(Associated Press) Democratic presidential candidate and senator Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) said Thursday that individuals who are pro-life should not be judges.
"These are personal decisions. They are health care decisions. They are economic decisions. They are moral decisions. A woman has a right to make all those decisions," Gillibrand said in an interview on New Hampshire Public Radio. "And if you are telling me today, that women in America don't have that right. I think you are so backward-looking that those judges and justices are not the type of people we should be appointing because it is too backward-looking."
Gillibrand sparked controversy this week when she compared pro-life beliefs to racism and suggested the pro-life viewpoint is "not acceptable" during an interview with the Des Moines Register.
