It has been one week since the Supreme Court made their historic ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, making abortion a state issue. During that time, there have been numerous protests, dozens of arrests, and countless video uploading online giving a sea of opinions on the matter. But while many of the videos spread nothing more than outlandish theories and fear porn, CNN International’s Christiane Amanpour recently suggested that the decision made by the Supreme Court could lead to the Taliban losing respect for the United States.
Appearing on “CNN Newsroom” on Thursday, Amanpour explained how the ruling was “really serious” given that it caused America to lose its “ability to hold its head up as a democracy that respects the rights of every constituent. I would also say that as a conclusion, American democracy and the state of American women’s rights are being really looked at, not just by the rest of the West, as these meetings are happening, but by the rest of the world.”
The CNN regular didn’t stop there as she literally admitted, “You think the Taliban are going to actually say, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re going to adhere to what you tell us for recognition based on what, you know, on what we do about women?’ This is really serious, this moment, for American women and for America’s ability to hold its head up as a democracy that respects the rights of every constituent.”
Having covered numerous countries who have attacked women’s rights, Amanpour explained, “[N]ever in the history of women’s rights in America have we seen such a reversal in a developed country. It just hasn’t happened.”
Users online shredded the statement, writing, “Amanpour, you think that the Taliban really respects the US after the US let them run roughshod over the evacuation of that AirBase? Is Blowing up a bunch of people a token of their high esteem for the US?”
Another person asked, “I assume she is talking about the Taliban who deny girls education and flog women who do not cover their entire bodies so that they cannot be seen? This woman is seriously deranged.”
And one concluded, “The Taliban have NEVER respected the United States. They feared Donald Trump and they laugh at Joe Biden after he fled from Afghanistan and left them Billions in free equipment. They don’t give two s***s about some Supreme Court abortion decision. What a complete clown.”
