Fact-checking: Yes, Hillary Support Unrestricted Abortions

Before the lights were out on Wednesday night's final presidential debate stage, partisan groups were frantically spinning candidates' words and "fact-checking" candidates' claims.

It has become common for "fact-checking" groups to arbitrate what is true and what is false. But the "fact-checkers" themselves are often biased and do not always present the truth.

Such is the case with some "fact-checking" outlets Thursday claiming that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lied Wednesday night when he said Democratic rival Hillary Clinton supports unrestricted abortion throughout pregnancy. . . .

But the fact is, abortion until the moment of birth is legal in the United States. Perfectly healthy babies at seven, eight, and nine month’s gestation are aborted every day.

Roe v. Wade was accompanied by a simultaneous joint decision, Doe v. Bolton, which the U.S. Supreme Court said must be enforced together. In Roe, the court ruled that unrestricted abortion-on-demand is legal up to "viability," and after viability in cases of rape, incest, or the "health" of the mother. In Doe, the court ruled that the mother's "health" must be defined so broadly as to include mental state and disposition.

The nation's highest court ruled that as far as legally obtaining a late-term abortion, "health" must encompass “physical, emotional, psychological, familial … well-being.” This is what allows any abortionist to legally kill any baby right up to her due date.

Some abortionists sign off on girls getting late-term abortions for “mental health reasons.”

It is this joint Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy, and essentially for any reason. And Clinton has repeatedly stated her absolute, unwavering devotion to that Supreme Court ruling.

While for the record, seven states have no age restriction on abortion, the remaining 43 states have exceptions that can and are being used by abortionists to legally justify abortion at any gestation throughout the nine months of pregnancy.

The federal government admits this. At its peak year, 30,000 late-term abortions occurred in the U.S., the Center for Disease Control reported. More recently, the CDC reported 1.3 percent of annual abortions — 13,000 viable babies — were late term.

Trump is, tragically, right: Abortion is legal in the U.S. right up until the moment of birth.

As for Clinton's support of unrestricted abortion, that is a matter of record. She has repeatedly stated her unequivocal support for Roe and abortion “rights.” She has said preborn babies do not have the right to life. . . . Clinton's Democratic platform is blatantly pro-abortion, not only opposing any restrictions on abortion but supporting taxpayer-funded abortion both nationally and worldwide. She seeks to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which disallows government funding of abortion. . . . Read More
