GOP advised to jump all over Planned Parenthood

A conservative political pundit believes the recent revelations from Planned Parenthood should make a great campaign issue for Republican presidential candidates.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill and in several states are looking at the evidence that Planned Parenthood may have broken the law by selling tissue and body parts of aborted babies. The evidence has been in the form of two undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMR) showing Planned Parenthood executives talking about the sale of the body parts to undercover actors posing as buyers.

Cathie Adams is a former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas who now serves as president of Texas Eagle Forum. She says GOP presidential candidates need to support calls for cutting off taxpayer funding to the abortion provider.

"It is not different from something that I saw just a very few years ago in Dachau," she describes. "Are we as Americans going to stand for this? Or are we going to have a presidential candidate who stands up and says This is unacceptable; we will not fund it, we will not tolerate it?"

A particular segment of the second video from CMR apparently struck a nerve with Adams.

"And that one physician claiming 'I want a Lamborghini' more important more valuable to her than life itself? That woman needs to have her medical license removed – and any presidential candidate ought to be bold to say exactly that," she tells OneNewsNow.

The Texas Eagle Forum leader says Republican candidates, in their appeals to American voters appalled by Planned Parenthood's activities, need to hammer home that Democrat Hillary Clinton – who remains the presumptive nominee for her party – is staunchly pro-abortion.
