In a speech last year, Hillary Clinton lamented that too many women are supposedly denied abortions. The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that pro-abortion comment, but she also drew widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech.
The comment had Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions.
“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion.
“Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
Now, with the presidential election season in full swing, pro-life advocates are reminding voters about that comment and Clinton’s pro-abortion extremism in general. From a Washington report:
Gary Bauer’s American Values Action released a video highlighting Clinton’s statements on the issue, which critics call extreme.
The video shows clips of Clinton pushing abortion with statements such as:
— “I would like to see Planned Parenthood even get more funding.”
— “Deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.”
— “The unborn person doesn’t have Constitutional rights.”
— “The only people that I would ever appoint to the Supreme Court are people who believe that Roe V. Wade is settled law.”
