A video making the rounds on social media shows a child at around 10 weeks gestation moving around on someone's gloved palm in a hospital room before he dies from exposure. It's unclear whether this is the result of a miscarriage or a botched abortion, but one thing is clear: contrary to the mantra of abortion activists, this is no "blob of tissue."
Hillary Clinton supports the "right" to kill such children, even calling abortion a "human right." Although she and other abortion activists sanitize the procedure by calling it "termination of pregnancy" and the murdered remains the "products of conception," here in graphic detail is precisely what takes place: the agonizing death of a child, created in the image of God, just as deserving of life as anyone else.
Hillary Clinton has taken some of the most extreme positions on abortion. When she was a guest on Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked her, "When, or if, does an unborn child have constitutional rights?"
She responded, "Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights."
She clarified her radical position two days later when she was a guest on the talk show The View. Host Paula Faris asked, "My question is at what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery still has no constitutional rights?"
Clinton answered, "Under our law, that is the case, Paula. I support Roe v. Wade."
She has called abortion "the most basic of human rights," and opposed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would have protected the unborn from painful abortion procedures. The most common type of abortion in the second trimester is dilation and evacuation, which involves a doctor taking forceps, grabbing a limb of the unborn child and tugging until it's ripped from his body. He proceeds literally to rip the baby apart limb from limb until he dies from the shock and the trauma.
Fetal pain experts show the unborn can feel the agony of such procedures, and the House of Representatives voted to pass a law protecting the unborn from such brutality — but Clinton objected, issuing a statement saying, "This bill is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, which has protected a woman's constitutional right to privacy for over 40 years."
Even worse, Clinton repeatedly voted to protect the most gruesome form of abortion: partial-birth abortion, which involved delivering a child in the breech position up to his neck, sticking scissors into the back of his skull, and suctioning out the contents of his brain. During this entire procedure, the child is alive, flailing and moving about, until his brains are removed. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed the procedure.
