Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, is fighting on two Republican political fronts, taking on both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.Because Bush is considered by many to be the eventual Republican presidential nominee, we can expect to see Clinton take jabs at him.
Rubio on the other hand, who is hovering around the middle of the pack in the GOP primary race, is considered as the one candidate who could rise up and defeat Clinton in the 2016 general election, if he gets the GOP nod for president.
Clinton recently bashed Rubio over his position on abortion, and desperately tried to paint the Republican Party as the anti-woman political party.
Here is what Clinton said:
She added this after the Fox News GOP debate:
When one of their [the GOP’s] major candidates, a much younger man, the senator from Florida, says there should be no exceptions for rape and incest, that is as offensive and troubling a comment as you can hear from a major candidate running for the presidency.”
“I know it makes great TV. I think the guy (Trump) went way overboard, offensive, outrageous – pick your adjective – but what Marco Rubio said has as much of an impact in terms of where the Republican Party is today as anybody else on that stage and it is deeply troubling.”
What did Rubio say that was so offensive?
While Clinton questions “where the Republican Party is today” on this issue, where does the former First Lady and the Democratic Party stand on abortion?
“I believe that every single human being is entitled to the protection of our laws, whether they can vote or not. Whether they can speak or not. Whether they can hire a lawyer or not. Whether they have a birth certificate or not. And I think future generations will look back at this history of our country and call us barbarians for murdering millions of babies who we never gave them a chance to live…
“What I have advocated is that we pass law in this country that says all human life at every stage of its development is worthy of protection,” the GOP presidential candidate continued. “In fact, I think that law already exists. It is called the Constitution of the United States.”-Marco Rubio, Fox News Debate (LifeNews)
The Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton support:
- Abortion (The killing of an unborn fetus before it grows to look like you and me)
- Late-term abortions (Abortion after 20 week gestation)
- Aborted baby body part harvesting for cash (Planned Parenthood outed in undercover videos)
Who is out of touch with morality, and who’s position on this issue is “deeply troubling?” This image is what Democrats support.Here is what Clinton said back in 2008 about abortion and the “potential of life” at conception:
“I believe that the potential for life begins at conception. I am a Methodist, as you know. My church has struggled with this issue. In fact, you can look at the Methodist Book of Discipline and see the contradiction and the challenge of trying to sort that very profound question out.
But for me, it is also not only about a potential life; it is about the other lives involved. And, therefore, I have concluded, after great concern and searching my own mind and heart over many years, that our task should be in this pluralistic, diverse life of ours in this nation that individuals must be entrusted to make this profound decision, because the alternative would be such an intrusion of government authority that it would be very difficult to sustain in our kind of open society. And as some of you’ve heard me discuss before, I think abortion should remain legal, but it needs to be safe and rare. “-2008 Democratic Compassion Forum at Messiah College , Apr 13, 2008
Potential of life?
Clinton is saying that a fetus is not living organism, but has the “potential of life.”What?
So, is Clinton saying that a fetus with the “potential of life” is not really living until it is born, regardless of what ultrasounds or images of the fetus may look like, and that somehow the fetus miraculously comes to life the moment it is born?
Expect Rubio and others to take Clinton out to the abortion clinic woodshed on this.
