Hillary Clinton was busy last week. Not only did she sit down for a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in which she continued to blame FBI Director James Comey, Russia, and all the usual suspects for costing her the 2016 election, she also made time to stop by a Planned Parenthood event to accept the “Champion of the Century” award from the chief abortionist herself, Cecile Richards.
In accepting the award, Clinton said that standing up for abortion rights was nothing less than “an issue of morality.”
“I wish it were common ground, but I know for sure it is higher ground. And I believe, as you do, that trusting and valuing women is the right and moral position to take,” she said, demonstrating that last year’s concerns over her neurological health were not unfounded.
Hillary said that while she was certain to her core that she was on the right side of the abortion debate, it was important to keep an open dialogue with those who disagreed.
“I believe we can and should respect deeply held beliefs of our friends, our neighbors, our fellow citizens, even if they differ from our own,” she said. “That’s what should make America, America.”
Yes, everyone could feel that deep respect emanating from her arrogant trap when she said half of her opponent’s supporters could be described as a basket of deplorables.
She said that – respect or no respect – there could be no quarter given to those who would challenge a woman’s right to kill her unborn child. Which, as a reminder, she feels is the “moral position.”
“Yes, let’s respect people’s convictions,” she said, “but never back down from our commitment to defend the ability of every woman to make these deeply personal decisions for herself.”
Clinton, who has apparently been binge-watching Hulu when not writing hate mail to the FBI, said that she could see parallels between the new series “The Handmaid’s Tale” and the current state of women’s rights in America.
“I’m not suggesting this dystopian future is around the corner,” she said, “but this show has prompted important conversations about women’s rights and autonomy.
“In The Handmaid’s Tale, women’s rights are gradually, slowly stripped away,” she continued. “As one character says, ‘We didn’t look up from our phones until it was too late.’ It is not too late for us, but we have to encourage the millions of women and men who support Planned Parenthood’s mission to keep fighting.”
If our only two possible futures as a nation is one where women are enslaved as concubines and one where we openly encourage the mass killing of a million unborn babies every year, then we are in dystopian times already.
But hey, at least she’s not the president.
