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.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
