Clinton blasts Indiana law that protects babies from abortions based on sex or disability

Understandably, most of the media attention today on presidential primaries in Indiana has focused on the Republican side of the ledger where front-runner Donald Trump aims to extend his sizable lead over pro-life Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

And although pro-abortion Hillary Clinton has a commanding, indeed probably insuperable delegate lead over pro-abortion Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, she is hoping to avoid a loss to her lone competitor.

I had meant to mention a comment Mrs. Clinton made last weekend, just hours after the ACLU predictably challenged a comprehensive Indiana law which, among other provisions, protects unborn babies who would be aborted because of a disability or because of their gender (almost always girls).

“I will defend a woman’s right to make her own health-care decisions,” Clinton said to a few hundred supporters at a gathering . “I’ll tell ya, I’ll defend Planned Parenthood against these attacks. And I commend the women of this state, young and old, for standing up against this governor and this legislature.”

The Washington Post’s David Weigel noted

She did not mention the details of the legislation, House Bill 1337, which bans abortions for several factors not deemed life-threatening.

Why would she? Anything that offers even the tiniest protection to unborn babies must be opposed by Planned Parenthood’s much preferred candidate.
