Ben Carson Compares Women Who Have Abortions to Slave Owners

Over the weekend Dr. Ben Carson, Republican presidential candidate and neurosurgeon, not only compared abortion to slavery but he also said he would “love” to see Roe V. Wade overturned.

Carson claims that during slavery, slave owners believed that hey had every right to do whatever they wanted to their slaves. In comparing abortion to slavery, Carson indirectly compares the women who have abortions to slave owners. For someone who said he would never be an advocate for illegal abortion in 1992, Carson suddenly has a staunch stance on the subject. He believes that abortion should be illegal even in cases of incest or rape. Carson says the only exception would be if the pregnancy endangered the health of the mother but that, he says, would have to be “an extraordinarily rare situation.”

Carson is no stranger to controversy. He believes being gay is a choice, that Obamacare was the worst thing that has happened in the US since slavery,that a Muslim should not be elected president, and that the victims at a Community College in Oregon should have attacked the shooter instead of just standing there.

Carson and Trump are the two top contenders for the Republican nomination. We don’t want either of these controversial pot-stirring men leading the country, do you?
