Yesterday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton compared pro-life people to terrorists by going after the Republican presidential candidates who favor de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business after it was recently caught selling aborted babies and their body parts.
On the campaign trail, Clinton compared pro-life people to terrorists:
“I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception, or anyone who’s ever been protected by an HIV test. Now, extreme views about women?” Clinton says in the video. “We expect that from some of the terrorist groups.”
Clinton continued: “We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st-century America. We’re going forward. We’re not going back.”
Republican candidates Scott Walker and Jeb Bush fired back at Clinton, with Bush saying, “.@HillaryClinton compares pro-life Americans to terrorists, but defends despicable PP treatment of unborn? Her priorities are totally wrong” and Walker defending his pro-life record as the number of abortions in Wisconsin have dropped to a record low.
Now, pro-life Republican presidential candidate Caryl Fiorina is responding. She says Hillary Clinton is the real extremist, not pro-life Americans.
“Well, it’s outrageous. I mean, it’s an outrageous statement, and she will be called on it,” Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO, said Friday on Fox News.
The Washington Times has more on Fiorina’s reaction:
“But it’s also typical — it’s typical of Hillary Clinton; frankly, it’s typical of Democrats,” Ms. Fiorina said. “I mean, remember President Obama [has] compared anyone who opposed his Iranian deal, a terrible deal, to the hardliners in Iran chanting, ‘Death to America.’ This is typical.
“And what it tells us is that Hillary Clinton has no qualms about continuing to try and wage this supposed ‘war on women’ card as she runs for president,” she continued. “We ought to expect this. Democrats are continually describing Republicans as extreme when the truth is, it is Democrats who are extreme.
“They are extreme as she continues to defend Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood can no longer be defended, and yet Hillary Clinton is out there defending them,” Ms. Fiorina said. “It’s unclear that she’s ever had the courage to watch these videotapes, to actually see what Planned Parenthood is doing.
“So Hillary Clinton and her party are the extremists here on a whole series of issues, and her comparing any Republican to a terrorist is simply over the line,” Ms. Fiorina said.
