Sobering reflections on President’s Day: What if Hillary Clinton had won?

NRL Political Director Karen Cross provides a wonderful overview of the many pro-life contributions made by President Donald Trump in his first three years.  As Karen writes in her opening sentences, “On this Presidents’ Day we celebrate you, Mr. President! Pro-life President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history. Ever.”

The flip-side—the alternate history version—is what if Hillary Clinton had won. Alternate History, in its simplest form, is just a “what if?” How would the stream of history have been altered had there been a different outcome to a particularly historic event?

Let’s consider on this President’s Day, February 17, 2020, where would we be if pro-abortion Hillary Clinton had won the presidency in 2016? President Trump’s margins in a number of key states were paper-thin, so surely that could have come to pass. Had she won…

We would’ve been told unceasingly that we’ve finally cracked the ultimate glass ceiling and now we are obliged to make sure that Hillary Clinton’s presidency is a success. To do otherwise would be labeled sexist, if not worse.

There would be no non-stop opposition fed, nurture, and egged on by almost the entirety of the Media Elite. Just a celebration that the “correct” candidate had won.

“President Hillary Clinton” would have nominated a replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, someone whose judicial philosophy the late Justice Antonin Scalia whose judicial philosophy would have been as far away from Scalia’s originalism and textualism as the East is from the West. Likewise in finding a replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. You could rest assured that remolding society over (and over) would be the bedrock viewpoint of any Clinton nominee.

Whereas President Trump’s choice for the High Court were federal Judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. 

But, we would be told, Democrats in general, a President Hillary Clinton in particular, were “owed” the right to appoint Ruth Bader Ginsburg clones to the nation’s highest court, so just get over it.

Mr. Trump’s Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy is a significant expansion of President Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City Policy.  By contrast, funding abortion at home and abroad would be a major presidential initiative under a President Hillary Clinton, just as the relentless determination to reverse the decline in the number of abortions would be near the top of her agenda. 

Pro-abortionists never flatly admit this, but this—more and more and more dead babies– is the inevitable result of every policy they promote.

In many ways and for many years, Hillary Clinton represented the crucial nexus of the worldwide campaign to erase any and all protective abortion statutes around the world.

Bills to defund Planned Parenthood, pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act would be worked on in the sure knowledge that Mr. Trump would sign them, should they pass, and a President Hillary Clinton would veto them.

And we have just scratched the surfaces of the “what ifs?”

We are now less than nine months away from the contest to determine whether pro-life President Trump wins a second term or is replaced by one of a myriad of pro-abortion Democrats. The hysteria meter is so revved up there is a movement to support former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  But had Mrs. Clinton prevailed in 2016, there would be no intra-party squabbles. She would be her party’s candidate in 2020.

Clearly, preserving abortion is not the only reason for the onslaught against President Trump, but also no less clear, it is a major one. The Democrat Party is in the throes of the Planned Parenthoods and the NARALs and the EMILY Lists and many of the party’s major donors vibrate in sympathetic harmony with the Abortion Industry insatiable lust for killing.

When you reflect on the difference all your efforts made, remember for Hillary Clinton and her ilk there can never, ever be enough abortions.
