Guns, abortion dominate early portion of Clinton-Trump debate

Trump and Clinton spar over Abortion Rights

In the early stages of Wednesday's Las Vegas debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had sharp exchanges on, believe it or not, issues.

In a segment on the Supreme Court, Trump and Clinton sparred over gun rights and abortion rights. Though Trump has broke with party orthodoxy on some issues, he hewed to the traditional Republican planks on these.

“I am a very strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment," the GOP nominee said, noting that he was "very proud to have the endorsement" of the National Rifle Association, while Clinton jabbed at him for receiving the group's support.

On abortion, Clinton slammed Trump for proposing to defund Planned Parenthood, calling abortion the "most personal of decisions."

Trump, meanwhile, blasted Clinton for her views on late-term abortions, saying "it's not OK with me" as he described one procedure.

“Using that kind of scare rhetoric is just terribly unfortunate," Clinton countered.
