Carly Fiorina responded to a biased abortion question about her position on the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal during the Fox News undercard debate Thursday night.
Moderator Martha MacCallum asked Fiorina the following question:
You waded into the Planned Parenthood story early on – you took some heat for it. Now the people who shot that undercover video are the ones who got indicted and Planned Parenthood is untouched. Planned Parenthood’s been crowing about this. Any regrets about this?
“Well, you know Hillary Clinton hasn’t been indicted either, so that tells us a lot about our justice system in this country,” Fiorina asserted. “But, look, the facts of Planned Parenthood have not changed, folks, and I will not be rendered silent on this issue or any other issue and it doesn’t matter what stage I’m on.”
Here are the facts: Planned Parenthood engages in partial birth abortion, in late-term abortion. They alter those abortion techniques to harvest and sell body parts. They have admitted they’re not going to accept compensation for this anymore. The reality is most Americans find this practice horrific. Most Americans find horrific that Hillary Clinton’s position on this is: It’s not a life until it’s born.
Most Americans find horrific Hillary Clinton’s position or the Democrat Party’s position that a young woman does not need her mother’s permission to get an abortion. But if you are 13 years old, you can get an abortion but you can’t go to a tanning salon without your mother’s permission.
A President Fiorina…in a President Fiorina budget there will not be one dime for Planned Parenthood – although there will be a lot of money for women’s health. And we will finally pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
“I will always stand for life and religious liberty because this is about the character of our nation,” Fiorina said.
