At 15 weeks of pregnancy, babies in the womb “suck their thumbs and yawn. Their hearts pump about 26 quarts of blood every day. They even show a preference for their right or left hand.” according to a Life News report.
The report notes:
When asked if a “fetus at 15 weeks is a human being,” [Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA)] responded in a convoluted way.
“Of course a human being is life, and you do not have life,” she said. “And so, I think it’s up to others other than me, but I basically believe that women should have the right within certain legal restraints to prevent those situations, which can be prevented – which can be very difficult.”
Feinstein also said she has been a steadfast supporter of Roe v. Wade for decades, and she supports a “woman’s right to choose.”
Later, her communications director, Tom Mentzer, disputed the Fox News report, saying it is merely their “interpretation” that she does not believe an unborn baby at 15 weeks is a human being. However, he did not actually confirm or deny that that is what Feinstein believes.
