A selling point for liberals is how much and how often they advocate for the death of the unborn.
Planned Parenthood recently endorsed Hillary Clinton, who opposes a law that bars taxpayer funding for abortions through Medicaid. She said at a campaign rally that “[a]ny right that requires you to take extraordinary measures to access it is no right at all…and not as long as we have laws on the book like the Hyde amendment, making it harder for low income women to exercise their full rights.”
Live Action News reported that some Planned Parenthood supporters didn’t like this endorsement and said they’d stop contributing to the abortion mill.
There was a time when abortion advocates claimed they wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare,” a mantra designed to soften the reality of what’s really going on. The Washington Times reported that at least one of them has dispensed with the “rare” part for her platform. Like other abortion advocates, Hillary Clinton opposes all restrictions to killing babies, “including during the ninth month of pregnancy.” An excerpt (emphasis added):
In 2000, when she first ran for the U.S. Senate, Mrs. Clinton seemed to be part of that majority, telling The Associated Press that she “would support legislation that would ban late-term abortions, including so-called partial-birth abortion, as long as it protects the life and health of the woman and it does not undermine Roe v. Wade.”
By this year’s presidential campaign, though, her stance had hardened.
“I think that the kind of late-term abortions that take place are because of medical necessity, and therefore I would hate to see the government interfering with that decision,” she said in a September interview with John Dickerson of CBS. “This gets back to whether you respect a woman’s right to choose or not, and I think that’s what this whole argument is about.”
Clinton even compared pro-lifers to Islamic terrorists. Both groups have “extreme” views about women. Pro-lifers certainly do have “extreme” views about unborn children: saving their lives. To say that Clinton and the rest of the Democratic establishment are in bed with the abortion industry is an understatement.
Is Clinton betting that her hard stance plays into an imaginary “war on women” and wins her the White House?
