The phrase “for the children” often is used to evoke sympathy for a cause.
And for good reason. Inherent in the statement is the recognition that children are valuable and society has a duty to nurture and protect them.
But in January, Democrat leader Hillary Clinton used the phrase in the most heinous way, asserting that politicians need to “continue the fight” to protect abortion “for our grandkids.”
The WIBC Mock ‘n’ Rob Show in Indiana exposed Clinton’s comments Tuesday, noting how she even used religious language to advocate for abortions for her future great-grandchildren.

“Interesting Fact: It’s nearly impossible to live up to your ‘God-given potential’ when a doctor intentionally ends your life while you’re still in the womb,” the show hosts responded.
Clinton, a former presidential candidate and former secretary of state, made the comment while speaking with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on a recent podcast. Both women are pro-abortion Democrats who say they are Christians.
On the podcast, Pelosi slammed pro-life Americans as “hypocrites” and sell-outs because they prioritize the issue at the voting booth.
“But they were willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue,” she said, asserting that she is the better person “because many of these people, of course, are not having 13 children.”
Clinton agreed with Pelosi’s comments and then brought up their grandchildren as a reason for their abortion advocacy.
Between Pelosi’s nine grandchildren and Clinton’s three, “we have a dozen perfectly good reasons to get up every day and continue the fight for the future we want,” Clinton said.
Clinton said her abortion advocacy is “not just for our grandkids, but really for every child to live up to his or her God-given potential. That’s what it’s all about.”
Yet, Clinton directly contradicts her stated purpose by supporting the killing of unborn babies in abortions. A child has no chance to reach their potential if their life is violently destroyed in an abortion. Every year, about 1 million unborn children are aborted, and more than 62 million have been since Roe v. Wade in 1973.
Those unfathomably high numbers represent a mass of “God-given potential” that has been destroyed unnecessarily by abortions. Tragically, Clinton and Pelosi are advocating for this destruction of human life to continue while claiming that they are doing the opposite.
