Hillary Still Defends Planned Parenthood

She plainly stated the ongoing series of shocking undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue was “disturbing.” She noted that is raises serious questions about the entire process on a national basis. However, her subsequent comments were deplorable as she then turned the tables to heartily defend Planned Parenthood and even mentioned her longstanding connection with them.

Clinton stated flatly, “I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing”.

The Democratic presidential frontrunner then went on:

“Planned Parenthood is answering questions and will continue to answer questions. I think there are two points to make. One, Planned Parenthood for more than a century has done a lot of really good work for women: cancer screenings, family planning, all kinds of health services. And this raises not questions about Planned Parenthood so much as it raises questions about the whole process, that is, not just involving Planned Parenthood, but many institutions in our country.”

 “And if there’s going to be any kind of congressional inquiry, it should look at everything and not just one (organization),” she said. – To see more of her commentary click here.

It would appear that Hillary is doubling down on her stance, believing that this situation will either blow over, drawing attention away from the more personal issues dogging her, or that her base of support will stand by her through this latest buffeting of her shaky campaign. Time, and more videos, will tell.
