How Can Hillary Clinton Claim to be Pro-Woman When Abortion Has Killed 29 Million Girl Babies?
Millions of Girls Have Been Deprived of Their Womanhood by the Very Ones Who Claim to be Their “Champion.”
By Steven Ertelt Life News A pro-life advocate says pro-abortion Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton is disingenuous for claiming she is pro woman when she supports abortion. The pro-life supporter notes that abortions have killed almost 30 million girls and that Hillary Clinton can hardly call herself a champion for women while supporting that.
Dr. John A. Sparks, the retired dean of arts and letters at Grove City College in Pennsylvania, authored a column taking Clinton’s pro-woman claims to task:
Hillary Clinton is campaigning that she, of all the candidates, is the one who is a “champion for women and girls” specifically because, among other things, she protects “women’s reproductive health” and “confronts violence against women.”
Her primary talking point is that she has worked 30 years for women and children. The media and various groups accept this claim without examining just how illogical it is and without considering the cruel irony.
Let’s look at Clinton’s assertion that she is a champion of girls and women. Hillary Clinton is a Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion advocate. No one denies that. Her stance has become more and more strident. She no long uses the phrase of years ago that abortion should be “safe, legal and rare.” “Rare” is gone from that trio to be replaced by “publicly funded.” She is advancing abortions. She is ardently pro-abortion. Think about what this means. The number of abortions in the United States since Roe vs. Wade is over 58,000,000. The distribution of boys to girls in live-birth statistics gives a slight edge to boys: 51 percent boys to 49 percent girls. Assuming that the sex ratio (boys to girls) for children aborted is roughly the same as for live births, this means that just under 29,000,000 girls have lost their lives to abortion since 1973.
One can quibble about these numbers, but the fact remains that millions of girls’ lives have been snuffed out while they were still in the womb.
