In a new video she released today defending funding for Planned Parenthood even after four shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, Hillary Clinton went after three of the pro-life Republican candidates for president.
During the video, she attacks three pro-life candidates by name for opposing Planned Parenthood funding: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
She said: “Unfortunately, these attacks aren’t new, they’re more of the same, we’ve seen them in Wisconsin where Governor Walker defunded Planned Parenthood and left women across the state stranded with nowhere else to turn,” Clinton said. “We’ve seen them in Florida where Jeb Bush funneled millions of taxpayer dollars into abstinence only programs while gutting funds for crucial family planning programs. And we’ve seen them in Texas where Gov. Perry drastically cut funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings and then signed legislation that forced health centers across the state to close their doors.”
In an email to LifeNews.com, Governor Perry responded.
“Secretary Clinton should explain to the American people why she supports an organization that rips apart and sells the body parts of aborted babies,” Perry said.
He continued: “I am proud to have defunded Planned Parenthood in Texas, and support Congressional efforts to defund them at the federal level. I have also called for the revocation of Planned Parenthood’s federal non-profit status. My policies in Texas have proven that you can protect women’s health while also protecting human life.”
Perry’s zinger against Hlllary follows on the heels of another zinger he made during an MSNBC interview in which he defended de-funding Planned Parenthood.
