Krauthammer: Planned Parenthood Video Will Affect Elections, Put Dems on Defensive

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,”  Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said the Planned Parenthood scandal resulting from the release of recent videos showing their doctors discussing the sale of fetal tissue will put the issue of abortion “on the table” in this election cycle.

“It will probably have the effect in the short run in this election cycle of putting the issue on the table — the abortion issue on the table in a way that Democrats are going to be on the defensive. Do you believe in this?” he said. “Do you believe that this is OK? But in a sense, it kind of redefines back room abortion. It used to mean illegal abortions. But now that abortion is legal, we have opened the door on what really happens in the back room.”
