Monday at a campaign rally in Manhattan during a speech focusing on woman’s rights, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Republicans “want to strip” women of their rights and vowed she would be the protector of those right if elected.
Clinton said, “And practically everything I said is opposed by the Republicans They don’t think we need to raise the minimum wage. Donald Trump says wages are too high in America right now. They don’t believe equal pay is a problem. They sure don’t want to move toward paid family leave. So this is not just a free choice. There are consequences for how we vote and the agenda we put forward. And the other point about what’s happening with the Republicans, as I mentioned earlier, is they truly want to strip us of the rights we already have. And I’ll tell you where I stand, because it is in opposition to where they stand. I will defend a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, and I will defend Planned Parenthood.”
