In one of the more remarkable instances of politically correct insanity coming out of the left these days, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro said he believes biological males should have the same right to an abortion as women.
Castro made the comments during Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate when NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt asked if the government should provide coverage for abortion.
“Secretary Castro, this one is for you,” Holt began. “All of you on stage support a woman’s right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health care option. Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary?”
The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Barack Obama responded that hell, everyone should have the right to government-funded abortion.
“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice,” Castro bragged. “And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman – or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion.”
Castro was so proud of his scientifically illiterate statement that he posted the clip to his own Twitter feed.
The right to an abortion is under assault. Just because a woman or someone in the trans community is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to an abortion. I would appoint federal judges who would respect Roe v. Wade. #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/UgkB7IJbhb

We know he’s pandering, we’re just not sure who he’s pandering to. People who have never taken a biology course?
Because he certainly isn’t pandering to the ‘I was male at birth but now have switched to female and wish to get pregnant’ circuit, because there are zero cases of that ever actually happening.
So that’s not exactly a rich demographic to mine for votes.
In a sane country, Julian Castro’s political career would be over after making the insane claim that biological men can get pregnant. But this is not a sane country, so the remark earned wild applause and his poll numbers will surge today.

Advocates Open Borders
Castro, during the debate, also strongly advocated for open borders and general lawlessness, pushing to get rid of Section 1325 of the Immigration and Nationality Act which would decriminalize illegal border crossings.
“The reason that they are separating these little children from their families is that they’re using Section 1325, that act, which criminalizes coming across the border … some of us on this stage have called to end that …” he argued.
Advocating for lawlessness is expected from a man who earlier this month told a woman who had her identity stolen by an illegal immigrant that “crime happens.”
