Seeing how extreme Hillary Clinton has been with abortion in the past – her whole family too, for that matter – nothing coming from her today should be seen as shocking. But supporting down syndrome-based and gender-based abortions?
Okay, still not shocking, but don’t you feel gross just knowing that it isn’t?
“I will defend a woman’s right to make her own health-care decisions,” Clinton said to a few hundred supporters packed into a sweltering recreation center. “I’ll tell ya, I’ll defend Planned Parenthood against these attacks. And I commend the women of this state, young and old, for standing up against this governor and this legislature.”
She did not mention the details of the legislation, House Bill 1337, which bans abortions for several factors not deemed life-threatening. As enacted, the bill prohibits termination of pregnancy if the woman asking for it is motivated by the “race, color, national origin, ancestry, or sex of the fetus” or “diagnosis or potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability.”
I see. So a leftist politician issued a statement in defense of Planned Parenthood and against a law without even knowing – or caring – about any of the facts beforehand?
Now, I understand that not every politician is going to know every detail to be contained in every bill… but this kind of a situation is not an outlier.
Whether it was Barack Obama voting against a bill to protect babies born alive through surviving abortion or Elizabeth Warren supporting unrestricted abortion well beyond even the most stringent definition of “viability,” the left has consistently held radical positions on abortions for decades. Why? Because they can’t afford to offend the sensibilities of their buzz-cutter, chain-gang, feminist voting constituency who still believe in the mantra of “Free abortion on demand. Anytime. Period.”
Yes, this includes aborting babies with special needs. Yes, this includes Eugenics. Which should come as no surprise, seeing as Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a huge advocate of the practice (Read “What You Need to Know About The Founder of Planned Parenthood” here).
Your body, your choice? Meet the faces of the “choices” that could have been killed.
