Carson says babies and infants aren't going to flat out tell their parents they don't want their dirty diapers changed, however, she says they are able to send social cues and facial expressions.
Carson has faced a mountain of backlash on social media and some have criticized her ideology as "left wing lunacy."
She defended her comments by saying, "The idea around consent is about empowering children with their rights and protecting them from sexual abuse."
