CNN host and political commentator S.E. Cupp rebuked CNN commentator Ana Navarro after Navarro insisted that Roe v. Wade and abortion rights were necessary for families who might want to terminate special needs children in the womb.
Although she’s pro-choice, Cupp slammed Navarro for insinuating that abortion should be there to snuff out these lives as if they’re disposable. In a powerful Twitter thread, Cupp mentioned that she has an “autistic child” and that she’s “never met” a parent who wanted to abort their special needs child.
Cupp’s comments followed those made by Navarro during a CNN segment covering the landmark Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday.
During the segment, guest panelist and GOP strategist Alice Stewart addressed the ardently pro-choice Navarro, saying, “I don’t understand how you can say on one hand you support life, yet you’re fine with a woman’s decision to choose abortion.”
“These children face enough stigmas and challenges. Please don’t use our incredible, special, wonderful, super-hero kids to make political arguments, especially about the benefits of abortion,” Cupp continued.
The CNN host subsequently clarified she wanted Roe v. Wade to not be overturned but insisted that Navarro’s statements were inappropriate. “I have been clear. I don’t want Roe overturned. But don’t even for a second make it about our special needs kids. NOT EVEN ONE SECOND,” she tweeted emphatically.
Cupp added one final rebuke for Navarro, asking her to “Make the argument that you don’t want to have a kid. Don’t make the argument that you don’t want to have a KIND of kid that we HAVE AND LOVE.”
