(FreedomBeacon.com)- At the inaugural inauguration of the new Global Embassy for Women in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton and others spoke about reproductive rights only days after an extraordinary Supreme Court leak disclosed a draft judgment overturning Roe v. Wade.
Vital Voices, a worldwide charity that invests in women’s leadership and development, created the headquarters. It was formed in 1997 by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Clinton, and former US Ambassador for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer.
According to press reports, Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that It was an ironic week to be opening the headquarters. Still, it was probably appropriate because no advance is ever permanent. There are always pressures at work to turn the clock back, especially on women, she claimed. Speaking to a panel on the state of women’s rights, she claimed that there was still a double standard regarding what is expected and suitable for how women make decisions in their own lives.
Clinton then cited the recent Supreme Court decision and state-level abortion restrictions as roadblocks to progress. “We’re not going back, and we are not giving in,” Clinton said. She felt the organization must do everything it could to organize, agitate, and encourage progress.
If the draft ruling is upheld, the Center for Reproductive Rights believes that up to 25 states might criminalize abortion completely.
While overturning Roe v. Wade would not make abortion illegal at the federal level, experts say it would leave abortion regulation to the states to determine for themselves.
Clinton claimed the Supreme Court ruling was “incredibly dangerous” in an interview with CBS News. She urged people to vote for those who stand up for women’s rights in November’s midterm elections.
She boldly claimed that if this Supreme Court Rule succeeds, politicians would then deny other rights to Americans, saying there is no limit to what rights can be stripped. She then stated, without evidence, that rights enjoyed by blacks, gays, and women would all be taken away.
