Hillary Clinton on Abortion

Clinton is pro-choice and supportive of abortion at any stage of pregnancy.

JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you about those Planned Parenthood videos. Have you watched them?

HILLARY CLINTON: I’ve seen excerpts from them and I’ve certainly read about them and what I am troubled by are the misleading, inaccurate, allegations about them that we heard from republicans at their debate. This is really an attack on Planned Parenthood which provides a lot of health services from cancer screenings, to contraceptive services to so many other needs women have. And to shut down the government, which some republicans are advocating, over funding for Planned Parenthood which takes care of millions of women’s health needs is just the height of irresponsibility.

DICKERSON: The policy debate this has turned into. What was your reaction just when you watched them?

CLINTON: Well look, as Planned Parenthood has said these were misleadingly edited. They were intentionally taken out of context. The fact is if we want to have a debate in this country about whether we should continue using, doing, fetal research then it’s not only Planned Parenthood that should be involved in that debate. All of the experts, all of the scientists, all of the research institutions, everybody who is looking for cures to, Parkinson’s for example, should be asked should we continue this. But so far as I am aware what they did despite the way it was portrayed is within the laws that were set up for this.


(1:07 – 3:14)
DICKERSON: This week the senate’s going to vote to impose a federal ban on late term abortions. Do you support a federal limit on abortion at any stage of pregnancy?

CLINTON: This is one of those really painful questions that people raise and obviously it’s really emotional. I think that the kind of late term abortions that take place are because of medical necessity and therefore I would hate to see the government interfering with that decision. I think that again this gets back to whether you respect a woman’s right to choose or not and I think that’s what this whole argument once again is about.
