Hillary Doubles Down: Child Just Before Birth Has No Constitutional Rights (Video)
She keeps digging.
Via Free Beacon:
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she does not believe that a child has any constitutional rights on his or her due date moments before birth.
Clinton made her comment during an appearance on The View in response to a question posed by co-host Paula Faris.
Faris first referenced Clinton’s comments Sunday from Meet the Press when she said that “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” before asking, “At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child on its due date just hours before delivery still has no constitutional rights?”
“Under our law, that is the case,” Clinton responded while nodding her head. “I support Roe v. Wade because I think it’s an important statement about the importance of a woman making this most difficult decision with consultation by whom she chooses … and under the law, and certainly under [Roe v. Wade], that is the way we structure it.”
Clinton’s view indicates that she supports abortions during the entire duration of pregnancy, including partial-birth abortions.
Abortion has come to the forefront of the 2016 presidential race ever since Republican frontrunner Donald Trump suggested last week there should be some form of “punishment” for a woman who has an abortion if it were made illegal under his presidency.
Pro-life advocates lambasted Trump’s statement as contradictory to their views.
