This morning on Meet the Press on NBC, Hillary Clinton told Chuck Todd that “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.”
Here’s a transcript:
NBC’S CHUCK TODD: “When, or if, does an unborn child have constitutional rights?”
CLINTON: “Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can, in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support. It doesn’t mean that you don’t do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does include sacrificing the woman’s right to make decisions. And I think that’s an important distinction, that under Roe v. Wade we’ve had enshrined under our Constitution.”
The Republican National Committee responded:
Hillary Clinton has repeatedly avoided giving a definitive stance on the rights of unborn children throughout her career, but when pressed this morning by NBC’s Chuck Todd to define her positon on what limits to abortion she believes in, Clinton revealed that she believes no unborn child is subject to constitutional rights. Voters now know Clinton’s extreme stance against the value of protecting life, and can no longer be misled by her deceptive pandering.
Sadly, this is no surprise. Hillary has said before that she couldn’t favor any restrictions on abortion until very late in the 9th month. Also, last year Planned Parenthood pledged to spend millions to work for her election and endorsed her.
Hillary also carried Planned Parenthood’s water when it came to defending them for their harvest and sale of body parts from unborn babies. That practice was exposed last year by videos by the Center for Medical Progress.
