During tonight’s presidential debate, pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton made it clear that she wants a Supreme Court nominee who will support unlimited abortion.
Hillary Clinton reiterated her promise to appoint judges to the Supreme Court who will support Roe vs. Wade — the terrible Supreme Court decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy for any reason. Roe has resulted in 59 million abortions on unborn babies over the last four and a half decades.
Clinton wants that to continue.
“Donald has put forth names of people he would consider, people who would reverse Roe v. Wade ,” Hillary complained.
” I want a Supreme Court that will stick with Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose,” she added.
Back in March, Clinton said she will not name any nominees to the Supreme Court who do not support abortion on demand.
Asked about President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia, Clinton said she would not second guess Obama’s nomination and added that any nomination she would make if elected would be a hardcore abortion activists who supports Roe.
Clinton said she wouldn’t second-guess Mr. Obama’s decision to pick Judge Garland to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, but added that if she were in the Oval Office she would search for nominees in the mold of Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Mrs. Clinton said Justice Sotomayor’s Hispanic heritage and underprivileged upbringing brought needed perspectives to the high court.
Clinton also said she would impose litmus tests on abortion and campaign finance. Her nominees, she said, would have to prove that they would uphold the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a national right to abortion and would have to show that they would overturn the Citizens United decision that established free speech campaign rights for interest groups.
“I would not appoint someone who didn’t think Roe v. Wade is settled law,” Mrs. Clinton said while campaigning in Madison, Wisconsin, where the next primary is slated for next week.
