to choose is fundamental and should be defended. 

ED WILLIAMSON: Carlos is right and. of course, the right to abortion, I think, is one of those things that the government has got no business being into.
