Hillary Clinton Loves People With Disabilities, But Only if They Weren’t Aborted

Writing at the Federalist, pro-life writer Mary Powers hits on one the biggest duplicitous positions of pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. On one hand Clinton is able to show apparent real emotion and support for people with disabilities, but on the other hand she shows absolutely no compassion for unborn children who are victimized by abortion.

Powers underscores the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde juxtaposition in Clinton’s position. Ultimately she says Hillary Clinton’s problem is that she can’t apply the same compassion that she has for people after birth to those human beings before birth.

The presidential campaign debate tonight is no different. On the list of invitees, Hillary Clinton has a person with disabilities. While that is worthy of applause and draws good attention to disabled people, it’s a certainty that if abortion comes up during the debate Hillary Clinton will take the most absolutist pro-abortion position possible to continue drawing applause from Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion cronies.

And it is Hillary Clinton’s unwavering love of abortion that right or power says ultimately disqualifies her from any pro-life voters presidential ballot.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Here are some excerpts from her excellent article at the Federalist:

In Wednesday’s speech on jobs, Hillary Clinton made a beautiful plea for those with disabilities, without recognizing her own handicap: an abortion worldview. The double standard for helping those with disabilities while advocating for abortion does not seem to be contradictory in her own mind—so much so that it can be likened to the great story by Robert Louis Stevenson: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Clinton’s “Dr. Jekyll” moment, as it were, was amazing. She talked about the years she worked to ensure that people with disabilities would have the ability to reach their potential and participate in society.

I agree with Clinton. I work with a beautiful girl who has an intellectual disability, and she never ceases to amaze me. She is not only smiling and optimistic all the time, but intelligent and always reaching new heights in her education. Very soon she will join the workforce, and I am looking forward to the wonderful work she will do—not only professionally but also in serving those around her with an attitude and spirit of joy. I agree with Clinton that she should not be isolated from society because of her handicap.

But unfortunately, Mr. Hyde has also appeared on the national stage many times as Clinton fought for people with disabilities. The handicap that appears with her “Mr. Hyde” moments is an abortion worldview: one in which human lives are disposable if they are not valuable politically or in the moment.

The same people with disabilities for whom Clinton advocates are the same people who survived her abortion activism while they were in the womb.

Because of this, Clinton’s unrestrained Mr. Hyde personality will always overcome the Dr. Jekyll within her, so the pro-abortion lobby will always win when she faces major decisions.
