Hillary’s abortion agenda ‘right out of Sanger’s playbook’
Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.) points out that the aspiring first woman to lead from the Oval Office is following in the footsteps of another woman who is not only credited with starting the abortion movement a century ago, but with embedding America in extreme forms of racism and communism that plague the nation to this day.
“Sanger was a racist and eugenicist who referred to African-Americans and disabled Americans as ‘morons,’ ‘imbeciles,’ ‘human weeds’ and ‘misfits,’” Rothfus wrote in his column posted on LifeNews. “Sanger admired – and closely studied – Stalinist Russia’s eugenicist policies. She marveled at how the communist state utilized both abortion and religious oppression to advance its societal goals, [and] like her protégé Hillary Clinton, Sanger attacked religious beliefs as an obstacle to abortion and stated: ‘We [in America] could well take example from Russia.’”
Reflecting Sanger’s eagerness to push the envelope when it comes to America’s policy on abortion, Clinton is aiming to make sure abortions are not only paid for by every American, but that they are available at every stage of a woman’s pregnancy.
“Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has extreme ambitions for abortion on demand in America,” the Representative impressed. “She wants to make it taxpayer funded and available until the day of birth – and she does not want the First Amendment to get in her way.”
Rothfus reminds Americans who have convictions to protect preborn babies that they do not have to stand aside and endure Clinton’s extreme abortion agenda for the next four years.
“Fortunately for Americans who want to disentangle tax dollars from abortion – which pro-life Americans consider morally wrong and which a number of pro-choice Americans consider morally fraught – we do have another option this November,” the pro-life advocate pointed out.
He went on to emphasize that the conservatives’ choice for president, Donald Trump, has declared action plans to make sure that the extreme abortion agenda implemented by President Barack Obama and touted by Clinton will not move forward.
“Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump recently released his pro-life platform, which includes making permanent the Hyde Amendment – the 1976 law prohibiting the use of federal money for abortion except in cases when the mother’s life is at stake or in cases of rape or incest,” Rothfus pointed out. “He promises to sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which I cosponsored and supported on the House floor; nominate pro-life justices to the Supreme Court; and defund Planned Parenthood so long as they continue to perform abortions.”
The conservative from Pennsylvania then gave Americans a taste of what they can expect in the upcoming years if they cast their vote for the Democratic ticket come November.
“If elected president, Hillary Clinton promises to repeal the Hyde Amendment,” Rothfus informed. “Likewise, the 2016 Democratic Party platform states the party’s intention to overturn laws and policies that it believes ‘impede a woman’s access to abortion,’ including the Hyde Amendment. This aggressive abortion agenda reflects a radical departure from commonly held positions of pro-life and pro-choice Americans over the past four decades and is not based on current public opinion.”
A recent national poll was then pointed to … indicating that approximately eight in 10 Americans support restrictions on abortion and would restrict the practice to the first trimester of a woman’s pregnancy. The latest poll conducted by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion also divulged that 62 percent of Americans are against taxpayers funding abortion – with an impressive 45 percent of pro-abortion Americans agreeing.
Rothfus went on to impress that besides the public pressure to fund abortion with taxpayer dollars, the political Left is motivated to adopt its extreme abortion agenda in order to make money … a lot of it.
“Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was paid more than $2.47 million from 2009 to 2013,” the politician representing the 12th District of the United States Congress emphasized. “In 2013, the profit-driven abortion giant reported net assets of $1.4 billion, performed 327,653 abortions, and accepted $528 million in taxpayer funds. But beyond this, abortion is one of the most powerful tools at liberal elites’ disposal to socially engineer society.”
Religious liberties no more …
Ruthfus also brought up Clinton’s own words that she uttered during her 6th annual Women in the World Summit speech, when she unapologetically declared “religious beliefs” to be an undue obstacle to abortion. While touting her extreme abortion plan that she dubbed with the euphemism “reproductive healthcare,” the former first lady insisted that the controversial and lethal procedure is absolutely necessary for women’s advancement in society across America.
“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” Clinton impressed. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
Ruthfus contends that besides opening the floodgate to the increased killing of millions of more preborn children across America, a Clinton win in November will usher in a new era of diminished religious liberty for everyone.
“[W]ith Clinton in the Oval Office, there would be little to no space for authentic religious expression in the public sphere,” the politician from the Keystone State argued. “Religious freedom, especially as it pertains to the issue of abortion, would be reduced to freedom of worship – believe what you want inside your church or place of worship, but step into the public sphere, and you must live according to the moral dictates of the secular state.”
To add to his warning about the limits of religious expression that would be enforced if another Clinton administration takes over the White House in January, Ruthfus appealed to a quote from one of America’s most renowned civil rights leaders to illustrate what extreme measures the religious community would have to take.
“If today I lived in a communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country’s antireligious laws,” wrote Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”
A final case and point was then given to stress how important it is for Americans to cast a vote for their conscience in this fall’s presidential election.
“Inspired by Dr. King’s courage and unrelenting conviction, we must never stop fighting for life and religious freedom – the cornerstones of the American way – and we must speak loudly for the most defenseless and voiceless among us at the ballot box this November,” Ruthfus concluded.
