Bellardi on Abortion
On the topic of abortion, Senator Bellardi cited convincing data supporting the viability of the fetus at all stages of development. He introduced a hypothetical example, the unwed and pregnant "Ms. X," at the crossroads of a decision between a convenience abortion and the responsibility of bringing the child to term and offering it for adoption to a loving, childless couple. "The right thing for North California is to do the only right thing for Baby X," Bellardi declared. "Let this defenseless little person live, and stand against anyone who would take from it the precious gift of life."
