Last week we heard that the Supreme Court’s decision overturning a 35 foot “buffer zone” around abortion clinics in Massachusetts was part of the war on women. Ironically, it was a unanimous decision which means that Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Ruth Vader Ginsburg have declared war on women.
Now Hillary is lambasting the high court’s decision on Hobby Lobby.
Part of the reason I was so adamant about including women and girls in our foreign policy, not as a luxury but as a central issue is because they’re often the canaries in the mine,” Clinton said. “You watch women and girls being deprived of their rights, some of them never have them, some of them lose them. Among those rights is control over their body’s, control over their own health care, control over the size of their families. It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, anti-democratic, and frankly prone to extremism. Where women and women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying issue to bring together people – men – to get them to behave in ways that are disadvantageous to women but which prop up them because of their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever. So to introduce this element into our society…it’s very troubling that a salesclerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.
Now, of course, it’s ironic that the basis of the court’s decision was based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which President Bill Clinton signed.
So…now are we to believe that Bill Clinton has joined the war on women? Oh wait, that’s actually kinda’ believable so never mind that part.
It just goes to show that this is a political (and fundraising) issue for the Democrat party. Reality has nothing to do with it. They know that a winning strategy for them is to continue to advance the belief that Republicans hate women and will do anything to keep them barefoot and pregnant.
