(CBrief) – A Catholic bishop is tearing into twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton after she compared the abortion debate in America to Russian soldiers sexually assaulting women in Ukraine. While speaking at the Women’s Voice Summit at the Clinton Presidential Center in Arkansas, Clinton went on to claim that America was like Sudan and Afghanistan with regard to abortion.

“We have come a long way on so many fronts but we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been taken for granted by too many people is under attack: literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine — where rape is a tactic of war — or under attack by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s healthcare and bodily autonomy,” Clinton said. “It’s so shocking to think that in any way we’re related to poor Afghanistan and Sudan, but as an advanced economy as we allegedly are, on this measure, we, unfortunately, are rightly put with them. This struggle is between autocracy and democracy from our country to places we can’t even believe we’re being compared to,” she added.

In response, Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, responded by encouraging people to ignore Clinton.

“Please, please don’t listen to this evil woman,” Strickland tweeted. “Her lies and immorality need to be silenced for the good of humanity.”
