Senator Hillary Clinton Blasts Bush Administration over Abortion [Abstinance won't stop AIDS]
Lifesite ^ | 1-11-05

Posted on 01/12/2005 7:02:50 PM PST by SJackson

NEW YORK, January 12, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortion crusader and New York Senator Hillary Clinton condemned US President George W. Bush Tuesday, claiming his withdrawal of funding from organizations that commit or promote abortions is harming women.

Speaking at an International Women's Health Coalition-sponsored dinner, Clinton claimed that "reproductive health care and family planning service is a basic right," and said this was based on decisions reached at the 1994 U.N. Population Conference in Cairo, as well as the 1995 U.N. women's conference in Beijing, where Clinton gave a keynote address.

She argued that the Bush administration has failed to uphold the so-called reproductive rights of women, by withdrawing funding from abortion-supporting organizations such as the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Clinton also maintained that the President’s focus on abstinence in sex education was hampering efforts to halt the spread of HIV/AIDS, despite the UN’s own admission that condom failure rate for preventing HIV transmission may be as high as 20 percent.

"ABC is a good strategy, but it has three parts to it and we need to remind the administration of that".

The highly successful Ugandan ABC program first emphasizes abstinence, being faithful within marriage, and lastly, condom use, as measures to prevent the HIV transmission rate. Experts say the Ugandan success is comparable to a "highly effective vaccine." The last, least emphasized and least effective part of the Ugandan program, which involves condoms, is presumably the component that Clinton was referring to.

The innocuous-sounding International Women's Health Coalition promotes abortion and contraception through funding programs in Africa, South and Central America. Their web site describes “. . . the world's most challenging health and rights issue” as “comprehensive sexuality education for adolescents and young adults.”

IWHC also actively opposes the Bush administration policies that oppose the funding of abortion. “We have worked with other organizations and governments to defeat U.S. efforts at meetings in Asia and at the UN to remove ‘reproductive health’ and other key phrases from negotiating texts,” their web site states.

Our self evident rights.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of aborted babies.

Now, if I was an evil dictator of a faraway and very rich nation... And if I wanted to impose on the reproductive rights of women...

I'd start with the ugly liberals, and sterilize them.



Now that's what I consider imposing on the reproductive rights of women. Refusing to fund abortions is not imposing on reproductive rights... merely ensuring the right to birth of a human baby.

I would like to hear from the Constitution... hmm.. what is that? NOTHING about the rights of women to kill their unborn children.

Nope not a word.

She's right, you know.

Reproductive health care is nothing more than keeping it clean and don't stick anything into it.

Family planning service is the conversation and commitment you make with your husband about how many kids you'll have/can afford.

What's the problem?

Hillary's husband obviously doesn't understand the meaning of abstinence in a marriage.

And both she and her husband screwed the US taxpayers with their departure antics when they left (no pun intended) the White House!

It might not be quite as annoying when the libs scream about how much money we are supposed to throw at these issues if they would at least admit that their gutter value system is what caused them.

The raving Marxist Medusa...get used to it, you have to listen to this moron, leftist tripe for four years. If she had her way, she would abort every baby that had the chance of growing up in a conservative family. Then put the parents in sterility camps --- only to be bred with liberals.

Abstinence won't stop AIDS? Tell that to the African countries that are turning to abstinence programs and are seeing AIDS cases drop dramatically.

This idiot wants to run our healthcare system? She's the perfect example of a bureaucrat--she "thinks big" without thinking.

I also get tired of hearing dems asserting that their pet projects and a RIGHT and not just a privilege.

The main right is the right to health care, now its the right to abortion.

Someone needs to start a REALITY TV show called: "What the Constitution of the United States SAYS and what it DOESN'T Explain that there isn't a written amendment specifically calling for the "separation of church and state".

I think the politicians abuse the citizen's ignorance when it comes to the actual rights and laws of this country---

History and political science should be stressed more in junior and senior high school.

Please, Hillary, try to bring us hayseed American voters the much needed legislation that will put you and your wise and compassionate government friends in charge of overseeing our "basic right" to health care.

It will amuse me to see you try again what you tried to do in 1993 resulting in the Democrats being on the receiving end of the greatest drubbing ever in congressional election history.

Well, you may want to pay attention. Abortion is not the only topic on this planet.

If I were W, I would issue an Executive Order to have the UN building, on the East Side of New York City evacuated. Within 30 days, I would have the Army Corps of Engineers tasked with imploding that structure.

No respect for the beliefs of Catholics in those areas of the world. I suspect that promoting abortion in Catholic countries does not help our image.
