VIRGINIA STATE SENATOR STEVE MARTIN UDER FIRE FOR CALLING PREGNANT MOTHERS "HOSTS"

"A conservative Virginia state senator is under fire from Democrats and women’s groups for a sarcastic Facebook post in which he described a pregnant woman as the “host” of the child she bears."

Senator Steve Martin (R-Chesterfield) wrote the following on Face Book in regards to his views on abortion:

“I don’t expect to be in the room [nor] will I do anything to prevent you from obtaining a contraceptive,” Martin wrote. “However, once a child does exist in your womb, I’m not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child’s host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn’t want it.”
