ANCHORAGE, Alaska, May 7 (UPI) -- During an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could potentially change her position on abortion now that she has a grandchild on the way.

Palin said that becoming a grandmother will "broaden her world view."

Also she, just knowing that her daughter Chelsea is pregnant with a baby -- it’s a real baby! It’s not some disposable something -- and I know that will be controversial -- but those who, perhaps, they’re in this position now as a parent or a grandparent, they realize that sanctity of life, how innocent, how precious it is. And of all places it should be in the womb that these babies are protected. So maybe even on a social issue like that she’ll open her eyes.

Chelsea Clinton announced at an event last month that she and her husband are expecting their first child. Clinton expressed her delight on Twitter, but did not comment on changing her stance on abortion.
