Ron DeSantis shot down this mainstream media anchor live on camera

DeSantis is a threat to the Democrat Party. They try every which way to knock him down.

But Ron DeSantis shot down a mainstream media anchor live on camera.

The debate over abortion is heating up as we inch closer to the 2024 election.

Radical leftists refuse to put restrictions on abortion, basically endorsing it up until birth. Republicans obviously sing a different tune that doesn’t involve the murder of innocent babies.

Ron DeSantis, the current Governor of Florida and Republican presidential candidate, has signed a pro-life bill in the Sunshine State, much to the ire of the Left.

During an interview with CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell pressed DeSantis on the pro-life law, citing that it would criminalize women for getting abortions.

“We have no criminal penalties – the criminal penalties are for the physician,” DeSantis responded.

That answer didn’t satisfy O’Donnell, as she snapped back, saying, “Governor, I read the bill.”

She then went on to say that the legislation “includes jail time and fines for ‘any person who willfully performs or actively participates in a termination of pregnancy.”

Governor DeSantis quickly responded, “And that’s for the providers. It is not for the women.”

And finally after being asked again if he’s for criminalizing women who get abortions, DeSantis said, “No, no. Absolutely not. And that will not happen in Florida.”

The exchange continued past jailing women for abortions, as O’Donnell told Ron DeSantis that despite him wanting to introduce more pro-life policies, Florida has had an increase in abortions this past year.

“The issue with Florida is that the southeastern states have very, very strong pro-life laws. Florida is litigating under a 15-week, and so we have become, against our wishes a destination,” DeSantis said.

“Now, we’ve also done the Heartbeat Protection Act, which would go into effect once the courts clear this,” adding that the bill would “stop the whole abortion tourism thing.”

Governor DeSantis continued to make it obvious to O’Donnell that he wouldn’t back down on ending Florida’s status as an abortion tourism state.

“I support pro-life policies. I’ll be a pro-life president.”

Some members of the Republican party believe that distancing oneself from the pro-life stance will lead to a better shot at victory in 2024.

DeSantis seems to have ignored that advice and is doubling down on his pro-life stance.
