Kirsten Gillibrand’s presidential campaign is a massive dud. As a result, she is taking any and all media appearances offered to her and saying outrageous things to stay in the news cycle.
She recently suggested in an interview that pro-life people shouldn’t be eligible to be judges.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Gillibrand: Pro-Life People Are Ineligible to Be Judges
who are pro-life should not be judges.
“These are personal decisions. They are health care decisions. They are economic decisions. They are moral decisions. A woman has a right to make all those decisions,” Gillibrand said in an interview on New Hampshire Public Radio.
“And if you are telling me today, that women in America don’t have that right. I think you are so backward-looking that those judges and justices are not the type of people we should be appointing because it is too backward-looking.”
Gillibrand sparked controversy this week when she compared pro-life beliefs to racism and suggested the pro-life viewpoint is “not acceptable” during an interview with the Des Moines Register.
“I think there’s some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable. Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic.
Asking someone to appoint someone who takes away basic human rights of any group of people in America—I don’t think that those are political issues anymore,” Gillibrand said…
“I don’t think it’s legitimate to appoint a judge who doesn’t believe in women’s equality. I don’t because it’s settled precedent,” Gillibrand said.

People aren’t buying the argument Gillibrand is making about pro-life people.

Kirsten Gillibrand Compares Pro-Life Views To Racism
During an interview with the Des Moines Register, Kirsten Gillibrand compared pro-life beliefs to racism.
“There’s no moral equivalency when it comes to racism. And I do not think there’s a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom,” Gillibrand said.
The latest Marist poll shows that a 47 percent of Americans call themselves pro-life, while 47 percent consider themselves pro-choice. Seventy-one percent of Americans oppose abortion after a child reaches 20 weeks of gestation. Are the majority of Americans morally equivalent to racists? Or has Kirsten Gillibrand gotten her moral understanding of abortion precisely backward?
She’s running a terrible campaign.
Don’t be surprised if she’s the first to drop out.
