MANCHESTER, N.H. – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie indicates that he was appalled by the investigative project surrounding Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of body parts of unborn children, suggesting that a criminal investigation was certainly possible as a result of the video tapes that have been released so far.
When asked about whether or not Planned Parenthood should be criminally prosecuted as a result of the investigation, Christie admitted as a former federal prosecutor that it was “certainly worthy of inquiry.”
“If I were a U.S. Attorney, would that be something worthy of inquiry? Sure,” he said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in New Hampshire. “And then you see where the facts lead.”
He said that he didn’t know all the facts about the pro-abortion corporations’ practices.
Christie said that he had personally watched the first two video tapes released by the Center for Medical Progress, but admitted that he hadn’t yet seen the third video, which raised even more questions about the ethics of the pro-abortion corporation.
He said that pro-life activists were right to be morally outraged by the material revealed in the videos.
“This is an awfully serious issue, they’re absolutely right,” he said. “The American people should be sickened by what’s being talked about on there, the harvesting of body parts, I just think it’s sickening. That’s a life.”
Christie has vetoed funds for Planned Parenthood six different times in six years in New Jersey, and vowed to do the same if elected president.
“I just don’t think that the organization has any business getting federal money,” calling that decision an “easy call as president.”
Democrats, he pointed out, appeared afraid to discuss the tapes, because they couldn’t defend the activity that was exposed by the investigation.
“There’s no defense for it,” he said. “They don’t want to attack an organization that supports them so vehemently.”
