Raunchy pro-abortion “comedian” Lena Dunham will address the Democratic National Convention, where her fellow abortion supporter Hillary Clinton will become the party’s nominee for president.
The polarizing 30-year-old actress has long supported the presumptive Democratic nominee, serving as something of a millennial liaison for Mrs. Clinton.
She interviewed the former secretary of state on her Lenny Letter newsletter, asking Mrs. Clinton, among other things, about her plan to ameliorate student loan debt and whether she considers herself a feminist.
Other celebrities set to address the convention include Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria and America Ferrera.
During that interview, Clinton sat down with Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Lena Dunham at her Brooklyn based campaign headquarters.
The interview is supposed to sway millennial women to support Clinton in her bid for president in 2016. Clinton’s communications aide, Kristina Schake, explained why the former Secretary of State wanted to meet with Dunham. She said, “Hillary was drawn to Lena’s unique voice, dynamic talent and strong commitment to women’s rights. Hillary and Lena had a strong connection, which comes through in this intimate, engaging interview.”
In the segment, Dunham asks Clinton if she’s a “feminist.”
Clinton responds, “Yes. Absolutely. I’m always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, ‘well, I believe in equal rights but I’m not a feminist.’ Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights. I’m hoping that people will not be afraid to say, that doesn’t mean you hate men, it doesn’t you want to separate out the world, so you’re not a part of ordinary life — that’s not what it means at all! It just means that we believe that women have the same rights as men.”
Although Clinton claims to be a feminist, her opposition to even the most modest abortion restrictions shows she’s not considering the ways abortion-on-demand devastates women and their families. Additionally, her support for late-term abortion is unlikely to be popular among younger women since the majority of them are against it in most circumstances.
