Debunking The Republican Liar Carly Fiorina – ‘Hillary Clinton Calls Out Carly Fiorina’s Planned Parenthood Lies’
Oh boy! More Republicans just making stuff up to feed their low infornmation base.
Mitt Romney would be so proud.
‘Fetal cells were used to develop the original polio vaccine and are still used to make vaccines for rubella, shingles, chickenpox and an experimental Ebola vaccine. The tissue is critical for studying conditions that affect the health of fetuses and newborn infants, brain injuries in the womb that lead to cerebral palsy, and eye conditions that lead to macular degeneration’.
‘Researchers also use it to develop treatments for H.I.V., end-stage breast cancer, diabetes and Parkinson’s, among other conditions’.(2)
- ‘Fiorina was asked provide proof of her bogus claims made during the debate about Planned Parenthood, but her campaign could provide nothing related to her statements’.
DICKERSON: “Let me ask you about those Planned Parenthood videos. Have you watched them”?
CLINTON: “I have seen excerpts from them. And I have certainly read about them”.
“And what I am troubled by are the misleading, inaccurate allegations about them that we heard from Republicans at their debate. This is really an attack on Planned Parenthood, which provides a lot of health services, from cancer screenings , to contraceptive services, to so many other of the needs women have”.
“And to shut down the government, which some Republicans are advocating, over funding for Planned Parenthood, which takes care of millions of women’s health needs, is just the height of irresponsibility”.
DICKERSON: “That’s the policy debate this has turned into. But what was your reaction just when you watched them”?
CLINTON: “Well, look, as Planned Parenthood has said, these were misleadingly edited. They were intentionally taken out of context”.
“The fact is that, if we want to have a debate in this country about whether we should continue using — or doing fetal research, then it’s not only Planned Parenthood that should be involved in that debate. All of the experts, all of the scientists, all of the research institutions, everybody who is looking for cures to Parkinson’s, for example, should be asked, should we continue this”?
“But so far as I am aware, what they did, despite the way it was portrayed, is within the laws that were set up for this”.
