DERRY, NH, February 5, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Hillary Clinton's pledge to “defend” abortion-on-demand and support Planned Parenthood won her a rousing response at a Democratic town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday – but not everyone was applauding.

A viral video shows a priest in a clerical collar shaking his head in disagreement as Clinton says, “We’re going to defend a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. We’re going to defend Planned Parenthood.”

“We're going to defend marriage equality and end discrimination against LGBT Americans,” she continues. “And we're going to take on the gun lobby.”

The clergyman, who confirmed he is a Roman Catholic priest in New Hampshire but did not wish for his name to be revealed, told The Blaze that he disagreed with Clinton's views on abortion but actually came to ask about another topic.


He said he intended to ask the former secretary of state: “ISIS is targeting Christians, Yazidis, Kurdish Muslims and other religious minorities in Syria and Iraq for murder, torture, rape and sexual enslavement. Recently, Secretary Clinton, you’ve acknowledged what is happening as genocide. If elected president, what would you do to end this genocide? And specifically what would you do to get help to those groups most targeted by ISIS?”

On Wednesday night, Clinton said she would impose a “litmus test” on potential Supreme Court nominees, saying they “must preserve Roe v. Wade and federally imposed same-sex “marriage” on all 50 states.
