Kelly Clarkson: Pro-Life Laws ‘Literally Kill’ Women

via Kelly Clarkson Show

Kelly Clarkson and Hillary Clinton criticized the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision upholding a 1864 ban on nearly all abortions.

Clarkson said the ruling shows a backwards movement and can literally kill someone given her own difficult pregnancies where she was hospitalized and worried for her life.

She apologized as she became emotional recounting her experiences.

Clinton called the decision without rape/incest exceptions “horrifying” and “cruel,” saying it endangers women’s lives and autonomy over their own bodies.

“Last week we saw the Arizona Supreme Court uphold a law from 1864 that bans nearly all abortions,” Clarkson said.

Clarkson added forcing someone to carry a pregnancy from rape by a family member is “insane.”

Both lamented around half of states now restricting abortion access in what Clinton called a difficult period for women’s rights.

“Did you ever think in your lifetime that we would see that happen?” Clarkson asked Hillary Clinton. “It’s just insane to me, the thinking that went on in 1864 — it’s a very different world, we know a lot more now — that we’re going backwards.”

Clinton said the Arizona court decision was “horrifying in every way.”

“I feared it would happen, but I hoped it wouldn’t happen,” Clinton added. “And now here we are in the middle of this very difficult period for women in about half the states of our country, who cannot get the care that they need.”

“The old law in Arizona is without exceptions [for rape and incest],” Clinton said. “And the danger to women’s lives as well as to our right to make our own decisions about our bodies and ourselves is so profound. And there’s another element to it, which I find so troubling. I mean, there’s a kind of cruelty to it.”

“I literally asked God, this is a real thing, to just take me and my son in the hospital for the second time, because I was like, ‘It’s the worst thing,’” Clarkson said.

“It was my decision and I’m so glad I did it, I love my babies, but to make someone — and you don’t realize how hard it is,” Clarkson added. “The fact that you would take that away from someone, that can literally kill them. The fact that if they’re raped by their family member and they have to — it’s just like insane to me.”
