Planned Parenthood acts as a "political slush fund" for Democrats, GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said Sunday, taking federal funding while making donations to Democratic candidates.
"This is a political slush fund on top of being butchery that Americans, again whether they're pro-life or pro-choice, cannot support," Fiorina said Sunday on "Meet the Press."
Fiorina was questioned about her claim that one of the undercover videos shot by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress shows footage of a fetus being kept alive to harvest body parts. CMP has said that part of the video is stock footage of a stillbirth used to illustrate a story being told by a former abortion clinic worker.
But Fiorina said the focus should be on the fact that Planned Parenthood "butchers" human fetuses to sell for research
"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," she said. "This goes to the character of our nation, and it must be stopped."
Fiorina told moderator Chuck Todd he missed an opportunity earlier on the same program when he interviewed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
"So sad that you missed the opportunity to ask Mrs. Clinton why she said late term abortions were only performed for medical purposes. That is patently false," Fiorina said. "This is happening in America today and taxpayers are paying for it. That is a fact. It is a reality. And no one can run away from it."
