“Secretary Clinton’s comment that an ‘unborn person’ doesn’t have constitutional rights was strikingly callous. My message to Mrs. Clinton is — it’s an unborn child. The analytical coldness with which she dismissed rights of unborn children reveals a type of hardened core that shocks the conscience. Further, abortion restrictions are in place precisely because an unborn child does have constitutional rights. Secretary Clinton, a trained attorney, should know the law. Her comment reveals a mindset that lacks any compassion for unborn children and may signal an intention to use executive action to block even minimal protections of life at its most vulnerable stage.”
