‘Deeply Religious’ Chelsea Clinton Says Ending Legal Abortion ‘Unchristian’

During a SiriusXM Town Hall, Chelsea Clinton argued access to abortion is fundamental for women’s rights and said returning to a pre-Roe v. Wade America is “unchristian.”

“And when I think about all of the statistics — that are painful — of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that,” Clinton argued.

She continued, “That’s unconscionable to me… and also I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person it’s also unchristian to me.”

“I’ve had the temerity, as the Supreme Court did in 1992 in Planned Parenthood V. Casey, to point out that our ability to participate fully in our society, including economically, hinges on our ability to be able to make choices for our bodies and our families,” Chelsea concluded.
