After 7 Debates, Media Hasn’t Asked Clinton and Sanders About Their Extreme Abortion Views

They support abortion on demand. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are perfectly content with virtually unlimited abortions up to birth for any reasons. But the mainstream media, after seven debates, has yet to ask a single question on the issue of abortion.

Even the left-wing Huffington Post is dismayed.

Sunday evening’s Democratic presidential debate in Flint, Michigan, was the seventh to conclude without a single question about abortion access.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) both oppose Republican-backed restrictions on abortion and support broadening access to contraception. The networks’ reluctance to ask them about reproductive health suggests they think agreement would make for a boring question, even though they ask the candidates about issues on which they agree all the time. Sanders and Clinton’s Republican counterparts, who all oppose abortion to varying degrees, have been asked about abortion and Planned Parenthood in multiple debates.

The dearth of reproductive health questions in the Democratic debates has inspired a Twitter campaign, #AskAboutAbortion. The trend has also confused anti-abortion and abortion rights advocates, as both camps see it as a crucial issue that the candidates should have an opportunity to address.

The pro-abortion web site suggests Hilary Clinton is the more vocally pro-abortion of the two, saying that she has pressed more fervently for overturning legal protections stopping taxpayer funding of abortions.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

The candidates have taken different approaches to talking about abortion on the campaign trail. While both have said they would repeal the Hyde Amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortion, only Clinton has done this at rallies, candidate forums and in interviews. Sanders has said he would repeal Hyde in statements and on Twitter, but not as vocally as Clinton.

Clinton and the Planned Parenthood abortion business are joined at the hip financially. The likely Democratic presidential nominee and the nation’s biggest abortion business are best buddies but new reports provide a more detail analysis of just how closely linked Clinton is to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood has already announced it will spend as much as $20 million helping Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Now, as the Washington Free Beacon reports, Clinton’s campaign is sending the abortion corporation thousands of dollars in campaign funds in reimbursement for “staff time” from Planned Parenthood officials.

As LifeNews previously reported, Planned Parenthood officials sent emails to Hillary Clinton’s private email address on her infamous home email server. One of the email to Clinton comes from the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which is facing intense scrutiny for selling the body parts of aborted babies.

Meanwhile, the daughter of Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards, has worked on a number of pro-abortion campaigns and is currently helping out her mother’s friend, Hillary Clinton.

Lily Adams joined the Clinton campaign last spring as Iowa’s press secretary. Adams is Richards’ oldest daughter and she previously worked as the Deputy Communications Director for the Democratic National Committee.

As LifeNews previously reported, one of Hillary’s donations came from the CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), Vicki Cowart. Cowart’s affiliate is featured in two videos released by the Center of Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the price of babies victimized in abortion. In one video, PPRM’s Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde explains how affiliates can get around laws that ban selling aborted babies for compensation. She says, “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing. If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”

Planned Parenthood’s international arm received $26 million in foreign-aid money during Clinton’s last two years at the State Department. Unfortunately, the only reason Planned Parenthood is eligible to receive foreign funds is because President Obama overturned the Mexico City Policy, which was put back in place during Bush’s administration.

A previous report also revealed that the Clinton’s have received over $67,000 from Planned Parenthood during their political careers, and that Hillary received nearly $12,000 from their employees specifically for her presidential campaign. Interestingly, one of Hillary’s donations came from the CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), Vicki Cowart.

As LifeNews previously reported, Cowart’s affiliate is featured in the last two videos released by the Center of Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the price of babies victimized in abortion. In one video, PPRM’s Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde explains how affiliates can get around laws that ban selling aborted babies for compensation. She says, “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing. If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”

Clinton ultimately fundraised off of the expose’ videos after defending Planned Parenthood.
