Choice is clear for those who value the unborn
The third and final presidential debate Wednesday night helped voters understand exactly where each candidate stands on the abortion issue. Donald Trump is pro-life and supports defunding Planned Parenthood if the organization doesn’t stop doing abortions. In contrast, Hillary Clinton clearly stated she would appoint liberal Supreme Court justices and federal court judges, in part to preserve the 1973 Supreme Court edict that legalized the termination of infants in the womb:
Clinton: “I strongly support Roe v. Wade, which guarantees a constitutional right to a woman to make the most intimate, most difficult in many cases, decisions about her healthcare that one could imagine …. I do not think the United States government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions.”
Judie Brown of the American Life League tells OneNewsNow that Mrs. Clinton’s stance is 180 degrees from that of the GOP presidential candidate.
“She has been championing the same hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood for as long as she’s been in public office – and before she was in public office actually when she was just a governor’s wife in Arkansas,” says Brown. “So I’m not a bit surprised by her. She’s devoted with all of her heart and soul with killing babies and to Planned Parenthood … and everybody knows it.”
Clinton also made it clear that women should be free to decide whether they want to kill their baby through the ninth month – right up until birth.
Jeanne Mancini of March for Life says that’s not only out of touch with pro-life America – “It’s even out of touch with the average pro-choice American,” she continues. “Six out of ten pro-choice Americans think that abortion should be limited at most to the first trimester – and that is not what Hillary Clinton stands for.”
Brown reacts as well to Clinton’s opposition to a ban on partial-birth abortion.
“She protects – quote, unquote – ‘women’s rights,’ which is a code word for ‘women’s rights to choose to kill their babies and to do everything they possibly can to avoid accepting responsibility for the babies they conceive,” states the ALL leader. “Hillary Clinton is a devotee of child killing. She’s a devotee of everything that Planned Parenthood stands for – and that’s not news to anyone.”
Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, points out that Trump stressed the appointment of pro-life judges; and that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion decisions will be placed in the hands of state lawmakers.
“He has been very firm on that throughout the entire campaign,” says Tobias. “[He] has stated it several times. This election is about the Supreme Court – because that could affect the future of unborn children for many, many years to come.”
Mancini also stresses that Clinton promises to abolish the Hyde Amendment, which forbids use of federal funds for abortions. Trump supports the Hyde Amendment.
