At yesterday’s Women in the World Summit in New York City, putative Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said “deep seated….religious beliefs” around the world “have to be changed” to promote “critical access” to “reproductive health care,” which is for her and her allies in the Democratic Party a euphemism for abortion on demand.
Think about that and what it means for her and her party’s view of religious liberty in America and around the world. The sincere religious beliefs of Christians, Muslims, and others about the sanctity of human life must be changed so that Hillary’s radical abortion agenda can succeed. How exactly does Hillary Clinton as president intend to use her power to effect this change? And what other religious convictions must be thrown overboard along the way? The New York Times columnist Frank Bruni wrote earlier this month that it is time to “free religion” from its pesky reliance on Scripture and that church leaders “must be made” to take homosexuality “off the sin list.” Does Hillary Clinton agree?
These are the questions that get to the heart of the radical agenda Clinton and the party she leads have for America. The Republican presidential candidate who asks them with clarity and courage will be the one who, in my view, deserves to be the nominee.
Frank Cannon is the president of American Principles in Action.
