Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke to executives at Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider, on Friday, about the supposed constitutional right to have an abortion.
“Thank you for being there for every woman, in every state,” Clinton told Planned Parenthood fans. “Who has to miss work, drive hundreds of miles sometimes, endure cruel, unnecessary waiting periods, walk past angry protesters to exercise her constitutional right to safe and legal abortion.”
But, just five days before Clinton proclaimed that abortion was protected under the constitution, she told ABC News that the Second Amendment may or may not be a right and if it is, it needs to be heavily regulated.
“If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right is subject to reasonable regulations,” Clinton said. “And what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic where some of our earliest laws that were passed were about firearms.”
“I think it’s important to recognize that reasonable people can say, as I do, responsible gun owners have a right, I have no objection to that,” Clinton continued. “But the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory responsible actions to protect everyone else.”
