Within minutes of Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa caucuses Monday night, Planned Parenthood began attacking the pro-life GOP candidate on Twitter:

While attacking Cruz, Planned Parenthood took the opportunity to slam Mike Huckabee, who suspended his campaign after the Iowa results came in, as well:

Cruz excoriated the Republican leadership in the House and Senate in September for failing to “lift a finger to defend life” by eliminating taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

The nation is about to “fund 100 percent of Planned Parenthood with taxpayer funding,” Cruz declared. It is an organization under “multiple criminal investigations,” he said, referring to the recent undercover videos exposing the abortion business’s apparent practices of selling the body parts of aborted babies and altering the position of babies during abortion in order to harvest the most intact organs.

Cruz added that Democrats refused to watch the videos “because Planned Parenthood has become nothing more than an arm of the Democrat party.”

“I encourage every American to watch these videos,” he said, urging Americans, “Ask yourself, ‘Are these my values? Is this what I believe?’”
