Thursday, Hillary Clinton made what may be her most outrageous statement yet—if you can believe it.
“The governor right here in Ohio banned state funding for some rape crisis centers because they sometimes refer woman to other health facilities that do provide abortions…
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Yet they espouse out of date and out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward. We are not going back.”
Let’s break down this statement with specific focus on what Hillary said about John Kasich “banning” funds from rape crisis centers.
“The governor right here in Ohio banned state funding for some rape crisis centers because they sometimes refer woman to other health facilities that do provide abortions.”
The bill to which Hillary is referring is HB108 from 2013. This bill established and designated funds to a “rape crisis trust fund,” which would help victims of sexual assault via hotlines, victim advocacy, support services, medical referrals, and other means. Governor John Kasich signed this bill into law.
However, a provision was added to the bill which would prohibit funds going to rape crisis centers that referred women to abortion providers. That’s what Hillary is talking about.
So, the majority Republican legislature in Ohio created out of whole cloth a “rape crisis trust fund” in order to help women who were victims of sexual assault. Then, after creating this fund, they decided that because abortion is murder, they would add a provision that essentially said “no funds for anyone making referrals to abortion clinics.” However, rape victims were still being offered something new, help where they didn’t have it before.
Governor Kasich approved a bill that did something new and positive for victims of rape, and Hillary is incensed that there’s a caveat regarding abortion? Sure.
Republicans believe abortion is the termination of human life, so it’s only natural they would add this provision.
“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.”
Creating a rape crisis trust fund is extreme? Oh! Creating a rape crisis trust fund without granting funds for abortions is extreme. I see.
I mean, radical Muslims oppress women by not allowing them to get an education, drive a car, or get a job. Radical Muslims subjugate women by forcing them to wear burkas that cover every square inch of their bodies. Radical Muslims also rape and decapitate women. But creating a rape crisis trust fund and then adding an anti-abortion provision? That’s so much worse—it’s not even close! Shame on you, Governor Kasich!
“They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward. We are not going back.”
“Going forward” as in establishing a rape crisis trust fund? Oh, wait, you mean “going forward” by condoning and funding unlimited abortions through the third trimester. Gotcha. I thought “going forward” meant helping women, not clamping the limbs off of children, and suctioning their body parts out of the uterus through a hose.
Hillary’s rhetoric is insane when put into perspective, yet come Election Day (assuming she’s the nominee), millions will flock to the polls in order to make her the leader of the free world—you know, cause she’s a woman and stuff.
