Hillary: You Can Be Both Pro-Life and Feminist

It is possible to be both pro-life and a feminist, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Tuesday.

In an appearance on "The View," Clinton said she believes the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision gives the authority of whether to have an abortion to women, but, she added, she has "no problem with people making the case, look, here's the best choice or here's a better choice."

Clinton, referring to GOP front-runner Donald Trump's recent statement that women or doctors should face legal consequences if abortion becomes illegal, which he later walked back, said that she does have a problem "when the government gets involved or when you say it's illegal and women and doctors are criminals."

Co-host Candace Cameron Bure asked Clinton if she thinks a person could be both pro-life and a feminist.

"Yes, I do, absolutely," Clinton replied.

"They're not mutually exclusive?" the conservative Bure asked.

"No," Clinton replied. "I respect the opinions and beliefs of every woman. The reason why being pro-choice is the right way to go is because it is a choice, and hopefully a choice that is rooted in the thoughtfulness and the care that women bring to this decision. So of course you can be a feminist and be pro-life."

The comment drew fire from Mediaite's Tommy Christopher, who said the pro-life movement is political in nature and aimed at the "government getting involved and making the choice for you."

Further, Christopher argued, "even accepting their 'pro-life' nomenclature is a tacit assertion that pro-choice people are somehow not pro-life."

Critics on Twitter didn't care for it either:



It's the second time this week Clinton has faced fire from her own base over abortion. She was blasted by a Planned Parenthood official after using the terms "unborn person" and "child" for a fetus on "Meet the Press" Sunday.
