Hillary Clinton likens pro-life GOP candidates to ‘terrorist groups’ who ‘don’t want to live in modern world’

Hillary Clinton compared Republican presidential candidates who hold pro-life views on abortion  to “terrorist groups” during her Cleveland speech on Thursday. Clinton said Republicans are “dead wrong for 21st century America.”

“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States,” Clinton said. “Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back.”

“I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she has access to contraception,” Clinton said. “Or anyone who has ever been protected by an HIV test.”

Presumably the former New York senator is taking aim at the calls to defund Planned Parenthood and trying to make a case for all of the non-abortion services they provide.

Clinton told the audience of around 2,000, according to Case Western Reserve University, that she takes “it a little personal when they (Republicans) go after women.”

“This is happening all over the country, even here in Ohio,” she said. “Programs and services women use to take care of themselves are being cut down.”

Jeb Bush said in a Tweet that the remarks were a sign of Clinton’s misplaced priorities.

[email protected] compares pro-life Americans to terrorists, but defends despicable PP treatment of unborn? Her priorities are totally wrong,” Bush tweeted.

“For Hillary Clinton to equate her political opponents to terrorists is a new low for her flailing campaign,” said Allison Moore, press secretary for the Republican National Committee. “She should apologize immediately for her inflammatory rhetoric.”

“Hillary Clinton just said a significant portion of Americans are the same as ‘terrorist groups’ simply because they disagree with her,” added Amelia Chassé, press secretary for America Rising PAC, an anti-Clinton opposition research group. “That is outrageous, even for a desperate politician slipping in the polls. It’s the clearest sign yet that Sec. Clinton will say or do anything to win.”

While Clinton is still the Democratic frontrunner, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has closed that gap and Vice President has risen to third in many polls, despite not even declaring that he’s in the race.
