A couple of weeks ago, Republican legislators took on the task of “defunding Planned Parenthood,” a measure that was generally doomed to failure, but designed to make a statement that doing things like chopping up aborted babies and shipping them off for science experiements, were part of a looser definition of “womens health” than most people are typically comfortable with. A few states ultimately succeeded in revoking state-based funding for Planned Parenthood, and several attorneys general are investigating claims that Planned Parenthood is collecting more than just reimbursements for supplying lots of baby livers and brains.
But, according to Hillary Clinton, who, by virtue of being a woman who happens to be running for President and is, therefore, the only candidate with any concern for women’s needs, anyone who would question Planned Parenthood’s decision to cut into a baby’s face while its heart is beating is basically the same as ISIS “rebels” who round up women for sex slavery, behead thousands of “apostates” in the Middle East, and finance their operation with black market organs they take from their prisoners.
I’m going to have to go out on a limb and suggest that that’s an unfair comparison, especially coming from a woman who has yet to address whether she’s supportive of partial birth abortion — “aborting” babies right before they come down the birth canal, just moments before they hit fresh air.
In a way, this is probably all Hillary Clinton has left, so I understand why she has to resort to taking a vanguard position in the #WaronWomen. She can’t credibly talk about foreign policy without being asked about her emails. She can’t credibly talk about domestic policy since she’s never actually handled any. And she can’t talk about her accomplishments because she’s not allowed to consider accumulating a walk-in closet full of Armani pantsuits an exercise in economic stimulus. It’s murdering babies or nothing. Of course, she fails to note that advances in healthcare legislation — most notably, Obamacare – have made the type of “womens healthcare” that Planned Parenthood provides (aside from abortion), not only accessible, but available for free to almost every American. So defunding Planned Parenthood merely forces it to compete in the healthcare market without the aid of millions in corporate welfare.
But whatever, everyone. You’re basically the Taliban. Or something.
