Hillary Clinton Believes 1st Amendment Rights Controversial, But “Crushing” Fetal Baby Parts, Not So Much

Filed under: General — Dana @ 11:49 am

[guest post by Dana]

Hillary Clinton, darling of Planned Parenthood, has not commented on the harrowing video released this week which shows PP Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Nucatola discussing the harvesting of fetal baby organs and PP’s involvement in profiting from the practice. Clinton has not come to the defense of either Dr. Nucatola or Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. And, of course, this self-proclaimed life-long advocate for human rights has not come to the defense of the smallest and most fragile who are unable to defend themselves.

Further, as well as being revered by Planned Parenthood, Clinton has greatly benefited from contributions made by the organization:

Clinton won Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award in 2009. She received more than $10,000 from the organization during two Senate runs and failed 2008 primary against President Barack Obama. She opposes limits on late-term abortion. As president, Bill Clinton vetoed a ban on partial birth abortion methods that Nucatola appeared to discuss in the video.

“The overarching mission of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the cause of reproductive freedom that you continue to advance today is as relevant in our world now as it was 100 years ago. So, I thank you,” Clinton said in a release upon winning the award. A campaign spokesman did not return a request for comment.

As of today, Clinton has not returned campaign money from Planned Parenthood.

It’s instructive to see this self-proclaimed leading human rights advocate determine what is – and isn’t – “controversial”:

Famed porn mogul Larry Flynt contributed the maximum allowed dollar amount to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign but had his $5,400 returned by the campaign, according to Federal Election Commission documents filed Wednesday night.

Flynt, who grew famous through Hustler magazine, made two contributions worth $2,700 to the Clinton campaign during the month of June. Later in the month, both contributions were returned.

Flynt had voiced his support for Clinton’s candidacy earlier this year, telling Bloomberg’s John Heileman emphatically that he was “endorsing Hillary Clinton for president!”

Flynt also said in the interview that he didn’t think Clinton needed his help, admitting that Clinton will likely want to keep her distance due to his controversial business.

“Hillary doesn’t need no help from me,” Flynt said. “All she needs to do is start fighting back.”

The Clinton campaign agreed.

  1. Hello.

    Dana (86e864)

  2. So Hillary thinks standing up for your First Amendment rights is controversial, but providing abortions is not/

    Idiosyncratic definition of controversy, to say the least.

    kishnevi (870883)

  3. As I said, kishnevi, instructive.

    And I would word it like this: Hillary Clinton Believes 1st Amendment Rights Controversial But “Crushing” Fetal Baby Parts, Not So Much.

    Makes me want to re-title post (which I didn’t like when I put it up, but couldn’t get it right…)

  8. America is going to give you conservatives a post natal abortion. Thanks to mexican american vote Mrs. Clinton wins easy in 2016. 81% of latinos now hate republicans in latest poll. Your through!

    Latina voter (7b55a9)

  9. You don’t understand at all! For Democrats, abortion is is like totally acceptable, and beyond any discussion; it just is part of life.

    But the First Amendment? Well, we know the Framers didn’t mean to include hate speech, or campaign contributions, and free exercise of religion, we know that they didn’t mean you could actually practice your religion if it upsets other people!

    OMG! I’m Mexican-American and you are not. Don’t try to speak for us. It is lie that my people hate republicans. Most of my family are also Democrats and even they don’t hate Republicans. I’d say that you have just beclowned yourself.

  12. The communists have a name for you Perry, I mean Latina voter, Useful Idiot. In almost every post you sethe hate. Why do you hate so much Perry? What happened to you in your life to cause such vile hate towards your fellow Americans? What happened to cause you to hate America so much? It’s so sad that a man of your age has been unable to mentally and emotionally evolve past the radical red 16 year old mentality. Somewhere along the line you got broken Perry, and I don’t think you could ever be fixed again. Sad really.

  14. #11 was for my own comment, Hoagie.

    felipe (56556d)

  15. felipe, Latina voter is Perry. I know him, he’s white. Crazy, but white nonetheless.

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie (f4eb27)

  16. Gahhh!I meant #13 was for #11. I’m going to go out this evening to purchase a nice single-malt scotch. I usually buy Glennfidich. I used to drink Laphroig but I fell out with it. Any suggestions” Please, nothing with the word “pig” in it.

  17. nothing compares to

  19. Felipe, if you want to treat yourself, Aberlour A’bunadh. If your budget is smaller, Auchentoshan American Oak or Deanston Virgin Oak

    kishnevi (870883)

  20. “a quiet evening alone”

    Strange, I understand the meaning of each of those words, but put them together like that and they make no sense. What on earth does it mean?

    felipe (56556d)

  21. Thanks, Kish. I’ve never tried it – I’ll get it if they have it – and since I am going to Spec’s I stand a good chance of finding it there.

    felipe (56556d)

  22. Sorry, felipe, I’m a Bourbon guy. My first load was on scotch since then I can’t even smell it.

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie (f4eb27)

  23. White House’ Josh Earnest now defending PP – even though President Obama hasn’t watched the video:

    “I haven’t spoken to the president” about the video, Earnest said.

    “I did read news reports,” Earnest said. “Planned Parenthood said they follow the highest ethical guidelines.

    Yes, I did. It sent me here

  26. Do any of these sound good to you, felipe? My palate is simple so I like Johnnie Walker Black.

  27. When I was a drunk golfer in Scotland many years ago, near my favorite golf course on earth, my cousin and I stumbled into Balblair, a distillery of Highland scotch, much different than the peaty style. Smooth as any I enjoyed. Heres the site.

    mg (31009b)

  28. Just remember that anything from the Hebrides (and a few other places in the West of the Highlands) is usually peaty. Meaning smoked, which will have a huge impact on taste.

    kishnevi (870883)

  29. Thanks, DRJ. The first scotch on the list is what I currently drink. I find it disappointing that I misspelled the name. The scotch Kish suggested is actually a blended scoth, but I am intrigued by its novelty, so it will be my first choice if Spec’s has it.

    WOW. The Glenfiddich 40 YO Single Malt Speyside Scotch Whisky looks yummy! Who am I kidding? They won’t have it.

    felipe (56556d)

  30. I actually like peaty qualities. I find it a refreshing difference from American whiskey.

    felipe (56556d)

  31. Hm, from Hillary to Planned Parenthood to First Amendment to hard liquor. I guess that sort of makes sense.

    Dana (86e864)

  32. The first scotch on the list is what I currently used to drink.

    I had to fix that.

    Refer to it as Whiskey, you must!

  38. I dispute that a Clinton believes in anything.

  39. for the right price, she’ll believe in anything,

  41. For the right price she’ll even say that Bill isn’t having sexual relations when Monica Lewinsky is honking his horn.

  42. felipe, Latina voter is Perry. I know him, he’s white. Crazy, but white nonetheless.

    Gender confusion and also masquerading as a person from a nation he’d probably do quite a bit to avoid ending up in? Yep, he’s a loony, two-faced Anglo liberal.

    Quite seriously, I can’t imagine what it must be like to be a sensible, rational, practical-minded native of a country like Mexico when interminable crud — including never-ending bouts of corruption, poverty, crime and truly brain-dead socialist/leftist voting habits — hovers all around such a person.

    Well said, but if Hillary! somehow becomes “PUS”, we will all be one step closer to finding out.

    felipe (56556d)

  44. Oh, before I forget, there will be no whiskey for me tonight. I was not successful in getting either of the whiskeys on which I had set my sights. I’ll try again tomorrow. My thanks to both Kishnevi and DRJ for the suggestions.

    felipe (56556d)

  45. There are lots of nice bourbons available at reasonable prices.

    ropelight (288e76)

  46. felipe – consider trying the Oban …

    Another harder-to-find one is called Tyndrum Gold …

    Both single malts …
