Abortion should be ‘legal, safe and rare’

13 Apr, 2008

Clinton says she believes abortion should remain a legal option but should be safe and rare. She adds that making alternatives acceptable will lower the number of abortions performed.

I think abortion should remain legal, but it needs to be safe and rare. And I have spent many years now, as a private citizen, as First Lady, and now as senator, trying to make it rare, trying to create the conditions where women have other choices. I have supported adoption, foster care. I helped to create the campaign against teenage pregnancy, which fulfilled our original goal 10 years ago of reducing teenage pregnancies by about a third. And I think we have to do even more.
