Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina again stood by her description of a Planned Parenthood video Sunday that she gave at the CNN debate earlier this month.
At the CNN debate Sept. 16, Fiorina told Democrats to look at the videos and “watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”
Her campaign and the organization that released the “sting” videos can’t point to the video that shows what Fiorina described.
Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Fiorina Sept. 20 whether she accepted that the video she describes does not exist. She refused. On, Sunday, NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd whether she has seen the footage.
“Yes,” she said. “And I would challenge Planned Parenthood… They’re trying to distract the American people from the hideous reality that Planned Parenthood is aborting fetuses alive to harvest their brains and other body parts. That is a fact.”
“Planned Parenthood will not and cannot deny this because it is happening. It is happening in this nation,” Fiorina continued. “And taxpayers are paying for it. Planned Parenthood desperately wants everyone to think this isn’t going on. Because when Americans realize it is going on, whether they are pro-life or pro-choice, they are horrified. This goes to the character of our nation and it must be stopped.”
