On July 20, 2016, in an article I wrote entitled To My Christian Friends and Fellow Voters, I stated that Hillary Clinton is pro abortion. Some extremely succinct and polite person responded simply “She’s not pro abortion, liar.” Well, as they say these days, I believe I’ll ‘double down’ on my assertion that Hillary is pro abortion, while also agreeing with the comment that Hillary indeed IS a liar. But that subject is for another article. Let’s talk about Hillary Clinton being pro abortion.
I found a section in Hillary Clinton’s official website labeled “Womens Rights and Opportunity,” and one of the bullet points on that page states that she “Proudly stands with Planned Parenthood. Hillary is proud to have earned the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. She will always defend the essential health and reproductive care that Planned Parenthood provides for women.” The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is a Super PAC that “exists to ensure that elected officials support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about family planning and reproductive health,” on in other words a political lobby organization that tries to keep the Planned Parenthood agenda alive, which includes performing abortions. Hillary PROUDLY stands with Planned Parenthood, is endorsed by an organization whose function is to keep the right to perform abortions legal, and DEFENDS the organization’s right to perform abortions. Based on that information, we can logically assume that Hillary Clinton is not only pro choice, she celebrates the existence of a business that practices abortion. I think that qualifies Hillary Clinton to be pro abortion, don’t you?
Now that this ‘doubling down’ has produced two winning hands, I should take my chips and leave. But we’re not here for fun and games, are we? There’s nothing more serious than the systematic destruction of defenseless human life. I could talk about the ongoing investigation of Planned Parenthood’s practices which includes allegations that the US’s largest abortion provider is profiting from the sale of fetal tissue and that their abortion practitioners alter procedures in order to maximize the harvesting of fetal tissue. In 2015, an anti-abortion organization (led by David Daleiden) called The Center for Medical Progress produced investigative footage revealing how Planned Parenthood profits from fetal tissue ‘donations.’ The videos are extremely graphic and deeply disturbing. Even more disturbing is that a grand jury in Harris County, Texas cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing, and instead indicted Daledein on felony charges of tampering with governmental records by making and using a fake driver’s license. Still, the videos exist and offer irrefutable evidence of the lengths Planned Parenthood will go to make money from aborted fetuses. Just this issue alone would be enough for a handful of articles exposing the organization, but in the interest of efficiency I’ve provided links above that will illuminate this. Keep in mind that Hillary Clinton PROUDLY stands with Planned Parenthood.
I could also talk statistics. The Washington Post recently wrote a fact-checking article regarding the percentage of services by Planned Parenthood that involves abortions. The newspaper looked into claims by the Susan B Anthony’s List that of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, 94% of the services are abortions. Although true in this context, by the Planned Parenthood’s reckoning abortion services only account for 3% of their total services. Even if we agree wholeheartedly with the Planned Parenthood stats, they still performed 327,653 abortions in ONE YEAR, according to their own report. That is one-third of all the abortions performed in the US. Here is another statistic, dear reader: from 1973 to 2011, there were 53 MILLION legal abortions. Let that number sink into you. I could go so deep into statistics that it would make all of our brains explode. Again, I’ve provided links for you if you chose to have your head explode. Hillary Clinton DEFENDS the right to perform abortion.
But what I truly want to share with you today, the essence of this article, is that I believe that life begins at conception, and that all life is precious. Pro-Choice advocates say that a woman has the right to do anything with her body, to include having an abortion. Rights have responsibilities, do you agree? A woman has the right to refuse to use birth control, but is there any other reason to refuse birth control than to choose to become pregnant? Fine. Choose not to have birth control, ma’am. You have that right. With that right, you consciously bear the responsibility of your actions. If you didn’t want to get pregnant, you should have prevented it with birth control. If you do in fact become pregnant, that means that within your womb a new and unique human being has been created by you and your partner, and you have a moral obligation to protect and preserve that life. This new and unique human being, this life within you, has as much right to live as you do. If you don’t want the responsibility of raising that new and unique human being once he or she is able to exist outside your womb, there are many, many women who will be eager to raise this child as their own.
But what if a woman is raped and becomes pregnant, or discovers that the child growing within has severe birth defects? Aren’t these also new and unique human beings? A woman who is pregnant by rape, or who will give birth to a boy or girl with birth defects has a difficult choice ahead of her. Again, I believe that ALL life is precious. What do you think, reader?
38 states have fetal homicide laws. 23 of those states have fetal homicide laws that apply to the earliest stages of pregnancy. If you are pregnant and someone comes along and punches you on purpose in the stomach hard enough to cause that fetus to die, do you think that person should be tried for murder? What makes abortion any different? This question bears repeating: what makes abortion any different?
Hillary Clinton is pro abortion. She thinks that it’s ok to terminate, to kill, to murder an innocent, helpless human being. Pro choice IS pro abortion.
Hillary Clinton is pro abortion. If she becomes President, she will elect Supreme Court Justices that will advance her beliefs. More new and unique human beings will be slaughtered for years to come. Are you ok with this? Be sure. Lives depend on you.
