VIDEO: Vivek Ramaswamy gives 'staged response' to single mother who interrupted his town hall campaign over abortion in Iowa

Vivek Ramaswamy gives 'staged response' to single mother who interrupted his town hall campaign over abortion in Iowa.

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy praised an abortion-rights demonstrator who interrupted an event in Iowa: “Part of what it means to live in this country is we have free speech. We get to speak our minds openly, even if we don't agree on it.”

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy invited a protester who was being shown the door at a campaign event Monday to return and engage with him on the issue of rape and abortion.

Kayla Crist, of Stanwood, Iowa, first interrupted Ramaswamy's remarks by shouting "protect our women" and "Republicans are raping people," prompting a small group to try to get her to leave.

Some have accused Donald Trump of launching the political phase of his career in pursuit of no grander ambition than enriching himself. Well, say what you will about Trump, but at no point did he envision transforming his political campaigns into a multilevel marketing scheme. That innovation is Vivek Ramaswamy’s alone.

As she started walking toward the exit, Ramaswamy encouraged her to come back and finish her remarks. “I want to give her a chance to speak,” he said.

“If somebody non-consensually rapes me, I’m not having their child,” said Crist, who noted she's a mother, while wiping away tears and walking closer to the stage. “It’s my choice, it’s my body.”

During their exchange, Ramaswamy said that as a mother, Crist was "doing one of the most important things." He also praised her "courage" for speaking out.

“I want to say you’re doing one of the most important things...a mother raising more children in this world. Even if we have our disagreements, I want to say thank you for that. So thank you,” Ramaswamy said.

The Ramaswamy campaign’s new “Kitchen Cabinet Team” is an inventive fundraising scheme that encourages users to contribute to his campaign and solicit donations from others by promising them each up to a 10 percent commission on the contributions they raise.
