Pregnant CNN anchor Poppy Harlow to Roy Moore spokeswoman: “Leave my child out of this’

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, pregnant with her second child,  today received an unusually pointed congratulations from a pro-life advocate representing Alabama Senatorial candidate Roy Moore.

“It’s great to be with you, and congratulations on your unborn child,” Jane Porter told Harlow via satellite Tuesday morning. “That’s the reason why I came down as a volunteer to speak for Moore, because he will stand for the rights of babies like yours in the womb where his opponent will support killing them until the moment of birth.”

Harlow didn’t react, simply responding: “Janet, thank you for being with us, and I appreciate the congratulations on our son on the way.”

Later on, Porter tried to revisit the topic of opponent Doug Jones’ pro-choice stance by referring again to Harlow’s baby in her womb and saying “Doug Jones says you can take the life of that baby.”

“Let’s leave my child out of this,” Harlow responded, still calm but with an audible edge in her tone. “Let’s leave my child out of this.”
