Hillary Clinton called the Planned Parenthood videos "disturbing." But somehow this doesn't change her talking points. She even trots out the whole "safe, legal, and rare" lie.
Now, my favorite part is that her allegiance to PP is so strong that she can't even admit to having seen the videos so she says she has seen pictures from the video. What? Seriously, what does that even mean?
This is the lady that blamed a terrorist attack on a video that nobody ever saw. But she watched that one. Weird that she hasn't found the time to watch the Planned Parenthood videos, huh?
The Union Times Leader:
Calling them “disturbing,” Hillary Clinton said undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue raise questions about the process nationwide.“I have seen pictures from them and I obviously find them disturbing,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said during a sit-down interview Tuesday with the New Hampshire Union Leader.
“Planned Parenthood is answering questions and will continue to answer questions. I think there are two points to make,” Clinton said. “One, Planned Parenthood for more than a century has done a lot of really good work for women: cancer screenings, family planning, all kinds of health services. And this raises not questions about Planned Parenthood so much as it raises questions about the whole process, that is, not just involving Planned Parenthood, but many institutions in our country.”“And if there’s going to be any kind of congressional inquiry, it should look at everything and not just one part of it,” she said.
Clinton addressed the controversy after the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos of a Planned Parenthood representative discussing fetal tissue extraction, cost and transportation.Republican presidential hopefuls have condemned it and called for public defunding of Planned Parenthood...
Clinton, long a supporter of abortion rights, was asked whether she is concerned the videos will jeopardize funding for abortion services and women’s health care. Funding today is at no more risk than it has been for years, she said.“I’m well aware that passions are very high,” Clinton said. “I have said for more than 22 years that abortion should be legal, safe and rare. As First Lady, I led an effort to try to lower the number of teenage pregnancies and we succeeded, and as President I will continue to work toward that so that women are fully empowered, they can afford to make responsible decisions, and I hope we will be successful at that.”
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the great pro-life organization SBA List said, “Hillary Clinton’s admission that the videos are ‘disturbing,’ and her return to the long forgotten mantra of ‘safe, legal and rare’ reveal just how troubling the abortion issue is playing out for Democrats this election cycle. Democrats have painted themselves into a corner by supporting abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, paid for by taxpayer dollars.”
