Hillary Clinton Has Some Shocking Comments Regarding the Unborn
As the presidential election continues to dominate headlines, Christians preparing to vote should carefully consider one issue.
Significant progress has been made concerning the defense of the unborn across our country. State legislatures are enacting pro-life laws to defend the unborn at a record pace. Abortion clinics are closing in historic numbers and currently there is far fewer clinics than there was just 15 years ago. As a nation, we are moving towards defending the unborn as science continually affirms the humanity of children in their mother’s womb.
But despite the reality that a majority of Americans want abortion reform; despite a majority of Americans claiming to be pro-life; two presidential candidates want to move us backwards and undo the significant progress made.
In an interview recently, candidate Hillary Clinton made it clear that she believes abortion is more of a right than life for the unborn. She made this statement:
“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.”
Notice what Clinton just said: a person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Acknowledging that the unborn are persons and then refusing to grant them the same Constitutional rights all citizens have is a particular evil that should concern all voters. Mrs. Clinton has just admitted that she believes that the unborn are people, but that they deserve no Constitutional rights. I wonder who else does not deserve constitutional rights in America?
But Clinton didn’t stop there. During a separate interview, when pressed to clarify her comments, Clinton was asked if an unborn child just hours before birth has any Constitutional rights. Clinton said that the child has no rights. Can you imagine supporting any law or ideal that would allow an unborn child moments before birth to be killed simply because the mother got cold feet? What sort of person would advocate for such an ideal?
Clinton went on to say that a woman’s right to choose what she does with her body trumps any rights an unborn child has. This position is the most radical pro-abortion view that many are abandoning today. Once again Clinton shows she is out of touch with science, out of touch with social issues, and out of touch with right and wrong.
Many abortion advocates have begun to admit that abortion reform is needed in light of science making clear that the unborn are indeed human. Videos showing the humanity of the unborn have softened hearts to the egregious sin of killing the unborn for convenience and the name of “choice.” But Mrs. Clinton continues to hold to a radical view that says living human beings are of no worth and not worthy of the protections all citizens of the United States deserve.
Unfortunately, she is not alone.
Candidate Bernie Sanders has agreed with Clinton that the unborn deserves no Constitutional protections. After agreeing with Clinton that the unborn deserve no protections, Sanders was asked if there should be ANY restrictions on abortion. He responded:
“I think that decision ultimately has got to be made by the woman. I have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record throughout my career. That decision must be made by the woman, must be made by her family and her physician, not by the federal government, not by the state government.” (Watch Sanders’ comments here.)
Sanders’ view is no less radical than Clinton’s. Each believes that women ought to be able to kill their unborn child for any reason. This barbarous view reduces humans to property, or commodities, easily removed and disposed of if not useful or wanted anymore. This view ignores the reality that humans are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with respect and given the protections afforded to every citizen in the Constitution.
While there is more than one issue that should be carefully considered before voting for any candidate in the upcoming election, I believe the issue of life should be at the top of that list. If we as a nation refuse to defend the most vulnerable among us, we cannot reasonably expect God to bless us. We can expect God to judge us for our national sins however.
My prayer is that we would continue to make progress in our defense of the unborn. I hope we see more pro-life laws enacted on state levels and that, by God’s grace, we will see the day Roe v. Wade is overturned. These things will not happen, however, if we elect as our next president someone that doesn’t believe all people deserve to be protected. The damage done by a radical, pro-abortion president could take decades to undo. Christians, let’s not let that happen.
