In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s radical anti-Life views played a decisive role in her defeat. Clinton’s adherence to an extreme anti-Life platform, including support for abortion through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, was out of step with the majority of Americans. Google Trends from election day reveal that Clinton’s stance on Life issues was the single most searched item in the hours leading up to voting.
In her forthcoming tell-all book, “What Happened,” Clinton doubles down on her abortion activism. In a book purportedly explaining her defeat to Pro-Life President Donald Trump, ignoring how Clinton’s support of abortion on demand contributed to the election results seems a significant oversight. Nevertheless, advance copies show that Clinton is far from silent about abortion. The Washington Examiner reports that Clinton uses the book as an opportunity to weigh in on the issue of Pro-Life Democrats. Clinton endorses the controversial decision of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez, who demanded earlier this year that all Democratic candidates commit to an anti-Life platform, no exceptions.
Clinton claims to allow for Democrat candidates who are privately opposed to abortion but insists that in public they must endorse the anti-Life agenda. Such a stance would exclude long-standing Pro-Life groups like Democrats for Life and all other legitimately Pro-Life politicians. Clinton writes, “We have to remain a big tent, but a big tent is only as strong as the poles that hold it up. Reproductive rights is central to women’s rights and women’s health, and it’s one of the most important tent poles we’ve got.” In other words, according to failed presidential candidate Clinton, abortion on demand is not negotiable and is a core tenant of her party.
In addition to her empty invitation for Pro-Lifers to join the Democrat party, Clinton suggests that she has “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.” Her statement is incorrect. As evidenced by the hyperbolic “Champion of the Century” award Clinton received from Planned Parenthood, Clinton has spent her political career sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood. Although deluded abortion activists insist that Planned Parenthood reduces the number of abortions, the fact remains that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the United States. As such, the abortion organization is an integral part of the predatory and lucrative abortion industry in our nation. Despite the hype, there is no evidence that sending fungible tax dollars to Planned Parenthood reduces the number of abortions. We do know, however, that tax dollars sent to Planned Parenthood support the killing of more than 320,000 preborn babies every year.
In her upcoming book, “What Happened,” Hillary Clinton ignores some of the key reasons for her defeat, notably her close friendship with abortion giant Planned Parenthood and her uncompromising anti-Life platform. Instead of acknowledging the Americans purposefully rejected the most anti-Life presidential ticket in the history of our country, Clinton lays blame elsewhere and doubles down on abortion activism.
