‘There is no one who knows more about what’s in the best interest of a child than the mother’

Democrat Caucus Chair Won’t Say if Unborn Baby at 20 Weeks is ‘Human Being’ (CNS News)

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, would not directly answer when asked the yes-no question of whether an unborn child 20 weeks into pregnancy is a human being.

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, Jan. 27, CNSNews.com asked the congressman: “Do you think an unborn child 20 weeks into pregnancy is a human being?”

Becerra said: “You know my wife’s an OB/GYN, and I know having watched as we raise our three daughters, there is no one who knows more about what’s in the best interest of a child than the mother--and I say that as a very proud father and I have total faith when my wife makes a decision. She does it in the best interest of her family and her kids and obviously me as well.”
