Debate? More like debacle

Trump first debateA pro-life group wants abortion to be addressed in the next debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Alison Centofante of Live Action says Tuesday night's debate was "a debacle for many reasons," one of which was the fact that it failed to address "the most critical issue facing our nation right now: Our treatment of each other, our treatment of women that are pregnant, and our treatment of vulnerable, pre-born children."

The topic came up after a question about Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, but abortion was never truly discussed in Tuesday night's debate. In the back-and-forth, Chris Wallace promised he would come back to healthcare and Roe v Wade, but that never happened.

"All of us pro-lifers got excited, thinking, Oh, maybe we'll get to talk about abortion here," Centofante tells OneNewsNow. "While they tried briefly to go into that, moderator Chris Wallace redirected and said, 'Look, we're going to talk about healthcare; I'll come back to Roe v Wade,' and that never happened."

As of now, two more debates between President Trump and former Vice President Biden are scheduled, and the pro-lifer believes abortion should "absolutely" be addressed right away, "because that is what is on everyone's mind right now."

"Roe v Wade is up for discussion; abortion is up for discussion," Centofante continues. "The president has made his position very clear on life, and Biden said he is the Democratic Party."

Centofante adds that abortion is the number-one killer of black people in America.

"If you want to talk about race relations, you have to acknowledge that," she concludes.
