CNN International journalist Christiane Amanpour feared that the United States was on the verge of being seen by other countries as a “repressive regime” that did not support women’s rights, due to the decision of the Supreme Court on Abortion last week overturning Roe v. Wade.
Amanpour was reacting to President Biden’s responses to reporters on abortion protections after the landmark ruling. She reported that world leaders were shocked by attacks on women’s rights and democracy.
“[T]hey expressed sadness, concern and deep concern for the specific overthrow of Roe V. Wade and the — what it means for women’s rights,” she said, naming the downfall of various European leaders. The CNN anchor suggested that the United States would soon be viewed as a repressive regime on the world stage.
ABORTION: MEDIA ACCUSE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE OF LIING ABOUT ROE V. WADE, BUT CLAIM IS DOUBT
“And let’s not forget that I covered repressive regimes that rolled back women’s rights throughout my career, never in the history of women’s rights in America have we seen such a reversal in a developed country. It just didn’t happen, and the rest of the world is watching this very, very closely as America talks about, you know, building democracy overseas, it really has to happen also at home, especially for women’s rights,” she lamented.
Soon after, Amanpour expanded on her emotional plea by saying the Taliban would no longer even respect the United States’ commitment to women’s rights.
“Again, I would also say that by way of conclusion, American democracy and the state of American women’s rights are really under scrutiny, not only by the rest of the West as these meetings take place, but by the rest of the world. You think the Taliban are actually going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re going to buy into what you’re telling us for recognition based on what, you know, what we’re doing about women “?” she said skeptically.
“This is a really serious moment. For American women and for America’s ability to stand up as a democracy that respects the rights of every voter,” Amanpour said.
BIDEN TO SUPPORT END OF MANDATORY TO PROTECT ACCESS TO ABORTION
The CNN reporter got himself in hot water for comparing the United States to murderous regimes before.
After the 2020 presidential election, she said on CNN that the Trump presidency reminded her of the Holocaust.
“This week, 82 years ago, Kristallnacht took place. It was the Nazi warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against an entire identity and, in this tower of burning books, this has led to an attack on facts, knowledge, history and evidence,” Amanpour began, before comparing the atrocity to the Trump presidency.
“After four years of Donald Trump’s modern assault on those same values, the Biden-Harris team promises a return to normalcy,” she added, in comments for which she later apologized.
AFTER ABORTION RULING, MEDIA EXPERTS, HOLLYWOOD CHARACTERS SAID ‘GUNS HAVE MORE RIGHTS THAN WOMEN’
Biden told reporters at the NATO summit that he supports removing the Senate filibuster so Congress passes legislation codifying Roe v. Wade, guaranteeing abortion rights in all 50 states.
A previous attempt by Democrats to codify abortion rights was blocked in the Senate by Republicans and moderate Democrat Joe Manchin, who said his party’s bill goes well beyond what Roe v. Wade was authorizing.
