Excoriating Republicans on today’s Morning Joe in connection with the Uvalde school shooting, Joe Scarborough broke out one of the most shopworn of liberal cliches: that Republicans believe that “life begins at conception, and ends at childbirth.”

Scarborough went on to list a string of liberal programs or issues that Republicans don’t support. So in Scarborough’s mind, unless you’re a fan of big-government healthcare and more gun control, you’re not pro-life.

In the course of his rant, Scarborough twisted himself into semantic knots to avoid recognizing that before birth, a baby is just that: a baby. Instead, Scarborough referred to the baby in the womb as merely “the being.”

“The being,” Joe? Say it, Scarborough: “the being” is a baby.

Scarborough even seemed to deny that the baby is “alive” before childbirth. He said that Republicans aren’t interested in protecting life after the child is “actually alive.” 

So before birth, a baby is not “actually alive,” Joe?

How low must Scarborough sink, how cravenly must he grovel— abandoning his erstwhile conservatism— to satisfy his MSM masters, and to gain acceptance in his liberal social circle? Pathetic.

On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough referring to a baby before birth as “the being,” and suggesting that before birth, babies are not “actually alive,” was sponsored in part by GlaxoSmithKline, make of Nucala, Facebook, and Servpro.
