A.B. Stoddard, Associate Editor of The Hill, argued Democrats “who are silent” on Planned Parenthood’s “ghastly” behavior “stay silent at their peril” on Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Stoddard said, “the fallout is on the Democrats. This is not only ghastly, but it’s supposed to be illegal, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) came out to say that he didn’t find any evidence that anything — any laws were broken. But, the Democrats aren’t saying anything. And this is why this is going to be a huge issue, it’s a way in this election cycle to — if a pro-choice Democrat can’t come out and say, ‘I’m pro-choice, but this is really wrong. And I’m sickened by this,’ then this is an opening for Republicans to this issue in this election. It is not, ‘Let’s talk about abortion rights or Roe v. Wade.’ It is ‘Let’s investigate whether or not they are selling body parts at Planned Parenthood.’ And the Democrats, and it’s not just Hillary Clinton, it’s everybody in the party who are silent on this, stay silent at their peril. This is going to be a huge issue when Congress returns in the fall.”
