Failed 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, like so many other politicians and pundits on the left, continues to be perpetually outraged by the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that struck down Roe v. Wade and the supposed federal “right” for women to kill their unborn babies.
The former Secretary of State Clinton is now arguing that, in terms of women’s rights, pro-life states that imposed limits on abortions are akin to Russian soldiers mercilessly raping Ukrainian women, LifeNews reported.
Clinton also drew comparisons between America as a whole, but especially the pro-life states, and the brutally oppressive and totalitarian Islamist regimes of Afghanistan, Iran, and Sudan, again in regard to women’s rights.
Women’s rights in U.S. now on par with Afghanistan, Iran
Those comments from Clinton, in all of their absurdly hyperbolic glory, came during an interview Thursday with CNN International’s Christiane Amanpour to promote a Women’s Voices Summit she was hosting over the weekend at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to Breitbart.
In reference to the “unfinished business” of her never-ending fight for women’s rights, Clinton acknowledged that America had “come a long way … on so many fronts,” but nonetheless, “we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been, I think, taken for granted by too many people is under attack.”
“Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine, where rape is a tactic of war, or under attacks by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s health care and bodily autonomy,” she said.
Hillary Clinton goes on PBS and compares pro-lifers to the Iranian regime, the Taliban, and Russian soldiers raping Ukrainian women. Of course, Christiane Amanpour agrees, “This pushback on American women’s rights at the same time as you’re trying to figure a way forward.” pic.twitter.com/5GznH9uK01

Optimistic voters will overturn pro-life laws
LifeNews noted that, rather than call out the ridiculousness of Clinton’s comparisons, Amanpour played right into them and said, “Arkansas itself, I believe, rapidly moved to make a woman’s right to choose illegal in your state, or your former home state, and you are hosting this conference. Talk to me about the confluence of both these events. This pushback on American women’s rights at the same time as you’re trying to figure a way forward.”
Clinton replied that “we have work to do to try to defend our rights, to stand up for them,” but expressed optimism in that “what we’ve seen particularly since the Dobbs decision across our country is that when voters — both men and women, but led by women — have a chance to vote on these draconian abortion restrictions, they do not accept them. They overturned them. They certainly want to limit the reach of the government into the most intimate, private parts of our life.”
“So, we’ll see what happens in states like Arkansas and so many others when we face real-world problems,” she added. “I just believe that the fervor of the interests that are saying there should be absolutely no choice for women in half the states or more of our country will run right up against reality.”
America now no better than Afghanistan or Sudan
According to Fox News, Clinton continued with her ludicrous rhetoric on Friday during an address at the summit, when she said, “It’s so shocking to think that in any way we’re related to poor Afghanistan and Sudan. But as an advanced economy as we allegedly are, on this measure, we, unfortunately, are rightly put with them.”
She would go on to say, “This struggle is between autocracy and democracy from our country to places we can’t even believe we’re being compared to.”
