View Full Version : Chelsea Clinton: Legalizing Abortion Created Trillions in Economic Growth

Chelsea Clinton recently made strong — if not substantiated — claims about the economic benefits of legalized abortion.
The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton recently spoke at Rise Up for Roe, an abortion rights campaign event created to advocate against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. During her speech, Clinton reportedly said:

It is not a disconnected fact … that American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. … The net, new entrance of women — that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973.

So, I think, whatever it is that people say they care about, I think that you can connect to this issue. Of course, I would hope that they would care about our equal rights and dignity to make our own choices — but, if that is not sufficiently persuasive, hopefully, come some of these other arguments that you’ve expressed so beautifully, will be.

Lousy way to improve the economy !

Her honorary college degrees are a waste of paper and faux sheepskin.

For some reason she reminds me of the advertising slogan of the United Negro College Fund.

Her mind is a terrible waste.

I'm pro choice. I think this kind of reasoning is not needed. For me, it's about who decides what abortions are allowed-the pregnant women or the government. Because there are always going to be abortions. IUDs are technically abortions. Pennyroyal is an herb that can cause a miscarriage and it can be grown anywhere. Rich women will get their doctors to record abortions as regular D & Cs. Plan B causes a fertilized egg to not implant in the uterus, so it is an abortion by the same standard as the IUD is.

Has Kavanaugh gone on record saying he will put an end to roe v. wade, or is this just a false flag created by the left as part of their resist Trump on anything possible?

Designed to raise money for the anti Kavanaugh foundation groups, especially the big wigs who will funnel it to the DNC & DNCC.

I used to be pro-choice. Then I tried to reason through the common arguments against abortion and found that many ended with religion which I cannot support. So I then turned to the arguments in favor of abortion, and I found they all fail on pure science.

When does life begin? ans: about 6 billion years ago with no break right down to us.
What about rape and incest? ans: Rape and incest are already crimes. No other crime is used as an excuse to commit a crime against a third party.
It is unviable tissue. ans: at no other time when a person's life is unviable are we allowed to terminate them without their consent.
It cannot survive without the mother: ans: You are required to render aid in numerous instances to preserve live. A sea captain is required by international law ro render aid to persons adrift etc.
It is her body. ans: Irrelevant, do with your body as you wish, but cet sonsent to damage another's body.
It is her choice. ans: Her choice was to have sex. Pregnancy is a predictable consequence of sex. If I drive, I probably don't want to get in an accident, but I accept it may happen.

There is no pro abortion argument that holds up. If you end the life of another through positive action, that is killing. All the arguments are semantic juggling trying to redefine the new life as somehow not life so you can assuage the guilt naturally associated with killing another human.
