Hillary Clinton Doubles Down on Abortion Support

Early in the debate, Wallace pressed Trump on if, as president, he would want the Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Court's 1973 decision that declared a woman's right to an abortion existing under her right to privacy. And when I voted as a senator I did not think that that was the case. "And using that kind of scare rhetoric is just terribly unfortunate". Roe v. Wade with its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, actually legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy from coast to coast.

Dr. David Stevens of the Christian Medical and Dental Society asks, "How can abortion proponents defend the indefensible?"

In the paragraphs that followed, Draper describes her feelings before, during and after the abortion-she also mentions how not opting for the abortion would've put her life in danger.

"I think it is bad, if you go with what Hillary is saying, in he ninth month and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby". If someone is terminating their pregnancy after 20 weeks, it's probably because they discovered a problem with the fetus or with the health of the mother and doctors are more likely to induce labor rather than perform D&X (as long as the mother's body can handle it). "The only objective of the partial-birth abortion", Orient wrote, "is to assure that the end of the pregnancy is accompanied by the end of the life of a child about to be born". But abortion opponents complained that would have kept most such procedures legal.

Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop has also spoken strongly against the abortion method. A number of lower courts ruled the partial-birth ban was unconstitutional because it did not do that. "The baby is never willfully destroyed because the mother's life is in danger".

Ironically, even one of the nation's leading abortion practitioners has said that partial-birth abortion is not safe. Nobody is tearing babies apart in late term. "You have to be concerned about causing amniotic fluid embolism or placental abruption if you do that".
