“Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine where rape is a tactic of war, or under attacks by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s health care and bodily autonomy.”
Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton thinks pro-lifers are the same as the Iranian regime, the Taliban, and the Russian soldiers raping Ukrainian women.
Christine Amanpour had Hillary on her program Amanpour and Company to promote “a summit on the status of women’s rights around the world” at the Clinton Presidential Center in Arkansas.
Remember, the presidential center is named for Hillary’s husband, Bill, not her. Not Hillary because President Donald Trump destroyed her in 2016.
Since September, women have been protesting the Iranian regime after a woman died in police custody. The “morality police” arrested her because she did not wear a veil, which is required in Iran.
But to Hillary, those who are against killing unborn human beings are on the same level as those three.
Amanpour had no problem with the ridiculous comparison. From MRC (emphasis mine):
HILLARY CLINTON: Well, what I think, Christiane, is that we have come a long way si [sic] I made that statement back in 1995 on so many fronts. But we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been, I think, taken for granted by too many people is under attack. Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine where rape is a tactic of war, or under attacks by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s health care and bodily autonomy.
AMANPOUR: We’re going to go around the world with you in a second. But first, about — precisely what you’re talking about and where you are. Arkansas itself, I believe, rapidly moved to make a woman’s right to choose illegal in your state or your former home state and you are hosting this conference. Talk to me about the confluence of both these events. This pushback on American women’s rights at the same time as you’re trying to figure a way forward.
CLINTON: Well, you’re absolutely right. We are here at the Clinton Presidential Center. With an exhibit that is just astonishing and the breadth and depth of its look at the history of the fight for the vote. To raise our voices. To claim our rights. And I think that’s a conversation that should happen everywhere.
Not just with people who agree with you. But we have work to do to try to defend our rights, to stand up for them. And what we’ve seen particularly since the Dobbs decision across our country is that when voters, both men and women, but led by women have a chance to vote on these draconian abortion restrictions. They do not accept them. They overturned them. They certainly want to limit the reach of the government into the most intimate, private parts of our life.
Hillary is excited about the exhibit and hopes it keeps “the conversation going.”
Amanpour happily jumped on that thought (emphasis mine):
AMANPOUR: So, let me ask you about that because, you know, keep the conversation going. Persuade everybody, et cetera. But, I mean, how much persuasion can we expect when it comes to our — and I’m speaking as a woman, basic rights. Whether it’s in the United States or around the world.
As you said, they are human rights. At what point should these be enshrined even in the American law and Constitution even. I mean, I’m probably exaggerating. But it’s extraordinary in 2022 that this basic right of women, half the world’s population is still at risk.
CLINTON: Well, you’re right and it’s why the United States Congress just this week passed a federal law protecting the right of gay marriage, the right of interracial marriage. To try to enshrine at least a federal right to those fundamental human rights. And I think we have to have that conversation going because, as you could see, with that vote in the Senate, I think, a dozen Republicans voted with all the Democrats. That would not have happened 10 years, 20 years ago. I know.
So, in a democracy when things don’t go your way, when you suffer setbacks, you need to remember that there is no permanent political victory or defeat. You have to keep fighting for these fundamental rights. You have to try to enshrine them in law as best you can. And in our system, at both the federal and the state level.
Stay classy, Hillary.
Hillary Clinton goes on PBS and compares pro-lifers to the Iranian regime, the Taliban, and Russian soldiers raping Ukrainian women. Of course, Christiane Amanpour agrees, "This pushback on American women's rights at the same time as you're trying to figure a way forward." pic.twitter.com/5GznH9uK01
