(CNS) — Support for killing the unborn is actually “pro-life,” former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton declared, replying to criticism for her claim that abortion contributes to economic growth.

“Pro-choice is pro-life,” Clinton tweeted on Tuesday, in response to a critical tweet citing a CNSNews.com story and video of a claim Clinton made on Saturday in which she credited the 1973 “Roe v. Wade” decision for helping to stimulate three and a half trillion dollars of economic growth because more women have entered the work force, rather than staying home to care for children.
