Reactions To Supreme Court Abortion Ruling – Hillary Clinton Refers To Unborn As “Child”
WASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) – Public figures across the political spectrum reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
HILLARY CLINTON: “Most Americans believe the decision to have a child is one of the most sacred decisions there is, and that such decisions should remain between patients and their doctors … ”
[Ms. Clinton must have missed the memo — an unborn baby is referred to on the left as a “meaningless blob of tissue,” never as a child. – HH]
DONALD J. TRUMP: “This is following the Constitution, and giving rights back when they should have been given long ago … This brings everything back to the states where it has always belonged.”
NANCY PELOSI: “This cruel ruling is outrageous and heart-wrenching. But make no mistake: the rights of women and all Americans are on the ballot this November.”
MIKE PENCE: “Today, Life Won. By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court of the United States has given the American people a new beginning for life, and I commend the justices in the majority for having the courage of their convictions.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD: “SCOTUS may have just ended our constitutional right to abortion, but know this: Abortion is health care, and you deserve to control your body and your future, no matter what. That hasn’t changed. We can’t and we won’t back down now.”
BARACK OBAMA: “Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues – attacking the essential freedoms of millions of Americans.”
JOE BIDEN: “Today the Supreme Court of the United States expressly took away a constitutional right from the American people that it had already recognized.”
[Mr. Biden neglected to mention the taking away of the former constitutional right to own slaves which was the law of the land for decades longer than Roe v. Wade. – HH]
