Hillary Clinton: Republicans Who Want to Defund Planned Parenthood Are Like ‘Terrorist Groups’

In Hillary’s world, if you’re a person who wants to stop Planned Parenthood from dismembering babies — from slicing open their faces to sell their brains — then you’re like ISIS:

In this delightful video, she claims Marco Rubio wants to deny victims of rape and incest “access to healthcare, to an abortion,” condemns Jeb Bush for wanting to de-fund Planned Parenthood, and attacks John Kasich for allegedly not providing state funding for rape crisis centers that referred patients for abortion. Next she does the standard misleading pivot and talks about cancer screenings, contraception, and HIV screenings — services available from thousands and thousands of facilities not named “Planned Parenthood.” Then, she lowers the boom:

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world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be President of the United States, yet espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century for America. We are going forward. We are not going back.

Do I really need to explain how absurd, how extremist, this rhetoric is? People who want to stop child-killings are comparable to child-killers? As for this “out of date” rhetoric, that’s a little much to take from a woman clinging to an abortion-on-demand regime rooted in early-twentieth-century racist junk science. Abortion is “dead wrong” for any century, and comparing pro-life politicians to ISIS is both vicious and desperate.
