Democrat presidential candidate said something during an interview with NBC'S Chuck Todd on Sunday that has Planned Parenthood furious with her and pro-life advocates saying "See, I told you so."
According to The Washington Times, Hillary told Todd, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Now that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support.”
Now while a statement like that would normally anger pro-life advocates the most, her usages of the terms "unborn person" and "child" appeared to make pro-abortion Planned Parenthood the most upset. Referring an an unborn baby as anything but a "fetus" or "embryo" hugely violates their strict recommendations for speech so as to avoid any hint of attaching personhood to the unborn.
One of many phrases from the International Planned Parenthood Foundation states, "‘Abort a child’ is medically inaccurate, as the fetus is not yet a child. Terminate’ a pregnancy is commonly used, however some people prefer to avoid this as terminate may have negative connotations (e.g., ‘terminator or assassinate’) for some people.”
Conservative and religious leaders, such as the Catholic Association's Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, says Hillary's slip-up reveals how difficult it is to make abortion seem natural and rational.
