A brilliant and heartfelt response from Hillary...

At a hearing last week, Rep. Christopher Smith (R-NJ) asked Hillary Clinton if the Obama administration was planning to attempt to weaken the pro-life laws of Latin American and African countries and if the terms "reproductive health", "reproductive services", and "reproductive rights" included abortion.

Her response:



All I can say is, it feels pretty damn good to have a feminist secretary of state. Finally, an administration that actually makes it a priority to protect women's rights in the U.S. AND abroad. Thank you to Hillary and a big thank you to the Obama administration.

I've written before, but I've been on a bit of a hiatus for the past couple months. I've loved reading both of your posts though, keep it up.
