The monotonously pro-abortion Richmond Times-Dispatch calls it a “guest column.” Inquiring minds might wonder who, exactly, is Atima Omara?

“[T]he Chair of Planned Parenthood Metro Washington Action Fund Board of Directors and Immediate Past President of the Young Democrats of America.”

Okay, fits right in, but exactly why is she writing a combination Jeremiah warning against the infidels (that would be us) and all-hands-on-deck plea to support Hillary Clinton, in a Richmond, Virginia, newspaper?

“She was raised in the Richmond area.”

Oh, that explains it.

We’re told right out of the box, “Anti-choice advocates will stop at nothing to prevent a woman from having access to abortion and accurate reproductive health information. ” Omara uses her remaining 675 words to crank up the hysteria meter of her fellow pro-abortionists (and to justify the headline, “Roe v. Wade at stake in the 2016 election”).

Let’s skip Roe v. Wade for a moment. Everybody who knows anything about Hillary Clinton knows that were she president, she would do everything in her power not only to preserve Roe but expand its contours and nominate justices to the Supreme Court who would roll back the protective laws we have passed.

It is that latter point about which the American people must be educated. Why? Because it fleshes out the barebones gibberish about “reproductive rights.” Let’s just take just one example from this “guest column.”

According to Omara–and according to Mrs. Clinton herself–Clinton would if she could eliminate the Hyde Amendment. First enacted in 1976, the Hyde Amendment is an annual appropriations rider which eliminates public funding for abortion except in the cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. Prior to its passage the federal Medicaid program paid for 300,000 abortions a year. Conservative estimates are that there are well over one million people are alive today because of the Hyde Amendment.

Opposition to federal funding of abortion is massive–which means nothing to Clinton.

By the way, it’s also useful to remember what Clinton said last August. It’s a great gauge of how she thinks, especially of anyone who disagrees with her on abortion. Here’s the lead from the CNN story:

Republican presidential candidates are striking back Friday after Hillary Clinton compared some of them who hold conservative views on abortion and women’s reproductive rights to “terrorist groups.”

“Terrorist groups”? A rather extreme remark, wouldn’t you say?

We will keep you updated on each and every new (or old) comment by Mrs. Clinton or her supporters. They are quite a lot.
