Pro-Life Women Leaders: “We Can’t Celebrate Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton as First Woman President”

Hillary Clinton will be addressing a rally for the Planned Parenthood abortion business today — with her first speech as the first female presidential nominee coming to the nation’s largest abortion corporation. Because of her longtime abortion advocacy, a group of pro-life women leaders told they can’t celebrate her possibly becoming the first woman president.

The pro-life women leaders said:

“As female leaders of the pro-life movement who represent millions of women of all ages, we cannot celebrate this first nomination of a woman for the office of the U.S. president by a major political party because of Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion record and alliance with the abortion lobby. The unholy alliance between Clinton and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, is disgraceful.

“Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in taxpayer money annually, then funnels tens of millions of dollars to candidates like Clinton to further its agenda and increase its bottom line. They both profit from the abortion industry in a self-serving cycle. Instead of empowering women, Clinton and Planned Parenthood lie to women, betray women, and sell out women and children, all in the name of profit. Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood do not represent us.”

Signers of the statement included:

  • Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life of America
  • Marjorie Dannenfelser, Susan B. Anthony List
  • Jeanne Mancini, March for Life
  • Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America
  • Meg McDonnell, Women Speak for Themselves
  • Helen Alvare, Women Speak for Themselves
  • Arina Grossu, FRC Action
  • Catherine Glenn Foster, Sound Legal
  • Charmaine Yoest, former president of Americans United for Life
  • Lila Rose
  • Nancy Tanner

Arina Grossu, FRC Action’s Director of the Center for Human Dignity commented:

“If elected president, Hillary Clinton would absolutely push radical policies that betray women and kill preborn babies. She would also push for the nomination of pro-abortion Supreme Court justices, which will have far-reaching consequences. She received $20 million from Planned Parenthood, America’s number one baby-killer and an organization that lies to vulnerable women for profit. Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women. Clinton and Planned Parenthood have betrayed women by continuing to sell them the abortion industry’s lies.”

SIGN THE PETITION! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Voters need to be reminded that Clinton received a question from host Bret Baier about abortion and whether or not unborn children should have any rights before birth. Her answer was shocking.

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 this election, Hillary has slammed a new law in Indiana banning abortions on babies with Down syndrome.

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.”

In May 2015, the U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from excruciating late abortions. In addition to a statement slamming House lawmakers for advancing the bill, Clinton tweeted, “When it comes to women’s health, there are two kinds of experts: women and their doctors. True 40+ years ago, true today.”

At a presidential forum at Drake University, Clinton called ending the life of another human being a “fundamental human right.”

The first order of business for Clinton and her friends at the abortion company is to force Americans to pay for abortions with their tax dollars by attempting to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which has protected Americans from funding most all abortions since the late 1970s. Upheld by the Supreme Court, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion advocates who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but to pay for them.
