After the abortion business was exposed selling the bodies of aborted babies, Hilary Clinton said Planned Parenthood provided an “important service.” She also said the abortion company provides life-saving care and criticized pro-lifers for attacking women’s health.
Today, Clinton came out with a video announcing her opposition to the current legislation (S. 1881) before the U.S. Senate that would completely defund Planned Parenthood. Ironically, the video supporting funding for America’s biggest abortion business features a couple holding a newborn baby (below).
“I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions,” she said about abortion.
At no point in the video does she mention Planned Parenthood’s recent scandal or the countless reasons why they should be defunded and placed under investigation.
She says, “Republicans like Scott Walker and Jeb Bush are calling to defund PP,the country’s leading provider of reproductive health care. And they are joined by Republicans in Congress who will not waste a minute on voting to make that happen. If this feels like a full-on assault on women’s health— that’s because it is. When politicians talk about defunding Planned Parenthood they are talking about blocking millions of women, men and young people from life saving preventive care. Cancer screenings, breast exams, birth-control.”
Then she goes on to say that Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider and that Republicans have led efforts in states across the country to defund them before. Somehow Clinton overlooked the fact that Planned Parenthood has a history of hurting women in botched abortions, stealing money from taxpayer programs and performing abortions on abused minors without parental consent. She also overlooked the fact that the new videos confirm that their motives are, at the very least, questionable.
Clinton concluded, “When they attack women’s health, they attack America’s health and it’s wrong and were not going to let them get away with it. We’re not going back. We’re going to fight back. I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to maker her own health care decisions.”
However, there is one good thing that comes from her announcement. Now no one can deny that she supports Planned Parenthood even though they are selling aborted babies’ body parts, altering medical procedures to obtain salable organs and joking about it over lunch. Apparently that doesn’t matter and she’s still “proud to stand with Planned Parenthood.”
