Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina criticized Democrats for their “deafening silence” over Planned Parenthood’s “moral depravity,” “hypocrisy,” and “cruelty” in a video released on Tuesday.
Fiorina blasted Planned Parenthood for its “moral depravity,” adding “It doesn’t matter whether you think you’re pro-choice or pro-life. Every woman, every man has to look at this videos and think ‘What has gone wrong in our nation?’ The hypocrisy of telling women, over and over again, that their unborn children are not life, and yet talking calmly about how to preserve the organs of that life to save another life. The cruelty of denying women over and over again, ultrasounds, so that they can see the life they carry within them, and yet using that same technology to make sure that organs are preserved so that they can be presumably sold to save others.”
Fiorina continued, “This is a terrible moment, and it is made even more terrible by the absolute deafening silence of the Democratic Party. Democrats have always fought for a policy that says it is not life until it leaves the hospital. Hillary Clinton has fought to preserve that policy. And we now have a moment in this nation to take some real action here. We can decide, finally, to defund Planned Parenthood. And the Senate can decide, as well, to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”
