Hillary Clinton’s Ironic Tweet: “If Anything Else Killed 33,000 People, Congress Would Act”

Hillary Clinton has never had much of a sense of irony when it comes to abortion. She frequently has made statements talking about the dignity of human life in other political scenarios — never linking it back to abortion, which she promotes without limits.

Such was the case today when Hillary took to Twitter for a series of tweets promoting gun control. Clinton lamented the violence that claims the lives of 33,000 people every year — saying Congress would act because nothing else kills so many people. Nothing except abortion:

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Pro-life people on twitter were quick to point out that Hillary forgot abortion:

National Right to Life estimates that, since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion 43 years ago in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton , more than 58 million unborn children have lost their lives. Each one of those abortions is a tragedy, not just because an innocent child died, but because of the lasting impact the abortion itself had on the mothers of those children.

Since 1968, the National Right to Life Committee has been working to protect unborn children and their mothers from the tragedy of abortion. In the aftermath of the Court’s decisions on January 22, 1973, our network of state affiliates, local chapters, and citizen activists have worked tirelessly to enact laws that protect unborn children and offer life- affirming alternatives to their mothers. And we continue to see evidence that this strategy is working.
