GOP debate: Chris Christie to get ‘rid of Planned Parenthood funding’ due to ‘thousands of children murdered in the womb’



During the GOP debate on Fox News, Chris Christie was asked about what is the most important program any future Republican president could cut would be and Christie quickly pointed to Planned Parenthood.

While Republicans often campaign on reducing the size and scope of government, the last Republican president added a new federal entitlement program to the ballooning national budget. “Can you name even one thing that the federal government does now that it should not do at all?” Bret Baier asked New Jersey Governor Christie at last night’s Republican presidential debate in Des Moines.

“Yes. You want one?” Christie joked.

“How about one that I’ve done in New Jersey for the last six years. That’s get rid of Planned Parenthood funding from the United States of America,” he said.

When Baier asked if Christie could think of a “bigger” program, Christie replied, “When you see thousands upon thousands upon thousands of children being murdered in the womb, I can’t think of anything better than that.”

Check out the clip below.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, performed 323,999 abortions and received $553.7 million in taxpayer funding in 2014. In all, it is responsible for approximately one in every three abortions nationwide.

The abortion provider has been under attack after Center for Medical Progress released several undercover videos exposing the sale of fetal tissue, violations of consent and handling of the practices.
