CNN contributor Christine Quinn on Monday night participated in a discussion about state-level “heartbeat bills,” where she claimed, “When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”
Quinn, the former Democratic speaker of the New York City Council, appeared on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time alongside fellow CNN contributor and former Republican senator Rick Santorum (Pa.), where they had a fiery debate about abortion.
