(NaturalNews) The word “terrorist” is a strong adjective used to describe someone or some group that uses violence and fear to pursue a political goal. It is not, however, normally used to describe someone who merely disagrees with a political position.
Nevertheless, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton thought it was an appropriate descriptor for anyone who disagrees with her over the issue of abortion and the hideous nature of Planned Parenthood’s baby-parts-for-profit schemes that are currently being exposed in a series of videos by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life organization.
“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups,” the former secretary of state said recently at a rally in Ohio. “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 Yet, they espouse out of date and out of touch policies.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.”
One major pro-life organization, however, did not take the insult lying down. Marjorie Dannelfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, characterized Clinton’s comment as “outrageous,” noting that at least half of Americans identify as pro-life.
She ought to be distancing herself
“Hillary Clinton’s outrageous comparison of pro-life Americans to terrorists is a slap in the face to every American — whether Republican or Democrat, woman or man — who value the gift of life and support commonsense limits on abortion. She is shockingly out of touch,” Dannenfelser said in a press release cited by the Washington Free Beacon.
The issue of abortion has been front and center this presidential election cycle due in large part to the exposure of Planned Parenthood’s horrific actions in harvesting and selling baby organs in the name of “science” for as much profit as possible. The videos were made by undercover journalists operating on behalf of the center earlier this year.
Initially, Clinton said nothing about the videos – and she was not hard-pressed to comment about them by the mainstream media – but eventually she was forced to address them when she told a local paper in New Hampshire that the video images were “disturbing.”
However, she later backtracked, using her support for late-term abortion to attack her Republican presidential rivals, a field that is almost universally pro-life. In addition, she has opposed GOP efforts in Congress to cut off taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood, which amount to roughly half a billion dollars annually.
“Over the last few weeks, America’s eyes have been opened to the pain that Planned Parenthood, a top Clinton ally, inflicts on the vulnerable. Graphic undercover videos have revealed Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and vivisecting unborn children and then profiting off of their organs. Rather than defaming compassionate, sensible Americans who want to stop this horror, Clinton ought to be distancing herself from the abortion business,” Dannenfelser said.
Video footage shot by CMP also revealed that the baby organ peddlers and abortionists of PP are huge fans of Clinton.
Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, a firm that has partnered with about 100 Planned Parenthood clinics to buy and sell aborted fetal organs, told an undercover video team posing as tissue buyers that she has an autographed picture of Hillary Clinton on her desk.
The Clinton campaign has taken in some $10,000 from Planned Parenthood employees, which is about 20 times more than any other candidate in the crowded 2016 field.
“Doubling down on her support for unlimited abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, paid for by taxpayers, will not win voters to Clinton’s cause,” Dannenfelser said, noting the results of a recent Marist University poll that found that 84 percent of respondents oppose late-term abortions.
