In a new interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader, Hillary Clinton calls videos about Planned Parenthood's involvement in the harvesting and selling of human organs "disturbing." Clinton doesn't say precisely what she finds disturbing about the videos, only that it "raises questions about the whole process." The Union Leader reports:
Calling them “disturbing,” Hillary Clinton said undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue raise questions about the process nationwide.
“I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said during a sit-down interview Tuesday with the New Hampshire Union Leader.
“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.”
"I have said for more than 22 years that abortion should be legal, safe and rare," Clinton added. Many liberals strongly dislike the statement that abortion should be "rare" because it implies there's something wrong about abortion. The phrase "safe, legal, and rare" was made popular by Clinton's husband in 1992. The Democratic party dropped the word "rare" from the party platform in recent years.
Clinton, a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood, has declined to say if she supports and legal limits on late-term abortion.
