Presidential candidates hammer Planned Parenthood on their websites, call for defunding

The majority of the candidates running for president in 2016 have released statements opposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of baby parts. (Even pro-abortion Republican, George Pataki has unequivocally called for the abortion giant’s defunding.)

On his home page – even in place of an ad for his own candidacy – Senator Marco Rubio is working to collect signatures in support of defunding Planned Parenthood.

If you search “Huckabee for President,” you will see Mike Huckabee’s site with the headline: “Defund Planned Parenthood – Mike Huckabee for President.” The home page is almost entirely dedicated to defunding Planned Parenthood.

Senator Rand Paul has made news, committing to using appropriate tactics in the Senate to push for a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood. His home page describes his commitment:

Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum, and Governor Scott Walker have all made statements opposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of baby parts, yet the four did not have an obvious portion of their campaign websites dedicated to calling for defunding or an investigation. Governor Walker is calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood at his campaign stops, though, and on TV interviews.

There is still a deafening silence from Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but the majority of those who want to represent the American people have realized that Americans don’t endorse the harvesting and selling of baby livers, hearts, or lungs.

Recent media reports indicate that all of the Democrat candidates are refusing requests for comment as well as refusing to call for a Congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood’s, despite the abortion giant’s almost certain violation of federal laws.
