'That’s a true story': Chelsea Clinton claims she stopped going to church at age 6 over abortion stance

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton claimed that she left her congregation because the church was talking to her about abortion, citing that she decided to leave her church at just 6 years old.

Clinton made remarks at a fundraiser for her mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and commented on accusations that her family aren't as religious as they have purported to be.

"I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad, or me ... that they question our faith," she said, according to Daily Fetched.

The 43-year-old then claimed that it was during her time at Sunday school when she made a heavy ideological choice at the young age of 6.

"I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did, because I didn’t know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday school — that’s a true story," she continued.

"My mother is very deeply a person of faith," the former president's daughter went on. "It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her life’s work."

Clinton chalked up her stance on religion to the idea that there are different interpretations of the Bible but stated she takes issue with liberals who disapprove of her family's religious background.

"I recognized that there were many expressions of faith that I don’t agree with and feel [are] quite antithetical to how I read the Bible."

"I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family’s history," she added.

Clinton previously made headlines when she provided her stance on Roe v. Wade during a 2018 town hall on Sirius XM Radio.

"Optimism is a moral choice," she began, in regard to how she felt about the fight for abortion rights.

“When I think about all of the statistics that are painful of what women are confronting today in our country and what even more women confronted pre-Roe and how many women died and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that,” Clinton told the radio hosts.

"That’s unconscionable to me, and also, and I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unChristian to me," she claimed.

Clinton added that she had been compared to slave owners and Nazis at the time and stated that it was due to her being bold enough to say what the Supreme Court and Planned Parenthood had before her.

"Our ability to participate fully in our society — including economically — hinges on our ability to be able to make choices for our our bodies."
