United States – Hillary Clinton, who served as Secretary of State for a number of years, also points to an intense disappointment in the Democratic Party for its reaction to the recent Supreme Court ruling on abortion rights, referring to the party’s years-long obliviousness of the gradual erosion of the rights protected under Roe v. Wade.

Praise for Conservative Persistence and Democratic Complacency

Clinton offers begrudging praise for the relentless determination of anti-abortion factions, contrasting it with what she perceives as complacency and lack of organization within Democratic ranks, urging for a more proactive approach to safeguarding reproductive rights.

Urgent Call to Action and Election Significance

When naming the upcoming election ”existential” for women’s rights, Clinton emphasizes the need to be more vigilant and to organise an active response to challenges that undermine reproductive rights, predicting future threats to contraceptive rights and demanding to join forces against conservatives.

Living precedents: past campaign and voter disconnection

Echoing the sentiments learned from past campaigns, Clinton hints at one of the most important factors that had an impact when selling the issue to the public – the actual threats felt to abortion rights and the discrepancy between her message and the perceived threat to Roe v. Wade.
