Family First Comment: “I think it’s terrible. If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now, you can say that that’s OK and Hillary can say that that’s OK. But it’s not OK with me,” argued Trump.
At the final presidential debate between her and Republican Party nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday, Clinton was asked by Fox News’ Chris Wallace her views on to what extent abortion should be regulated.
“You have been quoted as saying that the fetus has no constitutional rights. You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions. Why?” asked Wallace.
Clinton told those gathered at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas that “Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the life and the health of the mother are taken into account.”
“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make,” said Clinton.
“I do not think the United States government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions. So you can regulate if you are doing so with the life and the health of the mother taken into account.”
The health of the mother exception is essentially a loophole because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the abortionist can decide what qualifies as good for the health of the mother.
Trump, who said earlier in the debate he would appoint pro-life judges to the United States Supreme Court, pressed Clinton about her position on abortion.
“I think it’s terrible. If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now, you can say that that’s OK and Hillary can say that that’s OK. But it’s not OK with me,” argued Trump.
Clinton responded to Trump’s criticism by stating that it was “scare rhetoric” and restated that “I do not believe the government should be making it.”
Conservatives have argued that Clinton is an extremist on abortion, with her campaign platform opposing a late term abortion ban and supporting the removal of the Hyde Amendment, which limits federal funding of abortion.

An Abortion Rights Advocate Says He Lied About Procedure
New York Times 26 February 1997
A prominent member of the abortion rights movement said today that he lied in earlier statements when he said a controversial form of late-term abortion is rare and performed primarily to save the lives or fertility of women bearing severely malformed babies.
He now says the procedure is performed far more often than his colleagues have acknowledged, and on healthy women bearing healthy fetuses.
Ron Fitzsimmons, the executive director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, said he intentionally misled in previous remarks about the procedure, called intact dilation and evacuation by those who believe it should remain legal and ”partial-birth abortion” by those who believe it should be outlawed, because he feared that the truth would damage the cause of abortion rights.
But he is now convinced, he said, that the issue of whether the procedure remains legal, like the overall debate about abortion, must be based on the truth.
