Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are two peas in a pod when it comes to abortion. They both believe unborn children should have no Constitutional rights, inducing the right to life.

Over the weekend, pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton couldn’t have made her radical abortion views more clear. Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.

“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Clinton said, adding that “the woman’s right to make decisions” is the be all and end all when it comes to abortion.

Now, Bernie Sanders agrees, as the Daily Caller reports:

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Sanders was asked if there should be “any restrictions” on abortion, and Sanders replied that the decision “ultimately has got to be made by the woman.”

Stephanopoulos asked Sanders about his position on abortion and whether or not he agreed with Clinton that unborn children do not have constitutional rights, to which the Vermont senator replied, “All I know is that I will fight as strong as I can to defend a woman’s right to choose. I believe that it is an outrage that Republicans who tell us how much they hate the government now want to tell every American — every American woman what she can and cannot do with her body. And I do agree with the Secretary. I don’t believe there’s any constitutional protection for the unborn.”

When asked if he was “for any restrictions on abortion,” Sanders said, “I think that decision ultimately has got to be made by the woman. I have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record throughout my career. That decision must be made by the woman, must be made by her family and her physician, not by the federal government, not by the state government.”
