Even by the standards of Fox News, which routinely takes a drubbing from liberal critics over sensationalist rhetoric, a comment by Fox News anchor Alisyn Camerota Monday seemed to toe the most outrageous line.

Camerota asked a guest — perhaps playing devil’s advocate — if there was benefit to a Democratic senator’s healthcare amendment which blocked federal funding for abortions.

“If there is no federal money used to subsidize abortions for low-income women, doesn’t that mean there will be more low-income babies, and do any of these amendments talk about the health care for them?” Camerota asked.
