Hillary Clinton: Abortion is "Sacrosanct" and Non-Negotiable for Democrats

Peter LaBarbera : Sep 14, 2017  LifeSiteNews.com

Understanding that many working-class Democratic voters are pro-life, there is a move afoot to make the Democratic Party—notoriously rigid in rejecting right-to-life advocacy—more open to pro-lifers.

"After the election," Clinton wrote in her forthcoming book, "What Happened," "Bernie [Sanders] suggested that Democrats should be open to nominating and supporting candidates who are anti-choice. Other topics, such as economic justice, are sacrosanct, but apparently women's health is not."

"I don't mean to criticize only Bernie here. A lot of progressives join him in thinking that reproductive rights are negotiable," wrote the former Democratic presidential nominee whose surprise loss to Donald Trump left her party searching for ways to recover, including its "pro-choice" rigidity.

According to the Washington Examiner, Clinton in her book resurrects the old claim used by many political liberals—from former New York Governor Mario Cuomo to Senator Tim Kaine—that one can be "personally against abortion" and yet support abortion as a "right" in the law.

That duality is universally rejected by the pro-life movement, which regards laws allowing the killing of innocent, defenseless babies in the womb a human rights violation of incalculable proportions. As to Clinton's tactic of advancing her "pro-choice" views on abortion in the name of "women's rights," pro-life women counter that across the world, sex-selection abortions disproportionately kill female unborn children.

"I've been working for a quarter century with Democrats and Republicans alike to reduce the number of abortions, in part by expanding access to birth control and family planning, and we've made progress," Clinton wrote, according to the Examiner. "And I picked as my running mate Tim Kaine, a Democrat personally opposed to abortion because of his Catholic faith but supportive of women's rights as a matter of law and policy."
