Democratic Party national chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a long history of extremist quotes on abortion and a comment she made last night at the Democratic presidential candidate debate was no exception. In the spin room, a reporter with the Media Research Center caught up with Wasserman Schultz and asked her if her children were human beings before birth.

Here’s her reply:

MRC TV: You have three children, correct?

Wasserman Schultz: I do.

MRC TV: How old are they?

Wasserman Schultz: I have twin 16-year-olds and a 12-year-old.

MRC TV: In your opinion, were they human beings before they were born?

Wasserman Schultz: You know, I believe that every woman has the right to make their own reproductive choices.

MRC TV: But what did you believe about your children?

Wasserman Schultz: That I had the right to make my own reproductive choices, which I was glad to have and which I was proud to have.

MRC TV: So were they human beings? Just yes or no.

Wasserman Schultz: They’re human beings today, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to make my own reproductive choices, as – a right that every woman has and should maintain.
