Carly Fiorina attacks abortion supporters: ‘pro-life and pro-women go hand in hand’

Carly Fiorina told the March for Life protesters that tax payer funding for Planned Parenthood needs to end and pro-life and pro-women are the same thing.

The candidate elected in this November’s presidential election “will have a lot to say about whether a baby a month – a month – from being born is only as good as the parts that can be sold from it,” Fiorina told the 43rd annual March for Life in her keynote speech.

“In less than a year there will be a new president in the White House,” she said, who “will pick up to four Supreme Court justices who will decide issues of life and religious liberty.”

“She will decide whether we force taxpayers to fund the political arm of the abortion industry,” Fiorina said, emphasizing the “she”, as the crowd showed its approval of her pronoun choice. This year’s march’s theme is, “Pro-life and pro-women go hand in hand.”

The next president, Fiorina continued, will decide “whether we as a nation believe — as the Democrat platform says — that a life isn’t a life until it leaves the hospital; whether a baby only a month from being born is only as good as the organs you can sell from it.”

Fiorina cited the undercover video which captured a former Planned Parenthood tech describing an aborted baby’s heart being restarted before its brains were harvested for “donation.”

“Let me say this to the Planned Parenthood supporters: You can scream and throw condoms at me all day long,” she said today. “You won’t silence me. You don’t scare me.”

Fiorina has faced tougher foes.

“I have battled breast cancer. I have buried a child. I have read the Bible. I know the value of life,” she said.

Despite the March for Life’s decidedly feminist-friendly theme and speaker roster this year, Fiorina bashed left-wing feminism as a conservative-bashing political front, not a force for women’s liberation.

Instead of adding women’s voices to the national discourse, “ideological feminism shuts down conversation   on college campuses and in the media” by dismissing everyone who does not embrace leftist social values.

“This was never about women’s health,” she said. “It was about the litanies of the Left. It was about funding their political agenda.”

 

“I have visited pregnancy centers around the country,” Fiorina said. “They are doing God’s work ,and they do not receive a dime of federal funding.”

If elected president, “ I will defund Planned Parenthood. I will support the pregnancy centers around the country that are actually serving the families in their communities,” she promised.
