HILLARY CLINTON ON SCOTUS DECISION:
From the Senate: Statement on Supreme Court's Gonzales v. Carhart Decision Washington, DC -- "This decision marks a dramatic departure from four decades of Supreme Court rulings that upheld a woman's right to choose and recognized the importance of women's health. Today's decision blatantly defies the Court's recent decision in 2000 striking down a state partial-birth abortion law because of its failure to provide an exception for the health of the mother. As the Supreme Court recognized in Roe v. Wade in 1973, this issue is complex and highly personal; the rights and lives of women must be taken into account. It is precisely this erosion of our constitutional rights that I warned against when I opposed the nominations of Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito."
Hubby Bill did not sign the pb bill when he was President.
Maybe Hill needs to throw a few more ashtrays in his direction.
She’s an ill informed B$tch.
what a godless servant she is
She is one sick woman.
No, Hillary. It is precisely one step in the effort to protect the life in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Her kookiness is why a nobody like Obama is actually getting some traction in the Rat Race.
Four decades tooooooooooooo long Hillary! Bake some cookies and get real!
Blatantly defied itself? Right Hillary. Stupid Bee-otch?
Uh, Hillary? The Supreme Court did not recognize anything with Roe v. Wade, they made it all up from whole cloth.
((( PING )))
Hitlery can go straight to hell.
In your face Hillary!
Why the drop after 1960? (in deaths of women from illegal abortions)
The reasons were new and better antibiotics, better surgery and the establishment of intensive care units in hospitals. This was in the face of a rising population. Between 1967 and 1970 sixteen states legalized abortion. In most it was limited, only for rape, incest and severe fetal handicap (life of mother was legal in all states). There were two big exceptions California in 1967, and New York in 1970 allowed abortion on demand. Now look at the chart carefully.
Abortion Statistics - Decision to Have an Abortion (U.S.)
· 25.5% of women deciding to have an abortion want to postpone childbearing
· 21.3% of women cannot afford a baby
· 14.1% of women have a relationship issue or their partner does not want a child
· 12.2% of women are too young (their parents or others object to the pregnancy)
· 10.8% of women feel a child will disrupt their education or career
· 7.9% of women want no (more) children
· 3.3% of women have an abortion due to a risk to fetal health
2.8% of women have an abortion due to a risk to maternal health
So how many womens lives have been saved by abortion?
Only about 3% of abortions since 1972 were reported to be due to a risk to maternal health. A reasonable person would recognize that not all of those cases represent a lethal risk. But lets say they did. That means that nearly 45 million fetuses were butchered to save the lives of about 1.3 million women. Or put another way; 35 babies are killed to save each woman.
Abortion was legal in all 50 states prior to Roe v. Wade in cases of danger to the life of the woman.
Registered ob/gyns testified under oath to Congressional committees that this particular heinous method of aborting a baby was not ever required to save the life of a pregnant woman. Common sense should so inform any sentient person, inasmuch as the child victim has already been brought almost entirely through and out of the birth canal before the final lethal act is executed.
ANTI-ABORTION ANTHEM — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1819628/posts?page=1
A womam's right to choooose what Hillary? The NOW gang and the anti-human, anti-life pro-abort crowd never say what it is a woman is choosing. They won't do it in public. Why is that? They won't even formulate the choose sentence in proper English syntax.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Hillary officially becomes an abortion extremist. Doesn’t Obama also support a “right” Birth-Canal Butchery?
No, she is a power hungry Marxist, evil to the core, demon.
I want Hillary and Nancy and Barbara etc. to give the American people one instance of a Woman losing her life due to allowing 97% percent of the baby being born and then killing it!
Hillary is the one case where I would have supported abortion.
What were her parents thinking?
Late term abortion.
That’s liberal-speak for “infanticide”
Pssst Hillary! it is NOT a constitutional right to MURDER a baby who's head is sticking out of the womb. If a "woman" doesn't want the baby, fine give it up for adoption, don't MURDER it under the excuse of "womans rights" by sucking it's brains out while the poor child is trying to focus his/her eyes for the very first time.
Sorry, Shrillary. If a woman's health can tolerate carrying to term, dilating, and pushing the baby down the birth canal, she can tolerate it actually crowning and emerging from her body.
Killing the baby at that point is not relevant to the woman's health.....and you know it.
Calm down Hilary, and take solace in the knowledge that your darling hubby Bill, always tried his best to deliver his well shared gift, in a fashion such as to preclude the possibility of pregnancy.
Hillary affirms its a right to pull a baby halfway out and stick a fork in its head - Theres your next president.
One cool thing about the Supreme Court decision is that Every politician running will be questioned and will have trouble ducking giving an opinion on the issue.
Dems have always opposed death for the most guilty and supported for the most innocent.
Actually it's not complex at all. It's quite simple: killing defenseless babies is simply wrong.
And the lives of women are taken into account. Unborn women, and their mothers, who will, except in a few heartless cases, live to regret an abortion should they commit one.
(referring to the capital punishment not the war)
Excellent point. Hitlery won’t be able to skirt that one.
I understood :)
Hmmm. Could it be that established legal precedent is a radical contradiction to the Constitution and basic human rights?
Is it too late for her mom to get an abortion?
Starting with Julianne Brown. 43 women have come forward and demanded DNA tests to prove that William Jefferson Clinton is the father of their children.
What about Wade overturning the previous 200 years of court decisions? Hello? Hello...?
I’m glad that Hillary and everyone will say where they stand. I think it’s good for people running for office to tell us what they think and where they stand. Hillary ran for office twice in New York talking about generalities such as “the children are our future”. It’s good to see her on the record on a major issue.
If Hillary can’t stand the heat, she should go back to the kitchen. Politics is a rough business; there’s no entitlement to be in elective office.
This so-called “woman”, Hillary Clinton, is cold and heartless. “She” should shut up about protecting the “health” of women. What a crock.
“She” makes my skin crawl.
The dead-soul demonspawn speaks out to defend the rite of child slaughter. No surprise, she’s a democrap aprty leader ...
The hag approves of partial birth abortion - freakin ghoul.
True, and for the Dems to shore up their lib bases, they'll have to be very vocal about it.
Strange that a woman who has had so little opportunity to potentially become pregnant would be so passionate about ending pregnancies. One would think she was married to a man who actually wanted to have sex with her frequently.
“I want Hillary and Nancy and Barbara etc. to give the American people one instance of a Woman losing her life due to allowing 97% percent of the baby being born and then killing it!”
In a a very tight race, this SCOTUS decision has just given Hilary the single issue she needs to put her over the top.
Unintended consequences !
Shut up Hillary, nobody likes you. Go away
” In a a very tight race, this SCOTUS decision has just given Hilary the single issue she needs to put her over the top.”
How is this going to put her over the top? The vast majority in this country oppose partial birth abortion...
If a thug shoots a pregnant woman in the belly and both she and the fetus die, it's double homicide. If the woman aborts the baby, it's a right?
I honestly cannot wrap my head around all these supposed "rights" I keep hearing about from politicians.
