On April 12, Hillary Clinton announced her intention to, for the second time, run for president.
In her roles as First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State, Clinton propelled a pro-abortion agenda. Just days before the announcement, LifeNews.com put together a piece highlighting Clinton’s involvement with abortion.
Clinton has also spoke at events for pro-abortion organizations, and received awards from such organizations. She was the recipient of an award from EMILY’S List in 2014 and the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood in 2009.
Clinton gave the keynote address for the group’s gala early last month, a year after she received an award from EMILY’S List.
The presidency of her husband, whose administration Clinton’s is likely to resemble, was a pro-abortion one. President Bill Clinton’s policy was to make abortion “safe, legal and rare,” and he vetoed a partial-birth abortion ban in 1996.
However, the campaign for the White House is underway. Clinton announced her campaign for President with a video titled, “Getting Started.”
Most notable is the couple featured in the ad at 36 seconds. While the couple appears for roughly six seconds, the woman is visibly pregnant, and the man talks about preparing for the “baby boy, coming [their] way.”
In the ad, Clinton says, “everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”
However, pro-lifers are concerned that Clinton is leaving some “everyday Americans” out. A Facebook post tagging pro-life activists, Jill Stanek and Abby Johnson, notes that “Mrs. Clinton would support aborting babies at that stage.”
What if the preborn child in his mother’s womb in the ad had not been wanted or planned? Clinton’s politics demonstrate she will not be a champion for him.
