Decision Roe v. Wade: CNN host slams Navarro for quoting parents with special needs to justify abortion


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

CNN host and political commentator SE Cupp chastised CNN commentator Ana Navarro after Navarro insisted Roe v. Wade and abortion rights were necessary for families who might want to terminate children with special needs in the womb.

Although she is pro-choice, Cupp criticized Navarro for insinuating that abortion should be there to smother those lives as if they were disposable. In a powerful Twitter thread, Cupp mentioned that she had an “autistic child” and had “never met” a parent who wanted to abort their child with special needs.

Cupp’s comments followed Navarro’s during a CNN segment covering the landmark Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v Wade on Friday.

During the segment, guest panelist and GOP strategist Alice Stewart addressed the ardently pro-choice Navarro, saying, “I don’t understand how you can say on the one hand that you support life, but you agree with a woman’s decision to choose abortion.”

Navarro fired back harshly, stating, “I’m no one to tell you what to do with your life or your womb.” She went on to mention the people with special needs in her family saying, “I have a family with a lot of kids with special needs. I have a brother who is 57 and has the mental and motor skills to ‘a one-year-old. And I know what that means financially, emotionally, physically to a family. And I know that not every family can do that.

She also spoke about her “step-granddaughter who was born with Down syndrome” and her “step-grandson who is very autistic, who is autistic”, adding that it is “difficult” for their families to ‘”get services”.

It was clear that Navarro was saying that many people needed the ability to end their lives while still in the womb.

Early Saturday morning, Cupp publicly disagreed with Navarro’s arguments. Elle a lancé un fil Twitter en déclarant : “Il m’a fallu une minute pour décider si je voulais partager ça. Mais finalement,[j’avaisl’[email protected]l’unedesraisonspourlesquellesvousétaientpro-choixparcequevousconnaissiezdesenfantsayantdesbesoinsspéciauxdansvotrefamilleMoiaussi[I[[email protected]easonsyouwerepro-choicewasbecauseyouknewchildrenwithspecialneedsinyourfamilySodoI”[j’avaisl’[email protected]l’unedesraisonspourlesquellesvousétaientpro-choixparcequevousconnaissiezdesenfantsayantdesbesoinsspéciauxdansvotrefamilleMoiaussi[I[[email protected]easonsyouwerepro-choicewasbecauseyouknewchildrenwithspecialneedsinyourfamilySodoI”

Recounting the CNN analysts’ claims, Cupp continued, “You said you had a step-granddaughter with Down syndrome and a ‘very autistic step-grandson.’ And that “there are mothers and people who are in that society or in that community will tell you that they’ve considered suicide because it’s so hard to get help.”

Cupp torched Navarro’s thought, replying: “I have an autistic child. I have never met a parent of an autistic child or a parent of a special needs child who said he wished abort it.”

“These kids face enough stigma and challenges. Please don’t use our amazing, special, wonderful superhero kids to make political arguments, especially about the benefits of abortion,” Cupp continued.

The CNN host then clarified that she wanted Roe v. Wade was not overruled, but insisted that Navarro’s statements were inappropriate. “I made it clear. I don’t want Roe to be upset. But don’t even talk for a second about our kids with special needs. NOT EVEN FOR A SECOND,” she tweeted emphatically.

Cupp added a final rebuke to Navarro, asking him to “Make the case that you don’t want to have kids. Don’t pretend you don’t want to have the KIND of kids we HAVE AND LOVE.”
