2016 candidates blast Planned Parenthood over video

Doctor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate reacts to Planned Parenthood video on 'The Kelly File'

 

Republican presidential candidates blasted Planned Parenthood on Wednesday after an undercover video was released showing an official discussing the shipment of fetus body parts. 

Here's what they say: 

Ben Carson 

Rick Perry 

"The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization's penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life. It is because of stories like this that I signed legislation defunding Planned Parenthood in the state of Texas - to protect human life and the health and safety of Texans."

Jeb Bush 

Mike Huckabee 

Rick Santorum 

Carly Fiorina 

"I am proudly pro-life. I believe that every human life has potential and that every human life is precious. This latest news is tragic and outrageous. This isn't about "choice." It's about profiting on the death of the unborn while telling women it's about empowerment."

Rand Paul 

Bobby Jindal 

Scott Walker 

In a statement to Buzzfeed News: "This is absolutely horrifying and disgusting. Planned Parenthood and the Democrats who vote to fund this organization owe the American people an explanation for these heinous, and possibly illegal, actions." 

Ted Cruz
