Abortion was a hot topic of discussion at the first Republican Presidential Primary debate.
This led to a heated argument between the candidates.
And an abortion survivor humiliated a top establishment RINO with this post-debate truth bomb about Ron DeSantis.
Abortion is one of the most divisive political issues in America.
Of course, virtually all Democrats support abortion-on-demand until birth with no restrictions.
But not all Republicans agree on the issue.
Conservative Republicans like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis believe that life begins at conception and must be protected by the government.
DeSantis signed a bill into law last year that prohibits abortions after six weeks in the Sunshine State.
But RINO Republicans, such as Nikki Haley, claim to be Pro-Life but believe abortion should be legal during the first term of pregnancy.
DeSantis defended his Pro-Life views during the debate, promising the crowd that he will always “stand on the side of life.”
The Florida Governor also told a story about a lady in Florida who survived an abortion.
“I know a lady in Florida named Penny,” he said. “She survived multiple abortion attempts.”
“She was left discarded in a pan,” he continued, before adding that “fortunately, her grandmother saved her and brought her to a different hospital.”
But establishment RINOs lashed out at DeSantis on social media and accused him of lying about the lady named Penny.
Steve Schmidt, a co-founder of the Never-Trump Lincoln Project, wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, that “the story of Penny found in the pan by DeSantis is ludicrous, and obviously untrue.”
“It should be looked into by the media,” he concluded.

But Schmidt soon felt humiliated when Miriam “Penny” Hopper reached out to Fox News Digital to let Americans know that she does exist and DeSantis was telling the truth.
“My answer to that would be the fact that I did exist,” Hopper told Fox News. “I existed at 23 weeks,” she continued, before adding that “there are thousands of abortion survivors around the world who have stories to tell, who have miraculous stories to tell.”
Hopper told Fox that she did not watch the GOP debate.
However, she admitted that it was “exciting,” “shocking,” and “humbling” to find out that DeSantis talked about her on a national stage.
“You know that you’ve known your story all your life, but you’re not the only one out there to tell a story, that’s got stories to tell,” she said. “I was very humbled by it.”
RINOs like Steve Schmidt should learn to be careful what they ask for.
