Five women who underwent a certain type of abortion procedure which was usually performed late in a pregnancy talked about why it was necessary for them and their fetuses. Then President Bill Clinton explained why he vetoed this legislation. In his remarks he stated: “I will say again, if the Congress really wants to act out of a sincere concern that some of these things are done, which are wrong, in casual ways, then if they will meet my standards to protect these families, they could pass a bill that I would sign tomorrow. But these people have no business being made into political pawns. As I said, and as they said, they never had a choice. This affects staunchly pro-life families as well as people that are pro- choice. They never had a choice. And I cannot in good conscience see their lives damaged and their potential to build good, strong families damaged.” close
