Do the beliefs of Hillary Clinton's church translate into the personal beliefs of
Hillary Clinton? They do, but not completely. The beliefs of her church mirror Hillary Clinton's
personal beliefs on most but not all key issues.
On homosexuality, for example, Hillary Clinton's
beliefs match her church's beliefs (see
Hillary Clinton religion). Hillary Clinton is an ardent supporter of
homosexuals despite clear
against homosexuality. In fact, Hillary Clinton was the first First Lady to march in a
gay pride parade.
"We oppose the use of late-term abortion known as
dilation and extraction (partial-birth abortion) and call for the end of this
practice except when the physical life of the mother is in danger and no other
medical procedure is available..."
During her October 8, 2000 US Senate candidate debate in New York, Hillary Clinton said:
have said many times that I can support a ban on late-term abortions, including
partial-birth abortions, so long as the health and life of the mother is
protected. I’ve met women who faced this heart-wrenching decision toward the end
of a pregnancy. Of course it’s a horrible procedure. No one would argue with
that. But if your life is at stake, if your health is at stake, if the potential
for having any more children is at stake, this must be a woman’s choice."
The distinction between the mother's "life"
and "health" is quite significant.
