Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” on CBS if she supported a federal limit on abortion at any stage of pregnancy.
The Democratic presidential hopeful declared in some cases late-term abortions are necessary and should be free from government interference.
“This is one of those really painful questions that people raise and obviously it’s really emotional. I think that the kind of late term abortions that take place are because of medical necessity. And therefore, I would hate to see the government interfering with that decision. I think that, again, this gets back to whether you respect a woman’s right to choose or not and I think that is what this whole argument once again is about.”
