He is just saying

Not every issue is black and white. He's a physician and he has SEEN thousands of exceptions where it could be disastrous to have the child. He could be speaking figuratively. It is a philosophical debate to a great extent. Turning it into something more is radical. I mean hes the one who introduced the bill to begin with!
