Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, has revealed that she left a Baptist church over the issue of abortion.


Clinton, according to The Christian Post, said she is tired of people questioning her faith and the faith of her parents.


Clinton revealed that she was raised in the Methodist Church, but attended a Baptist church for a time until the the Baptist stance on the issue of abortion made her ultimately decide to leave.


Clinton claims that she was taught about abortion in the Baptist church while only six years old in Sunday School.


"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 said.


Clinton added that she, as well as her parents, are people of faith.


"My mother is very deeply a person of faith," Chelsea Clinton said, according to Page Six. "It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her life's work."


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


Both Chelsea and Hillary Clinton have been advocates for the pro-choice movement and for Planned Parenthood.
