They’d Rather Make Abortions Illegal Than Reduce Them
And Bill Clinton is correct. But they’re going to attack him for his “temper” anyway. Facing a sign Sunday in Stubenville, Ohio, reading “Abortion Kills Children”, Clinton correctly noted that during his presidency the abortion rate went down, without making it illegal.
Abortions declined between 1993 and 2000 from 1.5 million to 1.31 million, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute. The number continued to decline to 1.21 million through 2005, the last year of available data from AGI.
After a protester shouted another question about abortion, Clinton responded, “We disagree with you. You want to criminalize women and their doctors and we disagree. … If you were really pro-life, you would want to put every doctor and every mother as an accessory to murder in prison. And you won’t say you want to do that because you know that, because you know that you wouldn’t have a lick of political support.”
How “pro-life” is it to lock up doctors who perform abortions and criminalize women who have them?Click here for reuse options!
