(CNSNews.com) - In his closing remarks at Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, noted that he was the only candidate who had taken out half a human brain.

Then he noted that if you went to Washington, D.C. you might think that someone had beaten him to it.

Carson also said he was “the only one to operate on babies while they were still in the mother’s womb."

Here is the text of Dr. Carson’s closing remarks:

Dr. Ben Carson: Well, I haven't said anything about me being the only one to do anything, so let me try that. I'm the only one to separate Siamese twins. The only one to operate on babies while they were still in mother's womb. The only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think, if you go to Washington, that someone had beat me to it.

But I'm very hopeful that I'm not the only one who's willing to pick up the baton of freedom, because freedom is not free, and we must fight for it every day. Every one of us must fight for it, because we're fighting for our children and the next generation.
