A November 2014 poll conducted by The Polling Company found that just 13% of Americans believe abortion should be legal for any reason and essentially at any time during pregnancy. In other words, just 13% of Americans agree with Hillary Clinton on abortion.
While campaigning for the presidency, Hillary Clinton has called state efforts to deal with unborn pain, dismemberment abortions, informed consent, parental involvement, and webcam abortions “a dangerous trend.”
In April 2015, she said that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” before abortion would be legal everywhere in the world.
In May 2015, she decried the U.S. House for passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which sought to protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from excruciating dismemberment abortions. She claimed (falsely) that the idea that unborn babies experience pain is founded on bad science.
In August 2015, she likened pro-life activists to terrorists.
This month, on CNN, she said that easy, legal access to abortion “goes to the heart of who we are as women, our rights, our autonomy, our ability to make our own decisions, and we need to be talking about that and defending Planned Parenthood.”
