During a debate with Lila Rose on CNN’s Crossfire last night, NARAL president Ilyse Hogue made an outlandish claim. She thinks having an abortion is what “religious liberty” is all about.

ilysehogueAt a time when pro-life advocates are losing their religious liberties by having the Obama administration force them ti pay for drugs that may cause abortions, defending abortion — the destruction of a baby before birth — as religious liberty and freedom is sacrilegious.

The transcript and video follow:

“Isn’t it great that we live in a country where Lila Rose could decide that she would choose to carry her rapist pregnancy to term, but her version of morality doesn’t actually dictate what I can choose to do in that moment. And that’s what religious liberty is about. It’s about you getting to chose what would be right for you in that circumstance but I don’t get to tell you what to do and you don’t get to tell me what to do.”
