Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, believes that “religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to expand access to abortion.
Hillary Clinton, speaking at the Women in the World Summit on April 23, made the statement: “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
Clinton did not say how she would favor changing those beliefs. Her comments come as congressional Republicans are expected to revive an effort to pass a bill banning abortions after the 20th week of a pregnancy.
Hillary Clinton has a long history of pushing abortion, even on a global scale.advertisement - story continues below
