After the release of yet another shocking undercover video of a Planned Parenthood official negotiating the sale of body parts, Carly Fiorina has responded to the issue with a video of her own. In the video, Fiorina stands with pro-life leaders: Rev. Dean Nelson, Marjorie Dannenfelser, Catherine Davis, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, Lori Hoye, and Pastor Walter Hoye. Fiorina takes the opportunity to lambaste Democrats for standing up for abortion rather than standing up for women:
These pro-life leaders are standing with me today to decry the moral depravity that we have seen now from Planned Parenthood. It doesn’t matter whether you think you’re pro-choice or pro-life. Every woman and every man has to look at these videos and think: What has gone wrong in our nation? The hypocrisy of telling women over and over again that their unborn children are not life and yet talking calmly about how to preserve the organs of that life to save another life. The cruelty of denying women over and over again ultrasounds so that they can see the life they carry within them and yet using that same technology to make sure that organs are preserved so that they can be presumably sold to save others.
This is a terrible moment. And it is made more terrible by the absolute deafening silence of the Democratic Party. Democrats have always fought for a policy that says it is not a life until it leaves the hospital. Hillary Clinton has fought to preserve that policy. And we now have a moment in this nation to take some real action here. We can decide finally to defund Planned Parenthood. And the Senate can decide, as well, to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
