Hillary Clinton spoke at the “Women In The World” Summit earlier this year in New York. During her speech she made a comment that can be seen as a shot against people who oppose abortion.
“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth”, Hillary said, “All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. 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 statement is a shocking insight into what her legacy would be if she were elected president. It implies that if anyone opposes her views or stances on an issue that those people should give up their beliefs and/or religion to accommodate her.
That is not what this country was founded on! This country was founded with the freedom of religion written directly into the constitution. It is part of the 1st amendment, not the 2nd or 3rd. It was of utmost importance to the founding fathers.
While Hillary’s statement was only a short snippet of a long speech, it brings to light and gives a voice to the blatant attack on religious freedoms and beliefs in America. It is a disturbing trend that shows no signs of slowing down unless a person of faith is elected.
What do you think? Are Hillary’s comments taken out of context? Are you disturbed by her comments? We would love to hear your thoughts.
