Tennessee lawmaker grills Republican who claimed to remember being born while arguing for abortion law

BY ARIS FOLLEY - 08/17/19 09:42 PM EDT THE HILL

A Democratic state lawmaker in Tennessee grilled a Republican man who claimed to remember his own birth during a hearing on legislation to ban abortions in the state once a fetus’s heartbeat is detectable.

The footage was captured during a hearing held by the state’s General Assembly earlier this week, in which backers and opponents to the legislation were able to discuss their positions on the bill with state senators.

During the hearing, Hal Rounds, who was identified by a local Fox affiliate as a local Tea Party leader, told lawmakers that he had a “conceptual memory” of being born.

“I have a conceptual memory of being born. That sounds ridiculous. I didn’t come out of the womb and say, ‘Oh my God, there’s a fluorescent light and it was made by Slovenia.’ No,” he continued.

1. "Conceptual memory"? That's the kind of thing you talk about in woo circles or...

philosophical debates-- not a thing you make law on.

Senator Robinson had look about her that said "I really don't want to be here dealing with this bullshit."
