• Warren: This Is My Conspiracy Theory of GOP, Fox News & Planned Parenthood Videos

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) claimed that the recently released Planned Parenthood videos, which suggest the organization sells late-term aborted fetal organs, were strategically released so GOP candidates can talk about them at their Fox News debate.

    Warren took the Senate floor to issue a defense of Planned Parenthood when the Senate convened Monday to vote on a bill seeking to defund the abortion giant.

    “This year alone Republican state legislators have passed more than 50 new restrictions on women’s access to legal health care,” Warren said. “So… let’s be really clear about something. The Republicans scheme to defund Planned Parenthood is not some sort of surprise response to a highly edited video.”

    She argued that the reason Republicans are outraged by the video because of their ideological hatred of women

    “No. The Republican vote to defund Planned Parenthood is just one more piece of a deliberate, methodical, orchestrated, right-wing attack on women’s rights, and I’m sick and tired of it. Women everywhere are sick and tired of it,” she continued. “The American people are sick and tired of it.”

    The former Harvard Law professor said the  GOP has raised the issue of abortion to a level of debate just in time for the presidential debate season followed by fundraising.

    “Scheduling this vote during the week of a big Fox News presidential primary debate, days before candidates take trips to Iowa or New Hampshire isn’t just some clever gimmick,” she added. “This is an all-out effort to build support to take away a woman’s right to control her own body and access to medical care she may need.”
