THE BLAZE - CHRIS ENLOE - DEC 5, 2022
A Catholic bishop from Texas sharply rebuked Hillary Clinton after she compared women suffering from systematic persecution and war to American women who cannot get abortion on demand.
What did Clinton say?
Clinton claimed at a women's rights summit last Thursday that American women, in light of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, face similar peril as women in Iran, Afghanistan, Ukraine.
"We have come a long way... on so many fronts, but we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been taken for granted by too many people is under attack. Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine — where rape is a tactic of war — or under attack by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women's health care and bodily autonomy," Clinton said.
The twice-failed presidential candidate went so far as to claim America is just like Afghanistan or Sudan, two war-torn nations, because of the status of women's rights.
"It’s so shocking to think that in any way we’re related to poor Afghanistan and Sudan," she said, Fox News reported. "But as an advanced economy, as we allegedly are, on this measure, we unfortunately are rightly put with them."
