Clinton ‘unborn person’ comments anger both pro-choice, pro-life sides

by Bradford Richardson  |  published on April 4, 2016

Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton ran afoul of both the pro-life and pro-choice sides of the abortion debate Sunday when she said constitutional rights do not apply to an “unborn person” or “child.”

“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Mrs. Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “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.”

Mrs. Clinton also said “there is room for reasonable kinds of restrictions” on abortion during the third trimester of pregnancy.

Diana Arellano, manager of community engagement for Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, said Sunday that Mrs. Clinton’s comments undermined the cause for abortion rights.

    It is very interesting that the leading candidates for President for both political parties have made statements very close together that have angered both pro-choice and pro-life advocates. Another argument that neither Trump or Clinton are fit/qualified to be President of the United States. I say let Cruz and Sanders duke it out to see who our next President is.

    Hitlery Clinton, has taken a page out of the NAZI play book on butchering the innocent and helpless! Nothing is sacred to this political trollop!

    Hillary herself should have been aborted, then there would be a lot less anguish among the citizenry.

    • Harvey Thomas Creech

      I don’t like Hilary, but people who say that she should have aborted are way over the top. She, like everyone else after death, will be judged on her actions and whether or not she had a salvation experience and lived for God and Jesus Christ.

    This demon, called Hillary is no longer a lawyer. Had to give it up due to corruption. And we have yet to get past her networking and get her removed for public influence. But God will eventually take care of her.
    Now is the time to pray that, in HIS will, she be removed by HIM.

    The sad fact is that the shillery herself was not aborted. Nuff said.

    Hillary has never considered an infant in the womb, to be a person and therein lies her problem. She apparently sees it as a mass of foreign flesh that must be extracted, prior to completing it’s growth process. One wonders how many abortions she may have had, to come to that conclusion?

    • ADRoberts

      They say that she had several. But you know. To be a mother, you have to have some focus on someone other than yourself. And that, apparently, is not going to ever happen with her.

      • Patriot41

        So very true.

      • Harvey Thomas Creech

        Who is ‘they’ that you say has stated that Hilary has had several abortions? I don’t like Hilary but I don’t like to listen to or read rumors and gossip. She could have had several miscarriages and, after all, she birthed Chelsea so it’s not like she and Bill didn’t want children.

        • ADRoberts

          They are the same people who claim that Trump would make a great president with NO EXPERIENCE, no knowledge of foreign affairs, no knowledge of the constitution. But he does KNOW how to grease the wheels of business and finance the most LIBERAL people in Congress. LOL
          “….so it’s not like she and Bill didn’t want children.” As if that is proof of anything. Maybe Bill wanted kids and he bribed her into having one. And then there are all those SECRET SERVICE rumors that she is a lesbian. ANd that is backed up by all those PANT SUITS.
          You will jump through all kinds of hoops to defend the most despicable of the politicians, won’t you.
          So you don’t like to hear or read rumors and gossip. Then you must have rejected all those claims that Cruz is controlled by Goldman and CFR. LOL
          Not you.

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            Back off AD. I explicitly said in my post that I didn’t like Hilary so you jump to the conclusion that I am jumping through hoops to defend the most despicable politicians. I was trying to point out that one can’t(and shouldn’t)believe all the rumors and gossip that are floating out there, many by supporters of a political candidate who want to destroy the candidacy of their opponent on either side by persuading others who are trying to decide for whom to vote to vote for their guy(or gal)as the other candidates are trash if you believe the rumors about them. Also you bring up Cruz, who I never mentioned in my 1st reply to your comment. Curious – you obviously don’t like Trump, Cruz, and Hilary. So who are you supporting for both the nomination and the general election?

          • ADRoberts

            So you can comment and oppose but I can’t LOL. Typical
            I don’t care for ANY politicians. But by far, from MY evaluation, Cruz is the best. Hillary is a mafia princess who has been involve in the deaths of many people. I have list at my house of 160 plus. She is driven as an egotist who desires fame and power. Sanders is a communist and is totally irrational and a liar.
            Trump is a radical liberal pretending to be a conservative. He believed that the Democrats could not win after 8 years of Obama. So he pretends to be a conservative Republican in order to prevent a real conservative from becoming POTUS.
            I like Cruz. I hear lots of VAGUE criticism and claims that he is not a good man. But the evidence I see is that he kept his word when he was elected Senator. That he knows the Constitution. That he is a real conservative.
            And I am tired of dealing with all the TRUMPSTERS out there who irrationally accuse because they have NOTHING they can say about Trump except to “like” what he claims he will do. NO RECORD at all.

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            My bad, AD. From your previous comments, I thought that you didn’t like Cruz. I like Cruz myself. I liked other candidates better, e.g., Huckabee, Fiorino, Carson, and Rubio, but they all dropped out and Dr. Ben disappointed me by endorsing Trump(also Christie, which really surprised me). So we can agree on at least two things(Cruz= good guy and Hilary = bad girl), So, I am not your adversary. And you can post anything you want. We still have free speech through the 1st Amendment, although it’s diminishing fast because of all the ‘progressives’ and PC people out there trying to ban anything they don’t like.

  • Lockmanxo

    Maybe she should also state that illegals as well have no constitutional rights

  • 1NTXcarGuy

    Well, she’s a moron democrat, who thinks this nonsense helps her. Illegals have no constitutional right. She’s confused
