Hillary Clinton Says That An “UNBORN PERSON” Doesn’t Have Constitutional Rights (VIDEO)
Hillary Clinton was on Meet the Press yesterday and was asked by host Chuck Todd for her position on abortion. As a follow up, Todd asked her if the unborn have Constitutional protections and her answer was a little odd.
On one hand, she acknowledged the unborn as people by calling them “unborn persons” but then said that they don’t have Constitutional rights.
Here’s a transcript via Townhall:
Hillary Clinton: “The Unborn Person Doesn’t Have Constitutional Rights”
“When or if does an unborn child have constitutional rights?” Todd asked.
“Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. 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. It doesn’t mean that, you know, don’t do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does not include sacrificing the woman’s right to make decisions. And I think that’s an important distinction that under Roe v. Wade we’ve had refined under our Constitution,” Clinton said.

Which is it Hillary? Don’t most feminists agree that the unborn are just a mass of cells?
