Stuff that matters

Debate Watch

It’s 2016, and we’re arguing about the constitutional validity of Roe v. Wade.

In case you were wondering how the presidential candidates were feeling about a woman’s constitutional right to control her reproductive fate at this stage of the longest, most hellish election season we’ve ever known:

clinton-memeeeee

Hillary Clinton: “Donald has said he’s in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood. He even supported shutting the government down to defund Planned Parenthood. I will defend Planned Parenthood. I will defend Roe v. Wade and I will defend women’s rights to make their own health care decisions.”

In response to the question of whether to overturn Roe v. Wade:

Donald Trump: “If we put another two or perhaps three justices on [the Supreme Court], that will happen. And that will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I’m putting pro-life justices on the court.”

There you have it.
