Hillary Clinton: Worst Secretary of State

Hattip to the Politico. 

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke out in favor of health care coverage for abortions during a trip to Canada this week, taking a position at odds with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on a maternal health issue scheduled for discussion at the upcoming G-8 summit in Ontario.

“I’m not going to speak for what Canada decides, but I will say that I’ve worked in this area for many years,” Clinton told reporters. “And if we’re talking about maternal health, you cannot have maternal health without reproductive health. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion.”

Harper has said that abortion would not be a focus of the June summit’s conversation on maternal health. But in an interview with the CBC, Clinton argued: “We should be beyond arguing about family planning. Rich women in every culture have access to family planning. It’s poor women who don’t. And I’ve always believed if it’s good enough for a woman of education and affluence, then why isn’t it good enough for a woman who is struggling to raise the children she already has? So family planning, to me, should be just obvious and available.”

Our Secretary of State is such a pro-abort zealot that she doesn’t realize that lecturing Canada about “safe”, always very unsafe for at least  one of the persons involved, legal abortion might not be the best thing in the world for the top diplomat of the US to do.  I will be so glad when this worst Presidential administration in my life time is just a fading bad memory.

    But since this will relieve a woman of the unwanted burden of a child and spare her years of depression and possibly suicidal ideation, this is actually pro-life.

  2. Donald R. McClarey says:

    Under the “logic” of this administration Phillip, if not some of their supporters, I think infanticide could be rationalized as pro-life.

  3. JIm B says:

    These hacks and their “we know what’s best for you” tripe have no problem imposing their cultural imperialism. She’s been a tool of the Malthusian population controllers since Moby Dick was a minnow. She’s probably politicking for a cushy job at the UN in the “global government” after the State Department gig is up.

  4. American Knight says:

    I am pro-life, but I am starting to think we should abort all children born between 1945-1964. Ironic that the so-called Baby Boomers are such a anti-baby boom generation.

  5. Sam says:

    I just don’t understand how this blatant lie can continue to be told…abortion does immense and long lasting harm to the woman – and often to the family and siblings of the aborted baby…this is NEVER good for the woman and I hope the research that has been done on the disastrous effects of abortion on women will be made known to all who speak as Clinton does without knowing what she is talking about…the women of ‘Silent No More’ should demand a meeting with Clinton AND Obama who wants a baby who survives an abortion to die…what are we coming to? How will we end this madness of slaughtering the infant in the womb????

  6. Donald R. McClarey says:

    “How will we end this madness of slaughtering the infant in the womb????”

    By never giving up, never despairing and fighting this fight until we win.

  7. Tom Bruns says:

    That’s what liars do, they lie. She does not believe her own reasoning. If she really believed it was “obvious” that what was, “good enough for a woman of education and affluence” should be good enough for the poor, then why isn’t she for school choice. Chelsea went to Sidwell Friends, the same school the Obama girls go to and a school that can no longer take vouchers after Obama killed the program. A choice that kills the child and scars the woman is “obvious” to her, but not a choice to give a woman “struggling to raise the children she has” a shot at a better life?

    See how we are preserving the embryos of predator animals, yet man is arguing for the termination of the humane zygote of man. Haba Hilary Clinton!
