The Hyde Amendment is a 40-year-old policy that blocks Medicaid health care plans from covering abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or if the mother's life is endangered.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, as do many Democrats in Congress.
In May 2015, the U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from excruciating late abortions. Clinton attacked bill to protect unborn babies from painful late abortions. In addition, Clinton issued a statement slamming House lawmakers for advancing the bill.
Clinton denies the science of fetal pain. This high point in child development forms the basis for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Hillary Clinton chose to ignore the truth of human biology, claiming the bill is “not based on sound science” per a statement by her campaign.
Hillary Clinton enjoys significant monetary backing from employees of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. She in return enthusiastically supports Planned Parenthood.
In a new interview on April 3, 2016, pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton could not have made her radical abortion views more apparent. Clinton said unborn children DO NOT have any Constitutional rights, which would consist of the right to life.
