The organization has been the subject of ongoing controversy since a sting video was released that alleges it profits from the sale of fetal tissue.
The White House signaled President Barack Obama would sign the measure, called a continuing resolution, into law – if the House steps aside from the fight sought by tea party Republicans over “defunding” Planned Parenthood. She refused. On, Sunday, NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd whether she has seen the footage. “I don’t support the butchering of babies, and you ought to go look at those videos”.
“No, not at all“, Fiorina responded.
“We were not elected to shut down the government”.
“Planned Parenthood has been around for a long time, Planned Parenthood has weathered many of these kinds of false attacks”.
The “hideous reality”, she said, is that “this is happening in America today and taxpayers are paying for it”. This is not about being pro-life or pro-choice.
Fiorina told moderator Chuck Todd he missed an opportunity earlier on the same program when he interviewed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck”, Fiorina said, talking over the anchor.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who’s running for president, received boisterous applause and a standing ovation when he informed a crowd at the Values Voter Summit in Washington that Boehner will resign. Does Hillary Clinton think this is not happening? “This a big political rig”, Fiorina said, jabbing her finger in Shireman’s face. It is a reality.
Democrats are expected to defeat a measure that strips away what amounts to about one-third of the budget for the women’s health organization that performs abortions. John Boehner is reportedly planning to give up his seat in Congress by the end of October. “I believe this is something we must stand up and fight for because it is about the character of our nation”.
Planned Parenthood supporters interrupted Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina’s tailgating event Saturday outside Kinnick Stadium, arguing that the candidate doesn’t support women’s rights and access to health care.
At one point during the protest, a few condoms were tossed into the group surrounding Fiorina.
A devout Catholic, Mr Boehner said he decided to act following the “awesome sight” of the pope’s historic address to congress and a moving moment with the pontiff afterwards.
“I defend and will continue to defend Planned Parenthood because I think that the services that Planned Parenthood provides are broad and necessary for millions of American women”.
