Hillary Says Unborn Children Have No Constitutional Rights [VIDEO]

At least Hillary Clinton is consistent. She has repeatedly argued that, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights. Under our laws currently, that is not something that exists.”

Nothing could be further from the truth. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights all value protecting a person’s right to life– both in and out of the womb.

Not to mention the fact that babies are protected by the 5th and 14th Amendments.

Section 1 of the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment reads:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

There is no legal, constitutional basis for abortion. Even legal scholars attest Roe v. Wade’s illegality.

Common law prohibits abortion. As did America’s Founding Fathers.

More important, even when the Supreme Court rules against the Constitution, these justices do not have the final legal word on the matter. They do not create law. Only the state legislatures and Congress, and voters, can make laws. The Separation of Powers exists for a reason, and each branch is delegated limited responsibilities.

Hillary Clinton may claim to know the law, even graduated from law school, but it is doubtful if she has ever read the Constitution.
