Hillary Clinton is fighting the claim that Democrats favor abortion at birth, calling the accusation “absolutely false.”
The two most pro-abortion Democratic governors in the country, J.B. Pritzker of Illinois and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, were in on the conversation. Clinton claimed that pro-life activists all around the country have mounted a “strong backlash” following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
In 2019, Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, horrifyingly stated that the infant would be “kept comfortable” until the mother and physician decided to murder it.
KathyTran, a delegate from Virginia who wrote the Real Act, claimed that her law would legalize abortion at any point in a woman’s pregnancy, regardless of how far along she was. Countless Democrats in different states around the United States have approved similarly savage legislation in recent years.
Clinton probed Whitmer for more ostensible feminist justifications for abortion. She emphasized that ensuring that people have access to and are protected in exercising those rights is crucial to the health of the economy and the nation’s ability to remain competitive. Clinton said that she felt it was necessary to emphasize the importance of speaking out for economic rights and opportunities.
Chelsea Clinton, Clinton’s daughter, famously drew heavy fire in 2018 for statements that were similar to those made by Whitmer. Clinton claimed that women entering the workforce in the United States between 1973 and 2009 boosted GDP by $3.5 trillion. She connected that data to the 1973 Supreme Court decision on Roe v Wade.
Conservatives who respect life and traditional families were outraged by Clinton’s worship of “the economy.” Roe led to the murder of 60 million babies.
Both Illinois and Michigan rank among the ten most pro-abortion-rights-friendly states.
The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute in Illinois reported a 25% increase in abortions between 2017 and 2020. The state banned partial-birth abortion, but it was repealed in 2019 when Governor Pritzker signed a bill allowing abortion on demand up until birth.
The state’s 1931 abortion ban has been lifted thanks to a flurry of laws signed into law by Whitmer.
