Planned Parenthood ignored in first Democratic debate

The headline over at Newsbusters challenged the CNN moderation of the first Democratic debate on the omission of the Planned Parenthood controversy. Check out the clip below and a link to their full coverage.

“CNN spent more than 10 minutes pressing GOP candidates about Planned Parenthood during the previous debate – but moderators couldn’t bear to mention the abortion giant once during Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate,” the article begins.

Planned Parenthood has been in the recent headlines, but left off the list of topics which included gun control, Black Lives Matter and health care in general. Hillary Clinton made one brief reference and then the topic was avoided.

Bash asked Hillary Clinton about supporting “mandated paid family leave.”

“There are so many people who say, ‘Really, another government program?’ Bash prompted Clinton. “Is that what you’re proposing and at the expense of taxpayer money?”

In her response, Clinton brought up the forbidden debate topic: Planned Parenthood. She replied:

“When people say that, it’s always the Republicans or their sympathizers who say, ‘You can’t have paid leave, you can’t provide health care.’ They don’t mind having big government to interfere with a woman’s right to choose and to try to take down Planned Parenthood. They’re fine with big government when it comes to that. I’m sick of it. You know, we can do these things. We should not be paralyzed by the Republicans and their constant refrain ‘Big government this, big government that’ except for what they want to impose on the American people.”

Critics are likely to claim that the reference appeared to be pandering for applause.
