Chuck Todd to Hillary Clinton: "When Or If Does An Unborn Child Have Constitutional Rights?"


Hillary Clinton is asked about her position on abortion and whether she believes an unborn child has constitutional rights by Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd. Earlier in the interview on this Sunday's broadcast of the NBC public affairs program Clinton called abortion a constitutional protection.

"When or if does an unborn child have constitutional rights?" NBC's Todd asked Clinton.

"Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists," Clinton answered. "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."

"It doesn't mean that you don't do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does not include sacrificing the woman's right to make decisions," Clinton explained.
