Tonight’s presidential debate ignored the biggest issue on the minds of millions of pro-life voters — where the candidates stand on the more than four decades of legalized abortions that have collectively destroyed the lives of 58 million unborn children.
While the debate didn’t get into the important issue, pro-life voters can’t forget how, during an interview on The View, Hillary Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. her comments come just days after Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.
During the interview a host on The View followed up on the previous comments:
PAULA FARIS: And Secretary, I want to ask you about some comments that you made over the weekend on Meet the Press regarding abortion. You said, quote, “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.” My question is at what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery still has no constitutional rights?
HILLARY CLINTON: Under our law, that is the case.
But was Clinton just citing the current law? No, she continues on to say that she supports Roe v. Wade, which makes it the case that unborn children have no constitutional rights even hours before birth. She added that she thinks women should have the sole decision-making power over the lives of unborn children without any limits.
If elected, Clinton potentially would be the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. Clinton’s abortion stance is radical and out of touch with most Americans. She promised Planned Parenthood that she would try to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions, which would funnel even more tax dollars to the abortion industry.
In February, she defended the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure. Then, during an interview on The View in April, Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. At a presidential forum at Drake University, Clinton called ending the life of another human being in an abortion a “fundamental human right.”
The Trump-Pence team would present a stark contrast on abortion to Clinton. Trump has promised to appoint pro-life judges who will protect the right to life for unborn babies.
“We are going to appoint great Supreme Court justices… These will be justices of great intellect… And they will be pro-life,” Trump told pro-life leaders in June.
Trump also released a well-received list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees — a list pro-life groups hailed for having strong supporters of the Constitution.
Pence is a pro-life champion who has signed multiple pieces of pro-life legislation into law and led the fight in Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood. Earlier this year, Pence signed a law to protect unborn babies with disabilities like Down syndrome from being aborted.
Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood called Trump “dangerous” because he would “ban abortions.” In June, the abortion chain also attacked Trump as “hateful” in a series of online ads aimed at young voters.
While Clinton supports abortion, Donald Trump recently released a well-received list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees — a list pro-life groups hailed for having strong supporters of the Constitution. Trump also recently hired a key pro-life advocate has his domestic policy director.
If Trump is the nominee, he would present a stark contrast on abortion to pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Trump has specifically promised he would sign a bill as president to de-fund Planned Parenthood. In an interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise:
David Brody: “As a President Trump, if a bill came to your desk that would defund Planned Parenthood you would support that, you would sign that?”
Donald Trump: “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion.”
As far as Trump’s comments on Planned Parenthood funding are concerned, Trump has fairly consistently said he opposes taxpayer funding but he’s also made some remarks about the “good things” Planned Parenthood does that have alarmed pro-life voters — as if any “good thing” could make up for the fact that planned Parenthood kills 330,000 unborn babies a year in abortions and then sells their body parts for profit.
Meanwhile, Trump said he thinks the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that ushered in an era of 48 million abortions was “wrongly decided.” Trump said he would appoint “very good judges” who would ultimately “change it” but he opposed Roe without specifically saying it should be overturned.
