Hillary Clinton: Arizona Abortion Ban Is ‘Horrifying in Every Way’

Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has weighed in on the “cruelty” of Arizona’s recently reinstated abortion ban.

As Slay News reported, the Arizona Supreme Court recently upheld a historically stringent 1864 law that makes almost all forms of abortion illegal in the state.

The ruling means the old statute now takes precedence over a more recent 15-week abortion law.

This antiquated law, originally enacted in 1864, only permits abortions to save the mother’s life.

Violators could face a prison sentence ranging from two to five years.

The recent court verdict was limited to the law’s enforceability, not its constitutionality, leaving room for further legal evaluations.

During a Monday appearance on NBC’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Clinton argued that Arizona’s abortion ban is “cruelty toward women.”

“It is horrifying in every way,” Clinton blasted.

“You know, I feared it would happen, but I hoped it wouldn’t happen, and now here we are in the middle of this very difficult period for women in about half the states of our country.”

“There’s another element to it which I find so troubling,” she continued.

“I mean, there’s a kind of cruelty to it.

“No exceptions for rape, incest, I mean, really?

“There’s a cruelty toward women, toward women’s lives.”

Clinton continued by arguing that the answer is to vote for Democrats in the upcoming elections.

“I want to vote in a way that’s going to make life better for the maximum number of people and not try to impose your views on the rest of us,” she told viewers.

“Whatever you care about, voting is your superpower.

“It may not seem like it, but it really is.”

Clinton then attempted a not-so-subtle segue into a plug for a musical she’s working on.

“That’s what we are trying to say in this musical that I’m helping to produce called Suffs about how women got the right to vote,” she added.

WATCH:

This ruling in Arizona sparked immediate political action among state legislators.

However, GOP leaders have now opted to delay a decision to repeal the statute.

Arizona Republicans cited the need for comprehensive review and community consultation.

Republicans in both the Arizona House of Representatives and Senate responded to the court ruling by stalling legislative efforts to repeal the ban.

This move came amidst requests for more thorough consideration of the ruling’s implications.

Republican state Rep. Matt Gress initially propelled the repeal effort.

However, Gress eventually sided with adjourning the session before any vote could transpire.

Meanwhile, national figures have weighed in on the issue.

President Donald Trump regarded the enforcement of such an outdated law as overly stringent but expressed optimism about a swift resolution.

Vice President Kamala Harris, meanwhile, announced her plans to visit Arizona to advocate for “reproductive health.”
