Another Clinton signaled her possible intentions to seek political power this week.

Pro-abortion Democrat Chelsea Clinton told The Westchester Journal News that she might consider running for office some day.

“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me,” she said, ahead of an event promoting her new children’s book.

The daughter of pro-abortion Democrats Bill and Hillary Clinton, the 38-year-old New York woman follows in her parents’ footsteps when it comes to supporting abortion. In August, she supported the legalized killing of unborn babies by linking abortions to a $3.5 trillion boost to America’s economy. A few weeks later, she claimed it would be “un-Christian” to overturn Roe v. Wade. The infamous case basically legalized abortions for any reason up to birth.

Asked to elaborate about her political aspirations, Clinton said she does not have any current plans to run for office, but she does think about it.

“If you care about what’s happening in the world, you have to care about running for and holding elected office,” she said. “I hope it’s a question that we ask ourselves.”

Clinton said she likes the New York politicians who represent her right now, but she has not ruled out a future political run.

“For me, I live in a neighborhood in the city and in a state where I feel my family, and what I hope for the world, is well represented,” she said. “For now, I am really focused on trying to make the change I want to see in the world through my work in the foundation, my writing and my teaching.”

Like her mother and father, Chelsea Clinton has been an advocate for abortion on demand. While campaigning for her mother in 2015, she defended Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, claiming, “We need to do everything we can to protect it.”

In September, Clinton spoke about her support for abortion during a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall, and discussed the possibility of Roe being overturned with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the court.

“When I think about all of the statistics, that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre- Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices,” Clinton said.

“We just can’t go back to that. That’s unconscionable to me. And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also un-Christian to me,” she continued.
