A few months ago I proposed eight questions that Hillary Clinton should be asked about abortion. This will surprise you, but nobody asked her any of them. I get the sneaking suspicion that the major networks and their anchors aren’t even listening to me sometimes. Fine.
But I wasn’t the only one who thought Hillary should be getting more questions on abortion. As it turns out, the Heir Apparent herself made a little scene at the Democratic debate last week when she called out the moderators for not asking enough abortion-related questions of her and Bernie Sanders during the debates.
Of course, this came on the heels of her infamous interview on Meet the Press, during which she made the grave and incomprehensible error of referring to an unborn person as a “person” and an unborn child as a “child.” Well, she caught it pretty good from her devoted followers in the genocide-for-profit crowd, including a stern Twittering-to from some of the folks at Planned Parts R’ Us, or whatever that outfit is called.
Because when it’s a “fetus” it only has hands and feet and a face and a beating heart, but once you call it a “person” it also has something else according to the U.S. Constitution – the right to life.
And that would make for a dismal quarterly outlook indeed.
So yeah, of course Hillary wants more opportunities now during the debates to talk about abortion, so she can reassure her legions (did they ever seriously doubt her devotion to the cause?) by demonstrating her bona fides as the foremost supporter of the tiny corpse industry.
So she wants more questions. Sigh, okay.
2. You also called it a “child.” LOL. But seriously, if it’s a child, do you support a woman’s right to terminate her children? Up to what age?
3. You also recently called abortion “a difficult decision.” Why is it difficult?
4. Which side do you support in the Little Sisters of the Poor case involving coverage for contraception? Would you support a law requiring employers like the Little Sisters of the Poor to take part in insurance programs that provide coverage for abortion?
5. Do you believe that free access to abortion is essential for protecting women’s health?
6. The ACLU recently brought a lawsuit to require Catholic hospitals to perform abortions. Should Catholic hospitals be required to provide abortion services? Will you here and now affirm their right to deny abortion services if it violates their conscience?
7. Should doctors who refuse to perform abortions be punished?
So that’s fifteen questions for you Hillary, if you include these. Answer away.
