On Tuesday night pro-abortion failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton celebrated abortion at Planned Parenthood’s Gala honoring its 100 years of pushing its abortion agenda.
Clinton received the company’s “champion of the century” award and slammed pro-lifers using sexist terms.
She called pro-life advocates “groups of men” trying to strip away Women’s Health protections. Here’s more:
“As we speak, politicians in Washington are still doing everything they can to roll back the rights and progress we’ve fought so hard for over the last century,” she said, according to CNN. “I mean, could you believe those the photos of groups of men around that conference table deciding to strip away coverage for pregnancy and maternity care?”
Clinton pointed out that Planned Parenthood is a living embodiment of one of the Handmaid’s Tale’s most recognizable slogans: “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.” Basically, Clinton is saying Planned Parenthood hasn’t let the bastards grind them down.
Clinton addressed the crowd at the Planned Parenthood celebration, recalling the strength and resolve with which the organization has defended reproductive rights and healthcare over the last 100 years. The speech came just a week after Margaret Atwood’s iconic dystopian novel premiered as a television show, which the Huffington Post reports Clinton pointed out is an uncanny coincidence.
“We come tonight to celebrate the last 100 years, the progress that so many generations have fought so hard for,” she said. “What a time it is to be holding this centennial. Just ask those who’ve been watching The Handmaid’s Tale, a book I read and was captivated by years ago.”
Specifically, Clinton pointed to “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum,” a phrase the book’s main character, Offred, finds engraved in her room that gives her strength. Offred is essentially imprisoned by a new regime that creates a values system in which women exist primarily for reproduction. The phrase translates to “don’t let the bastards grind you down.”
“To paraphrase Margaret Atwood, ‘We can never let them grind us down,’” Hillary said.
