In a surprising move, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton didn’t really toe the party line. The Free Beacon reported:
“I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said during a sit-down interview Tuesday with the paper.
“Planned Parenthood is answering questions and will continue to answer questions. I think there are two points to make,” Clinton said. “One, Planned Parenthood for more than a century has done a lot of really good work for women: cancer screenings, family planning, all kinds of health services. And this raises not questions about Planned Parenthood so much as it raises questions about the whole process, that is, not just involving Planned Parenthood, but many institutions in our country.”
Clinton, a recipient of the 2009 Margaret Sanger Award, voiced tepid support for the three congressional investigations into the matter, but said they should go even further—targeting all abortion providers, rather than only the nation’s largest.
“If there’s going to be any kind of congressional inquiry, it should look at everything and not just one (organization),” she said.
