Clinton Argues She is More Pro-Abortion than Obama

When did it become a good thing to be in favor of killing innocent babies?

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton criticizes rival Barack Obama’s record on abortion rights in a mailing sent to New Hampshire voters.

The mailer says that seven times during his time in the Illinois state Senate, Obama declined to take a position on abortion bills, while Clinton has been a defender of abortion rights.

During his eight years in the legislature, Obama cast a number of votes on abortion and received a 100 percent rating from the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council for his support of abortion rights, family planning services and health insurance coverage for female contraceptives. He voted against requiring medical care for aborted babies who survive, a vote that especially riled abortion opponents.

He also joined other state Democrats in voting present on some bills.

During the Iowa campaign, the Clinton campaign criticized Obama’s position on health care in Iowa. But she is taking a different approach in New Hampshire.

“A woman’s right to choose,” the mailing says on the front, then flips to the back, “demands a leader who will stand up and protect it.”

It says Clinton has a record of fighting “far-right Republicans” to defend abortion rights, while Obama has been “unwilling to take a stand on choice.”

“Seven times he had the opportunity to stand up against Republican anti-choice legislation in the Illinois state Senate,” it says. “Seven times he voted present – not yes or no, but present. Being there is not enough to protect choice.
