Clinton Backs Planned Parenthood Despite Scandal

- August 6, 2015

Clinton Has Made “Vague Comments” In Her Support Of Planned Parenthood. “After weeks of vague comments, Hillary Clinton is making her position on Planned Parenthood very clear: She is in full support of the organization.” (Eliza Collins, “Hillary Clinton Comes Out In Support Of Planned Parenthood,” Politico, 8/3/15)

  • Videos Recently Surfaced That Showed “Doctors And Planned Parenthood Executives Discussing And Performing Fetal Tissue Donation.” “The videos graphically show doctors and Planned Parenthood executives discussing and performing fetal tissue donation. The Center for Medical Progress, the organization behind the videos, says the footage proves the organization illegally sells body parts; Planned Parenthood insists everything it does is legal.” (Eliza Collins, “Hillary Clinton Comes Out In Support Of Planned Parenthood,” Politico, 8/3/15)

This Week, Clinton Released A Video Defending Planned Parenthood, Saying She Is “Proud To Stand With” The Organization. “‘I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions,’ Clinton said in a video released Monday.” (Eliza Collins, “Hillary Clinton Comes Out In Support Of Planned Parenthood,” Politico, 8/3/15)

Last Week, Clinton Called The Videos “Disturbing.”  “Last week, Clinton called the videos ‘disturbing’ but declined to elaborate, saying that Planned Parenthood does ‘a lot of really good work for women.’” (Eliza Collins, “Hillary Clinton Comes Out In Support Of Planned Parenthood,” Politico, 8/3/15)

  • Clinton: “I Have Seen Pictures From Them And Obviously Find Them Disturbing.” “‘I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing,’” Clinton told the New Hampshire Union Leader in an interview.” (Jake Miller, “Hillary Clinton: Planned Parenthood Videos ‘Disturbing,’” CBS News, 7/29/15)

Shortly After The Release Of The Videos, Clinton “Came Out In Defense Of Planned Parenthood For The First Time” By Noting That Planned Parenthood Had “Apologized” For Selling Fetal Tissue.  “Hillary Clinton on Thursday came out in defense of Planned Parenthood for the first time since the organization got swept up in a scandal involving videos that allege it sells fetal tissue. ‘Planned Parenthood has apologized for the insensitivity of the employee who was taped, and they will continue to answer questions for Congress and others,’ Clinton said during a campaign stop in South Carolina.” (Annie Karni, “Clinton Comes Out In Defense Of Planned Parenthood,” Politico, 7/23/15)
