It’s one of the most bizarre quotes ever and Chelsea Clinton just gave it legs.
Years ago, Chelsea Clinton made the strange comment that she was upset her maternal grandmother did not have access to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
As LifeNews reported at the time, Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.” If her grandmother had gone to Planned Parenthood for an abortion, Chelsea would not have been born.
In a new interview with Planned Parenthood president Leana Wen, Clinton re-upped the comment:
When I was on a panel recently with Cecile [Richards], I said how much I wish that my grandmother — my mom’s mom — had been able to go to a Planned Parenthood. She had unwed teenage parents who abandoned her multiple times throughout her life. She had to start working to support herself before her 14th birthday. She was aware that there was something deeply unjust about her situation, dealing with questions of menstruation and reproductive healthcare without somewhere to go.
Of course, when I shared this, the anti-choice movement translated it as saying I wished my grandmother had aborted my mother. Which is, of course, not what I said and not what I meant.
Although some pro-life people responded to Chelsea’s comment by saying she wanted her grandmother to have an abortion of her mother Hillary Clinton — that was not the reaction most people had. Most pro-life people were surprised Chelsea made the comment because her grandmother could have had an abortion.
After all, Planned Parenthood has the biggest abortion business in the United States and routinely kills more than 300,000 unborn babies and abortions. And when it comes to pregnant women, 95% of pregnant women who go to a Planned Parenthood get an abortion as opposed to giving birth or finalizing an adoption plan for their baby.
So the question remains. Why would Chelsea Clinton want her maternal grandmother to go to a Planned Parenthood abortion business when the likelihood is great that her grandmother’s intention for going would be to terminate her own mother’s life?
She brought it up merely to trash pro-lifers. Chelsea Clinton makes her rationale clear. Her only goal is demonizing pro-life Americans by engaging in juvenile name-calling, referring to pro-life people as anti-choice even though abortion denies each and every choice a baby would ever make.
“It was my first, and hardly my last, experience with the bad faith in which the anti-choice movement operates,” she said, adding, “I refuse to refer to the anti-choice movement as anything other than anti-choice.”
It’s not bad faith to accurate quote you Chelsea and to point out the obvious ramifications of your comments.
