If you need another example of how selfish and narcissistic Americans can be, look no further than MSNBC host Toure. The liberal talk show host took to the airwaves Friday night to thank God he was able to abort his unborn child and spare himself of the burden. The statements were first reported by TheBlaze.com.
During a broadcast of "The Cycle" Friday, Toure described how he and his former girlfriend chose to abort their unborn child 15 years ago. “I thank God and country that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me," he said.
Toure claimed that the abortion "saved" him, and he wouldn't be the man he is today otherwise. However, his life story paints a much different picture. He was not an unestablished young man facing a life-altering decision. He was a highly successful adult with means in 1997, when the abortion occurred. He was a rich kid from a privileged background. He attended Milton Academy in Massachusetts, an exclusive boarding school for the wealthy. He then attended Emory University and did post graduate work at Columbia. By the time he and his girlfriend decided to have an abortion, he had worked for Rolling Stone and MTV2. He finally married in 2005.
Toure admits that, when his wife decided to have a child, seeing the sonogram during his wife's second trimester made him question his pro-choice stand, and wonder if a fetus is in fact a human life. However, he said ultimately, his decision to abort was the right one, and continues to support abortion to this day.
