Hillary Clinton: let’s use government to force Christians to stop being pro-life

My friend Mary from Marin tweeted this story from Life News.

It says:

In a speech last week, Hillary Clinton lamented that too many women are supposedly denied abortions. The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that pro-abortion comment, but she also is drawing widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech.

The comment has Hillary Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions.

“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion.

“Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,:

That is not going over well with pro-life advocates.

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League let Hillary have it in his remarks to LifeNews.

“It was not surprising that Hillary Clinton, who strongly opposes a ban on partial-birth abortion, would tell her feminist audience that she supports Planned Parenthood. What was surprising was her comment on the need to change religious beliefs on abortion,” he said. “In others words, Hillary has a problem with the Catholic Church’s teachings on abortionthey must be changed.”

“Never before have we seen a presidential candidate be this bold about directly confronting the Catholic Church’s teachings on abortion. It’s time for Hillary to take the next step and tell us exactly what she plans to do about delivering on her pledge. Not only would practicing Catholics like to know, so would Evangelicals, Orthodox Jews, Muslims, and all those who value life from conception to natural death,” Donohue added.

David Ripley of Idaho Chooses Life also condemned her remarks.

“We have known for some time that abortion would be Hillary’s primary campaign message,” he said. “What made this particular speech unique was Hillary’s bold declaration that God needed to get His act together on this whole abortion thing. It was past time to update the Ten Commandments.”

“Now, of course, most of those “religious beliefs” are based upon clear teachings within Scripture that teach us to hold children precious, to sacrifice ourselves for others – and, above all, not to kill the innocent. What Clinton and her comrades on the Left do not seem to understand is that our religious beliefs are not a matter of personal opinion, but, rather, one of submission to our Creator,” Ripley continued. “Clinton is not the first self-proclaimed leader to shake a fist at the Almighty. One can presume that He is not particularly impressed; though His heart is undoubtedly grieved.”

“And we can all be grieved that a person of such arrogance stands a chance of becoming president over this great nation,” he concluded.

Here she is speaking to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider:

And Planned Parenthood gets taxpayer funding.

A lot of evangelical Christian women will be voting for Hillary just because she is a woman. Do you know any? Why don’t you ask them?

  1. And they call philosophers “doodles with words.”

    “Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,”

    Changed into who’s deep-seated cultural, religious or structural biases? Without a foundation whatever you build will eventually fail. “Feet firmly planted in mid-air.”

    “Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,”

    Then why they are trying so hard to annihilate the first ten we had as a country, and for further matter the God given ten?

  2. Is anyone really surprised by this? I mean -really- surprised? If religious viewpoints (and needless to say, ethics) are seen as merely subjective life-enhancement bolt-ons and the ‘default’ position is an inherently secular worldview, it is frankly inevitable that such views will be forced to change to accommodate the ‘default’. Which is, of course, why secularists generally want to smear those who present a philosophical case for the humanity of the unborn as ‘religious’.

    As long as Christianity is seen as an optional addition to the secular, we will continue to see encroachments on ‘religious freedom’ like this. The only thing capable of pushing back against this is a sustained presentation of the objective truth of Christianity – which, sadly, many in the Church seem unwilling to do, preferring instead to implicitly confirm the prevailing belief that we are one ineffectual bolt-on among many.
