Washington, D.C. — Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, said this today:
“In 1995, I had the honor of representing Concerned Women for America as a Non-Government Organization at the 4th U.N. World Conference on Women in Beijing, China. I listened to then First Lady of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton, passionately declare that ‘women’s rights are human rights, and human rights are women’s rights.’ As our Declaration of Independence corroborates, we are ‘endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights.’
“Mrs. Clinton, however, cannot possibly raise her fist to fight for the rights of women around the world with one hand while palming money from those same governments who exploit them with the other. Concerned Women for America strongly believes in the inalienable rights of women, including the right to life, and calls on Mrs. Clinton to grant the $10-$25 million donated to the Clinton Foundation by the Saudi government to Samaritan’s Purse, which is on the ground around the world caring for women abused by Islamic terrorists and fascist regimes.”
