Ever since Hillary Clinton basically clinched the Democratic nomination for president, pro-abortion groups have been blowing their party horns in celebration.
Clinton, who does not think children should have any rights before birth, is a favorite of abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.). Earlier this year, Clinton promised to expand their profits by forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions if she is elected.
“Women have always known that this day would come — but that doesn’t make Hillary Clinton’s victory any less momentous, or inspiring,” Terry O’Neill, president of N.O.W., said in a statement.
O’Neill implied that a vote against Clinton is a vote that supports sexism and bigotry in America. She claimed that Clinton’s nomination fulfills the dreams of early feminists during the famous Seneca Falls, New York convention in 1848. (The early feminists were pro-life and almost certainly would have opposed Clinton’s radical pro-abortion policies.)
“Hillary Clinton has won the nomination despite the double standard routinely applied to strong, talented women,” O’Neill said. “She has shown us that not only can we break through the glass ceiling; we can also shatter the prism that distorts the view of women in politics.”
However, pro-life U.S. Congresswoman Mia Love, R-Utah, echoed the thoughts of millions of Americans when she said Clinton’s policies should be the deciding factor for voters, not her sex.
Love posted this message on Facebook today:
A female President would certainly be historic, but Hillary Clinton would be a historic disaster. Shattering the glass ceiling with her shrill rhetoric along with the blunt force of her divisive and dishonest political machine is more of a breakdown than a breakthrough. Her promises to continue the same failed policies of President Obama, which have sadly hurt women and minorities the most, should not be viewed as enlightened vision or real leadership. We have seen the pattern of dishonesty, deception and division in her failed leadership in Benghazi, her business dealings and her email scandal (all fact). More than a breakthrough our country needs a break-up with the failed policies and failed leadership Hillary Clinton is offering.
The Associated Press reported on Monday that Clinton reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Democratic U.S. presidential nomination. Her pro-abortion opponent, Bernie Sanders, has vowed to keep fighting, according to the AP.
Clinton’s pro-abortion views are longstanding. In March 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award at an event in Houston. During the event, Clinton said that emphasizing and promoting abortion is a key issue in President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. She also defended taxpayer funded abortions for poor women.
During an interview on The View recently Hillary Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. Her comments came just days after Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.
In February, Clinton defended partial-birth abortions: “My husband vetoed a very restrictive legislation on late-term abortions, and he vetoed it at an event in the White House where we invited a lot of women who had faced this very difficult decision, that ought to be made based on their own conscience, their family, their faith, in consultation with doctors. Those stories left a searing impression on me,” she continued.
Clinton has said more taxpayer money needs to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and Clinton demonstrated her unyielding commitment to abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, accepting their endorsement during a pro-abortion rally — saying she would be the abortion business’ president.
“I will always defend Planned Parenthood and I will say consistently and proudly, Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported and protected, not undermined, misrepresented and demonized,” Clinton said. “As your president, I will always have your back.”
At a speech to the Women in the World Conference in April 2015, Hillary Clinton argued, “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care (aka. abortion) and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” In order to expand worldwide access to abortion, she suggested that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
