President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, fired back, “Hillary Clinton wants to make it easier to kill a defenseless unborn human being than to purchase a gun?”

@HillaryClinton thinks it should be easier to kill an unborn baby, than purchase a rifle.
🇺🇸 Declaration of Independence says Life is an unalienable Right.
🇺🇸 U.S. Constitution protects guns to prevent tyranny.
🇨🇳Hillary’s statement is un-American, anti-American & evil. ☭ ☭ ☭ https://t.co/5wZHvL1SMr

Actually, killing unborn babies should be more difficult because babies are not able to use rifles for self-defense.

Do you need a 3 day FBI waiting period to get an abortion? Didn't think so.

On Tuesday, Clinton told “CBS Mornings” she was not surprised to hear that the court overturned Roe v. Wade.
“I think that was the goal of packing the Court with justices who were on the record for many years of being against women’s constitutional rights to make decisions about our own bodies. I was deeply sorry that it actually happened,” she said.
Clinton added, “But now that it has happened, I think everybody understands that this is not necessarily the only effort that we’re going to see this Court undertake to turn back the clock on civil rights.”
She also commented on a concurring opinion written separately by Justice Clarence Thomas.
He suggested reevaluating other cases protecting contraceptive access, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriages.
Clinton went to law school with Thomas and said he is a “person of grievance.”
She explained, “He has signaled in the past to lower courts, to state legislatures, ‘Find cases. Pass laws. Get them up. I may not win the first, the second, or the third time, but we’re going to keep at it.'”
Additionally, Clinton told the show, “The thing that is, well, there are so many things about it that are deeply distressing but women are going to die.”
The former secretary of state’s hope is that this will “wake up a lot of Americans.”
