Planned Parenthood's Favorite Republican Candidate. They Support...
Our Republican candidates have all been united in pledging to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood, except for one. There's one Republican candidate who wants to keep the alleged good parts of it...
“What I would do when the time came, I’d look at the individual things they do, and maybe some of the individual things they do are good. I know a lot of the things are bad. But certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government, absolutely. I would look at the good aspects of [Planned Parenthood], and I would also look, because I’m sure they do some things properly and good and that are good for women, and I would look at that, and I would look at other aspects also."
Planned Parenthood was quick to applaud this Republican's statement.
"He seems to have realized that banning all abortions, shutting down the government, and defunding Planned Parenthood are extreme positions that are way too far outside the mainstream for even him to take. We hope that the rest of the GOP field will wake up and reconsider their extreme and unpopular positions on [abortion]."
Big praise from Planned Parenthood? For a national Republican candidate? Who could this be? Who ever could this...
Oh, well that makes sense.
Donald Trump told Hugh Hewitt, about a week or so earlier, that he would cut funding for Planned Parenthood...until he changed his mind and is now Planned Parenthood's favorite Republican candidate.
Okay honestly, isn't the right to life one of those "closed-handed" issues? I disagree with nearly every candidate on some form of politics, but this is bigger than that. This is about principles. If the Republican party abandons core principles completely, in favor of celebrity, they deserve to lose.
I'd like to see Donald answer for this, but he won't. With his supporters, he doesn't have to. He'd probably just say something like: "If you don't support Planned Parenthood, you're a loser. And frankly, the Donald doesn't want the vote of a loser."
