Hillary Clinton on Abortion


Every woman should have the right to choose whether to have an abortion. Because such a choice is difficult for women, there should be a means of support for those who do choose abortions and support for those who make alternative decisions. Such support includes reaching out to young people and giving them the tools to make informed decisions so that abortion does not have to be a choice and abortions would be rare. Adoptions need to be easier for people to pursue. The pro-life and pro-choice factions should come together and reach some sort of common ground. Any judicial appointees will need to uphold the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade.
