“Reproductive rights is central to women’s rights and women’s health,” Clinton wrote in “What Happened.”
In Hillary Clinton’s new book “What Happened,” she blasts Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and progressives for saying that the Democratic Party should be open to supporting pro-life candidates.
“After the election, Bernie suggested that Democrats should be open to nominating and supporting candidates who are anti-choice. Other topics, such as economic justice, are sacrosanct, but apparently women’s health is not,” Clinton writes. “I don’t mean to criticize only Bernie here – a lot of progressives join him in thinking that reproductive rights are negotiable.”
Clinton goes on to write that she chose Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) to be her running mate because he was “personally opposed to abortion … but supportive of women’s rights as a matter of law and policy.”
“But when personal views on abortion become public actions-votes on legislation or judges or funding that erode women’s rights that’s a different matter. We have to remain a big tent, but a big tent is only as strong as the poles that hold it up. Reproductive rights is central to women’s rights and women’s health, and it’s one of the most important tent poles we’ve got. And remember: it’s a constitutional right as defined in Roe v. Wade.”
