Hillary Clinton tells UN: No human progress without abortion-on-demand
by Kirsten Andersen
NEW YORK CITY, March 13, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is expected to be the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, believes it is a bedrock truth that abortion restrictions hamper human progress, and any efforts to improve womens rights must begin with increased access to contraception and abortion.
Addressing the United Nations for International Womens Day, Clinton told her audience, There is one lesson from the past, in particular, that we cannot afford to ignore: You cannot make progress on gender equality or broader human development, without safeguarding womens reproductive health and rights. That is a bedrock truth.
Expanding access to so-called family planning services like contraception and abortion, Clinton said, must be the starting point for work today when it comes to womens rights.
Clinton said that even the United States, which has some of the most lenient abortion laws of any developed Western nation, falls short when it comes to giving women free access to abortion-on-demand.
This remains the great unfinished business of the 21st century, Clinton said. No country in the world, including my own, has achieved full participation.
Abortion access as a fundamental human right has long been a core principle for Mrs. Clinton. On the very first day of her husband Bill Clintons presidency in 1993, which nearly coincided with the 20th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, she pushed him to sign five executive orders authorizing federal funding for and involvement with abortion both of which had been banned under Presidents Bush and Reagan.

While her husbands staff thought it was too soon to make such a controversial move, Mrs. Clinton strongly disagreed. Biographer Carl Bernstein wrote in his 2007 book A Woman in Charge, The milestone anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in Hillarys view, was the perfect opportunity to move the new presidency on course unambiguously in terms of womens rights, signal the religious right that its decade of dominance in regard to such personal questions was over.
As first lady, Mrs. Clinton chaired the task force overseeing the development of the presidents ultimately disastrous attempt at transitioning the U.S. into a universal health care system. She promised that under the Clinton plan, abortion would be widely available, even promising federal funding for the controversial new abortion drug RU-486 which she had been instrumental in fast-tracking through the FDA approval process. Mrs. Clinton was also instrumental in making Plan B, the so-called morning-after pill, legal in America.
At a 1994 UN conference on population and development in Cairo, the Clintons stacked the U.S. delegation with pro-abortion representatives who pressured world leaders to include access to abortion in their definition of reproductive health care, which was about to be declared a fundamental human right. Ultimately, the push failed, and the Cairo document went forward without abortion enshrined in its definition of basic reproductive health care. But the following year, Mrs. Clinton made world headlines with her speech at the 4th World Conference on Women in Beijing, in which she again spoke strongly in favor of choice.
More recently, as Secretary of State, Clinton told the 2012 Rio+20 United Nations conference in Rio de Janeiro that she was disappointed they had once again failed to enshrine abortion-on-demand as a basic human right. "While I am very pleased that this year's outcome document endorses sexual and reproductive health and universal access to family planning, to reach our goals in sustainable development we also have to ensure women's reproductive rights, Clinton said.
She promised that with or without UN backing, the U.S. would continue to lead the charge to expand access to elective abortion around the world.
Women’s rights = legal murder
Human progress my butt! I wonder what the Muslim nations at the UN had to say about that one?
If Americans elect this monster to be their next President, this country deserves whatever happens to it.
With the child we have in there now, we already do deserve whatever happens.
Killing babies IS NOT PROGRESS!!!!!
Gehenna is not new.
We can’t execute that guy on death row, HE MAY BE INNOCENT!
But go ahead and kill that baby. It may be guilty of something.
What right did she have to “fast track” anything
through the FDA?
They prefer to kill them after they are born.
The stupid white folks who abort their children fall into the category of either collateral damage or too stupid to live.
From an old country song:
Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell
Since Hillary loves abortion so much..maybe she can do a post abortion on HERSELF..I know I wouldn’t miss her..I think Reagan said it best, why is it that abortion lovers have themselves, never been aborted
oh, and let’s not forget to protect the baby seals!
as a great woman once said... what difference doe it make.
You have to kill humans to save them.../sarc
Save us from Hillary Clinton, a shallow-minded, power-hungry, ravenous harpy.
She is simply despicable. At least the gloves are off, no equivocation.
According to her world view, too many of the wrong kind of child is being born. This must be stopped! She would have fit in perfectly in Nazi Germany, or Lenin’s Russia.
21st Century Moloch.
“progressives” are now about asserting their foundation of eugenics as a fundamental right.
But don't pretend the ROP is any defender of the innocent.
Inside or outside of the womb, infanticide is infanticide.
To equate woman's interest with the right to kill her unborn baby at her merest whim--or what else is "abortion on demand"--flies in the face both of nature & morality. In trivializing the profound function that has always defined purposeful feminine function, she is obviously no spokeswoman for rational femininity.
No human progress without human destruction. That’s what that means.
Femenists revel in the fact abortion allows women to legally murder another person. It’s the only law that lets them get away with murder for ANY reason they want. No man has that power, it’s got to be proven in self-defense. But women get to be murderers and the state says it’s legal.
This is why Christians have to be involved in government - voting, running for office, etc. Don’t let them compartmentalize your life. The liberals live THEIR beliefs 24/7 but they don’t want YOU to.
"Ve Must Keep Ze Bloodlines Pure!"
The only way to protect women’s rights is to teach them to JUST SAY NO to unmarried sex. Hey, it works!
“Hillary Clinton tells UN: No human progress without abortion-on-demand”
Read another way: Hillary! says we need to be able to kill babies whenever we want.
I’d like to know just why didn’t her mother abort her?
Um, no human progress without killing tiny humans. Or are they just tissue masses/tumors. Sadly, Mrs. Rodham didn’t have that option so we end up burdened with the hildebeast.
Have you noticed that women, today, run around mostly naked on the beach advertising their wares to attract a man to mate with? They then support laws to murder the result of their advertising, beats the hell out of me.
she’s a wide-awake nightmare.
From the mouth of the talking farm animal. She is what she is. Reincarnate of Hitler.
That’s about it isn’t it. Still, there is an aspect that is different.
They don’t care if the guy on death row is guilty or not. They just can’t find it within themselves to meet out punishment fitting the crime.
Some of these people were caught in the act of doing incredibly vile things. No matter, they should get to live decades longer than their victims, every one of them asking for an appeal, and not a one of them getting it.
Babies in the womb get no advocacy or appeal that is HEARD by the Left.
The Left actually shares a good many characteristics of the murderer.
Make it easy. Just kill all the children.
When the state demands, you obey.
I note rhat Chelsea made it out of the womb alive.
Looks like Margret Sanger’s ideology is still in full swing. Her plan to rid society of her so called “human weeds” aka minorities, poor, etc seems to working perfectly as is her “Negro Project.” Progressives sure are consistent regardless of the era. Eugenics, urban living, dependence on government for daily things, mass transportation, destroying tradition and personal independence, disarming the nation’s citizens, dismantling the nation’s military, indoctrinating children and destroying Christianity. It does not matter what country or what period of time, it’s always the same.
That squares with her position on human life in general. The Benghazi Four would concur — if she and obozo hadn’t let them die.
So, let me get this straight, there was no human progress until the 1960s-70s, is that right?
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Does she mention on whose demand?
Hillary has such an impoverished, destitute heart that if it were a nation, Haiti would be sending it aid.
There is no love in it, no mother in it, no compassion in it. Those little babies should be held close and loved, and the tenderness will be rewarded with the knowledge that the helpless and innocent little child has been protected. How can any Mother not see that?
instant brain pain. Used to feel it when talking with a psychopathic family. Going to take some aspirin.
Haven’t seen that pic in a while. The staged “suicide” of Vince Foster in Ft. Marcy Park. I am still in wonderment that that murder has not been solved. Is there even a “cold case” person still looking at it. Oh, I forgot. It was ruled a suicide so case closed! The Clintons are despicable. Both of them!
Yes it is Dutch. Yes it is.
“You might very well think that, Madam Secretary. I couldn’t possibly comment.”
Life under Hillary’s rule is going to suck as bad or worse than that under the Obama regime.
And boys and men are wearing yards of fabric when they go in the water to swim!
This symbolizes more than anything the emasculation of boys and the messing of the minds of girls, to the severe detriment of society's future health.
