Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton does not seem to care that most Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortions.

Clinton recently made a campaign promise that would force her radical abortion policies on the American people by repealing the Hyde Amendment and using tax dollars to pay for women’s abortions. Clinton previously said she also would not restrict abortion for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.

On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, while tens of thousands of pro-lifers braved a snow storm to march for life in Washington, D.C., Clinton spent the day campaigning for abortion. She joined abortion advocates on Jan. 22 in New Hampshire to celebrate the infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision that led to 58 million abortions.

During the event, Clinton said she wants to give poor women access to taxpayer-funded abortions, because it would help them economically.

“It should not be that some who are fortunate economically can access their rights [to abortion] while all others are left behind,” Clinton said. “Human rights, civil rights, women’s rights matter. And there is no more important issue than reproductive rights.”

Clinton also tweeted about her radical abortion policies:

Political analyst Chad Pecknold told The Washington Times that the abortion industry has “bought and paid for” Clinton’s support.

Pecknold, a theologian at Catholic University of America, said: “Hillary Clinton has always been a part of the establishment and one of the most powerful players in politics — of which she’s been 100 percent bought and paid for — is Planned Parenthood. She can’t do anything but support the vision of the group.”

Even pro-abortion Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders recently labeled Planned Parenthood an “establishment” group after it announced its endorsement of Clinton.

Planned Parenthood, which already reaps in $550 million in taxpayer dollars each year, stands to benefit even more if Clinton becomes president and allows full-fledged taxpayer funding of abortion. Abortions and revenue almost certainly would increase for Planned Parenthood if Clinton becomes president. The group performs almost 330,000 abortions every year – more than any other group in the U.S.

Polling consistently shows that a majority of Americans, even those who identify as pro-choice, disagree with Clinton’s proposed abortion policies. A recent poll found that 68 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, LifeNews reported.

Clinton’s extreme position on abortion is clear. At a campaign event in August, she compared pro-lifers to terrorists. Then, during a September interview on CBS, Clinton revealed that she wouldn’t support a federal limit on abortion “at any state of pregnancy” in the name of a “woman’s right to choose.”

This position, too, stands in stark opposition to most Americans’ positions on abortion, according to polling. A Marist survey found that 8 in 10 Americans, including 82 percent of women, would restrict abortion to the first three months of pregnancy, at most. Even 66 percent of Americans who identify as pro-choice say they want more abortion restrictions.
