Perhaps that conspiracy is real, but Mrs. Clinton's evidence demonstrating such a conspiracy has been notably lacking in substance.
In contrast, this election cycle evidences a vast anti-life, pro-abortion conspiracy and the substantive evidence continues to mount. This conspiracy involves painting the victim of rape as needing an abortion so she might put the brutal attack behind her and move on in her life with absolutely no regrets or problems.
Consider the story of a 10-year-old Paraguayan girl. Raped by her step-father, she gave birth to a child last week.
Then, there's Lianna. In "El aborto nunca es necesario," she shares a story of being raped as a 12-year-old, and choosing life for her unborn baby.
A: Paraguay protects life in all circumstances and prohibits abortion without exception.
Some evidence of this conspiracy:
Listen very carefully to what this candidate for the 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican party has to say about Paraguayan law:
The problem? This selective editing job of the headline intentionally excludes Huckabee acknowledging prior to making that particular statement that rape is a horrible thing.
Rape is horrible and so is abortion. Abortion doesn't make a rape "better," it doesn't "solve" a rape, and it doesn't make a rape "disappear." An abortion takes something "horrible" and renders it "horrible to the second degree."
That's not what the vast anti-life, pro-abortion conspirators want people to believe. So they cleverly edit out statements that don't suit their agenda and present what was said that does suit their agenda. Why? Their goal is to sway those who may believe that abortion is immoral but feel compassion for the victim of rape to believe that providing an abortion is the "caring" thing to do.
Mike Huckabee is 100% correct—no abortion under any circumstance—and is courageous in standing up for both the victim as well as the child who has been conceived, even in an act of violence. That is "caring," "caring to the second degree."
The vast anti-life, pro-abortion conspirators always point to rape as a reason for a "right" to abortion. That's "horrible," "horrible to the second degree." They don't want people to consider the possiblity that in choosing life--even in the midst of horrific, unconsciounable circumstances--there will come a blessing...life. No, all they want the "undecideds" to consider is the victim's pain and heartache and to choose death.
Jesus called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said:
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. (Mark 8:34-35)

Santiago, Chile, Aug 16, 2013 / 12:12 pm (CNA/EWTN News)- Two twin brothers in Chile say that their mother’s determination in protecting them from abortion despite the advice of doctors helped to foster their vocations to the priesthood.
“How can I not defend the God of life?” said Fr. Paulo Lizama. “This event strengthened my vocation and gave it a specific vitality, and therefore, I was able to give myself existentially to what I believe.”
“I am convinced of what I believe, of what I am and of what I speak, clearly by the grace of God,” he told CNA.
Fr. Paulo and his identical twin brother, Fr. Felipe, were born in 1984 in the Chilean town of Lagunillas de Casablanca.
Before discovering her pregnancy, their mother, Rosa Silva, had exposed herself to x-rays while performing her duties as a paramedic. Consequently, after confirming the pregnancy, her doctor conducted ultrasounds and informed her that he had seen “something strange” in the image.
“The baby has three arms and its feet are sort of entangled. It also has two heads,” he told her.
Although abortion for “therapeutic” reasons was legal at the time in Chile and doctors told her that her life was in danger, Rosa opposed the idea and said she would accept whatever God would send her.
“The Lord worked and produced a twin pregnancy. I don’t know if the doctors were wrong or what,” Fr. Felipe said.
“I always think with special affection and tenderness in the heart of my mother who gave her life for me, for us,” Fr. Paolo added.
The two brothers were born on Sept. 10, 1984. Felipe was born first, and when the placenta would not detach, doctors suggested scraping her womb. Silva refused however, saying she felt another baby was coming out. Paulo was born 17 minutes later.
“This last detail is very significant for me,” Fr. Paulo said. “The doctors inserted instruments to remove the placenta because it wouldn’t come out. My mother knew that I was there. I was late, but I came out.” Had doctors scraped his mother’s womb, he would likely have been “gravely injured.”
