Ted Cruz attacks Hillary Clinton on abortion stance, Hispanic vote at risk

Ted Cruz said Thursday that Hillary Clinton’s support for unbridled abortion-on-demand will prove costly the Hispanic demographic that the Democratic Party.

At a campaign stop in Pocahontas, Iowa, Cruz said conservatives can win the general election by taking a traditional stance on moral and social issues.

“You know who doesn’t think abortion is a winning issue for Democrats?” he asked. “Democrats.”

“Hillary Clinton supports unlimited abortion on demand up to the moment of birth with taxpayer funding,” Cruz said, stating that only nine percent of the American people held to such a view.

“Unlike Wendy Davis, I didn’t wear pink tennis shoes while I was doing it,” Cruz quipped at the Pizza Ranch in Pocahontas contrasting his filibuster experiences with Davis’ on abortion.

When Davis ran for the Democratic nomination in the Texas governor’s race, she lost 20 counties, including seven in deeply poverty-stricken Rio Grande Valley, to an unknown Democratic primary challenger named Reynaldo “Ray” Madrigal, who described his views as pro-life.

Madrigal said in February 2014 that Davis’ abortion extremism was rejected by a wide swath of the electorate. “It’s just not Catholics. It is Baptists and people of other religions. They don’t support abortion,” he said, “and Wendy Davis is an abortion candidate.”

While Davis prevailed, Republican Greg Abbott won the general election.

Davis told The Texas Tribune that Cruz’s pro-life convictions amount to “extremism” that is “out of sync with American voters.”

A 2014 Pew Research Center poll found, “On the issue of abortion, Hispanics overall have long been more likely to say it should be illegal in all or most cases.”

When asked about a ‘war on contraception,’ Cruz joked back “Heidi and I have two little girls. I’m very glad we don’t have 17.”
