Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton almost sounds pro-life – when she’s talking about gun control, that is.
Clinton is not pro-life, however; she is radically pro-abortion. Recently, she wrote a strong column for the New York Daily News about protecting children from gun violence. Her statements were ironic, given that she openly advocates for another type of violence against children: abortion.
An average of 90 people a day are killed by gun violence in the U.S. Thousands of parents every year have to bury their children. Imagine it. You pour your heart and soul into raising your kids, teaching them about the world, listening to every worry, cheering every victory, and encouraging them to dream big dreams and doing everything you can to help them achieve them. And then one day, a distant siren, an unexpected phone call, or a breaking news alert on TV could mean that someone with a gun has taken all those dreams away.
It’s time — long past time — that we do what it takes to put a stop to it.
Not just in some neighborhoods or some cities — but in every corner of this country where guns continue to destroy innocent lives.
… I have no illusions about how hard the politics around this issue are, but I refuse to sit on the sidelines while more children die.
…Recently, I joined some of these mothers to visit a memorial in Chicago to children killed by gun violence. It’s made up of more than 500 stones, each representing a dead child. One of those children was only a year old.
Standing before those stones, I pledged once more that as a mother, a grandmother and hopefully one day as President, I will work to save and protect the lives of our nation’s children.
The deaths of the 90 people killed every day in the U.S. by gun violence are tragic, but so are the lives of the more than 3,000 unborn babies who are aborted. Yet, Clinton openly advocates for those 3,000-plus violent deaths at American abortion clinics every day.
Clinton has radical stance on abortion that is out of touch with most Americans. She promised to overturn the Hyde Amendment, forcing Americans to fund abortions with tax dollars; and she openly opposes restrictions on late-term abortions when babies are viable outside the womb. Most Americans don’t stand with Clinton on these issues.
But, in typical political pandering fashion, her statements about gun control draw attention away from her radical pro-abortion position and make her appear to be the compassionate, caring candidate that she wants people to think she is.
