Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said during an interview Sunday that an “unborn person” does not have rights when asked about her abortion stance and whether she believes an “unborn child” has constitutional protections.
“Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support.
“It doesn’t mean that you don’t do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does not include sacrificing the woman’s right to make decisions,” Clinton explained.
Abortion emerged as a central theme in the 2016 presidential race last week when GOP front-runner Donald Trump said a woman who undergoes an abortion should be punished if the procedure is outlawed. He later said only the doctor should be punished in such a scenario.
