FLASHBACK: Bill Clinton on veto of partial-birth abortion: ‘Hillary and I prayed about it’

November 7, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Former President Bill Clinton said one of the reasons he vetoed a partial-birth abortion ban in the late 1990s was because "Hillary and I prayed about it, and it's the right thing to do."

"I came to understand that this is a rarely used procedure, justifiable as a last resort when doctors judge it necessary to save a woman's life or to avert serious health consequences to her," Clinton said of partial-birth abortion.

In 2003, then-Senator Hillary Clinton said banning partial-birth abortion is "extreme, deceptive, and unconstitutional." She then admitted that abortion does involve a living "child," adding, "I believe that forcing a woman to carry a child whom she knows will die is an assault, not only on her health — her mental health — but on our values as a nation and a free people."

Bill's quote on praying about partial-birth abortion is often cited in accounts of his infamous veto. 

Do you think Bill is extreme to say that prayer led him to support abortionists delivering a baby except for her head, stabbing scissors into the base of her skull, and sucking her brains out?

Well, Hillary wants you to pay for it.
