In an interview with Fox News, presidential hopeful Chris Christie (R-New Jersey) said Hillary Clinton is a disgrace for comparing pro-lifers to terrorist groups.
Clinton said the following on the campaign trail in August: “I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception, or anyone who’s ever been protected by an HIV test. Now, extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups.”
She added, “We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out-of-date and out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st-century America. We’re going forward. We’re not going back.”
In response to Clinton’s remarks, Christie said, “That’s a disgrace. She’s a disgrace. … I’m not going to be somebody who lets somebody stand up and call my party terrorists. She’s a disgrace for saying that, for comparing Republicans to terrorist groups — that’s awful. […] Can you imagine if we compared the Democratic Party to terrorist groups? Can you imagine the outrage in the mainstream media for that? Yet, she stood up and said that Republicans are like terrorist groups.”
He continued, “Well, here’s what I don’t think mainstream America’s for, I don’t think mainstream America is for an organization getting federal funding, who kills children in the womb, in a particular way, so that it maximizes the value of their body parts on the open market for sale for profit.”
“Now, if Mrs. Clinton thinks that’s what mainstream America likes, I’m happy to have the debate with her, but of course, she won’t even answer those questions, because she doesn’t even want to talk about what’s really going on at Planned Parenthood. She just wants to talk about these vague generalities about war on women, but I’m not going to be someone who’s going to stand up and allow her to call my party ‘terrorists,’ because we’re not,” Christie concluded.
As LifeNews previously reported, Christie asked the former Secretary of State in a video message if she supported killing children and selling babies. The New Jersey Governor also said he supported defunding Planned Parenthood and indicated that he believes their funding should be sent to legitimate health care centers in the country. He said, “I saw a video today from Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that is truly disturbing. In trying to address the current controversy on whether there should be federal funding for Planned Parenthood Clinics, Secretary Clinton says that Republicans are against funding for women’s healthcare. Well nothing could be further from the truth and let me use my state, New Jersey, as an example.”
Christie added, “We generously fund federally qualified health clinics throughout New Jersey, which provides excellent care for women and men in our state who need it. Everything from cancer screenings and mammograms for women to prostate cancer screenings for men to diabetes treatment and to everything in between that can lead folks to greater healthcare available to them and can lead to greater health results for each and every person who walks through the door.”
“Now you see, the real issue here that Secretary Clinton won’t address—is the conduct of Planned Parenthood. Do you think that Planned Parenthood should be able to use federal funding to kill children in the womb in a specific way, so that they can maximize the value of body parts that they then sell on the open market for profit? I’ll tell you that I think most common sense Americans believe that that conduct is reprehensible, should not occur at all, and certainly should not be funded with tax payer dollars,” the governor continues.
He concluded, “Now Secretary Clinton, why don’t you answer this question: Do you support the conduct of Planned Parenthood in the killing of children in the womb in a way that maximizes their body parts for sale on the open market?”
