How the Debates Shifted the Abortion Conversation This Election
He described a dilation and extraction procedure—banned in 2003 by President Bush—as when doctors “rip the baby out of the womb on the ninth month, on the final day.” Not only is this factually inaccurate, The topic had already come up during the
Unsurprisingly, Republican candidate Donald Trump affirmed that he would indeed attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade , the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion. What would Trump's next steps be after appointing anti-choice justices to the Supreme Court. “Well, if that would happen because I am pro-life, and I will be appointing pro-life judges, I would think that that will go back to the individual states,” he said. In her response, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton firmly stated that though she will protect Roe v. Wade , abortion access amounts to more than one Supreme Court case and allowing states to regulate abortion out of existence—as Trump said he... “So many states are putting very stringent regulations on women that block them from exercising that choice,” she said. Though the Supreme Court ruled in June to strike down several targeted regulations of abortion provider (TRAP) restrictions designed to shut down abortion clinics at the state level in the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt case, the federal Hyde... In fact, 86 percent have said that, no matter how they feel about abortion, someone shouldn’t be denied health coverage because they’re poor. Despite this, Republicans have promised to codify that (and more stringent anti-abortion restrictions) into permanent law. Wallace then asked Clinton about her stance on abortions during the second trimester, using the stigmatizing, non-medical term “partial-birth abortions," made up by anti-abortion activists. Clinton defended her vote to not ban later abortions without health exceptions by citing the stories of people who’ve had abortions themselves. “I have met with women who, toward the end of their pregnancy, get the worst news one could get that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term, or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy. ” Previously, Clinton was asked about later abortion during a Democratic primary town hall hosted by FOX News. Clinton replied, "I have been on record in favor of a late-pregnancy regulation that would have exceptions for the life and health of the mother. To be clear, not all later abortions are for medical reasons—many are simply because states are passing so many anti-abortion laws that it takes people almost three weeks to get an appointment, not to mention many more weeks to save up for their... In his response, Trump proved that he knows nothing about what actually happens under current law, much less what happens during an abortion. He described a dilation and extraction procedure—banned in 2003 by President Bush—as when doctors “rip the baby out of the womb on the ninth month, on the final day. ” Not only is this factually inaccurate , it’s also a change in stance from 2003, when Trump said he didn’t believe in a ban on later abortion procedures. His description was not the first time Republicans have tried to use gore and hyperbole to stigmatize abortion in this election cycle. Afterwards, anti-abortion activists released a video to support Fiorina’s claims, but experts determined it was of a miscarriage and not an abortion. Asking questions about abortion during a presidential primary isn’t exactly a new topic, but the conversation is clearly changing. Media Matters for America found that though questions on abortion have been asked over the past 56 years, they’ve mostly focused on judicial appointment litmus tests, religion, or perpetuating abortion stigma by equating abortion to murder. None of them focused on how exactly a candidate would increase access to abortion, or even touched on people who have had abortions themselves. While Trump used sensationalized rhetoric to shame those of us who’ve had an abortion, Clinton took a more humble route, explaining that she listened to us and our reasons. While I do take issue with Clinton’s characterization of abortion (specifically later abortion) as one of the “worst possible choices that any woman and her family has to make,” I appreciated that she reinforced how it’s the people actually having...
