Gillibrand Compares Pro-Lifers to Racist, ‘Not Acceptable’

In a truly unbelievable clip, Senator Gillibrand quite blatantly compares the pro-life viewpoint to that of racism.

“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 OK to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic. Telling — 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. And we believe in this country in the separation of church and state, and I respect the rights of every American to hold their religious beliefs true to themselves, but our country and our Constitution has always demanded that we have a separation of church and state. And all these efforts by President Trump and other ultra-radical conservative judges and justices to impose their faith on Americans is contrary to our Constitution and that’s what this is. And so, I believe that for all of these issues, they are not issues that there is a fair other side. There is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom.”
