Catholic Bishop Joseph Strickland of Texas begged people to ignore Hillary Clinton’s recent comments comparing those who speak out against abortion to Russian troops raping women in Ukraine.

While speaking with PBS host Christiane Amanpour ahead of the Women’s Voices Summit in Arkansas, Clinton said that women’s healthcare is under attack by “political and cultural forces,” similar to those in Iran, Afghanistan, and Sudan.

“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,” she added.

Strickland took exception to Clinton’s remarks slamming those who hold anti-abortion views, tweeting a plea to ignore them.

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

Abortion became a hotly debated topic heading into the midterm elections following the 6-3 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade, returning the fight over abortion rights to the states.
