As a reminder for anyone that needs it, Planned Parenthood (PP) is under attack by the GOP, because 3 percent of its business deals with abortion. Recently Carly Fiorina was caught in a heinous lie about PP, during a GOP debate. Too bad she didn’t see this video by Rebecca Watson before she opened her lie hole.
Nevermind that 97 percent of what PP does involves serving the health care needs of low-income women! They sometimes end pregnancies there, so the GOP needs to de-fund them to make it right <insert sarcasm>. The House just passed a bill symbolically de-funding PP in the name of two women who survived late-term abortions close to 30 years ago. They passed this bill even though 90 percent of abortions now happen in the first trimester. Never mind that people survive executions also and that doesn’t stop the GOP from being pro-death penalty.
Carly Fiorina, Former HP CEO, who is trying to win the Republican nomination, decided to make up FICTION about what they do. She lied, adding things that never happened to already heavily edited and purposefully misleading videos, during the last GOP Debate.
I could totally rant on this: many already have, but I found this video instead. Carly lied, period, and sensationalized something that wasn’t even in the videos.
What did she say? Well, this spectacular word salad:
As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. 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.
Let me be clear: THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN THE VIDEOS.
This does not happen, it isn’t a thing, it is just propaganda. Either Carly Fiorina never watched the videos she is daring others to watch, or she just doesn’t believe the GOP voters are smart enough to see through the blatant falsehood.
Maybe this video would be simple enough for her to wrap her head around:
