Carly Fiorina Blames Jeb Bush for Adding Fuel to the Planned Parenthood Fire

On Thursday, presidential candidate Carly Fiorina went after fellow candidate Jeb Bush, saying that he made a misstatement, which Democrats can use as a talking point against Republicans. Fiorina stated “I think it’s going to become an ad. I think it’s going to become an ad in a Democratic campaign. Hillary Clinton jumped all over it for a reason, because she saw an opportunity. And it is foolish to say that women’s health isn’t a priority. Of course it’s a priority. We can talk later about how and where that money gets spent, but it’s Democrats who want to talk about women’s health when they talk about Planned Parenthood.”

Speaking on Tuesday to the Southern Baptist Convention in Nashville, Tenn., Bush said “I’m not sure we need half a billion dollars for women’s health issues." Bush immediately issued a statement saying that he “misspoke” and was referring to the $500 million Planned Parenthood gets annually from the federal government. In a Thursday interview on CNN, Fiorina said, “Unfortunately, he played into Democrats talking points. The Democrats' point is that the Planned Parenthood videos of late-term abortion is about women’s health. It’s about nothing of the kind. The Planned Parenthood video is about picking over babies for body parts.”
