Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that women can be both pro-life and feminists.
When asked by co-host Candace Cameron-Bure on ABC's "The View" Tuesday if she think it's possible to be a feminist and identify as pro-life, Clinton said "absolutely" and explained why.
"Yes I do, absolutely," Clinton said.
"They're not mutually exclusive?" Cameron-Bure asked.
"No, absolutely," she said. "Look, I've been, and I'm sure that Whoopi [Goldberg] and Joy [Behar] have been, we've been in these conversations now for, what, 40-plus years, right? And I respect the opinions and beliefs of every woman.
"The reason why being pro-choice is the right way to go is because it is a choice and hopefully a choice that is rooted in the thoughtfulness and the care that the women bring to this decision," the former secretary of state added. "So, of course, you can be a feminist and be pro-life."
The comments come after Clinton — who is pro-choice — said to a slew of criticism that a fetus is an "unborn person" who "doesn't have constitutional rights."
