Warren: GOP Will Be ‘in Trouble’ for Planned Parenthood Attacks
Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed the Republicans on Thursday for their obsession with defunding Planned Parenthood, a move that she believes will cost them dearly in an upcoming election.
“They’re just wrong on this and they’re going to be in real trouble on this,” she added.
Warren is banking on the fact that the average American doesn’t view Planned Parenthood as an election worthy topic.
“All I can say is that we’ve been in that world before … I’m talking about a world where women died,” she said. “I’m talking about a world where women committed suicide rather than go forward with a pregnancy they could not handle and what the Republicans are saying is that they want to go back. And what I want to make clear is that we are not going back — not now, not ever.”
The Hill reports:
Some conservatives had threatened to shut down the government over funding of Planned Parenthood. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that there will not be a government shutdown over Planned Parenthood funding.
“What is the first thing they have to stand up to do? Defund Planned Parenthood. That is so out of touch with reality and so out of touch with what it means to govern this country, that they think they’ve got to try to argue something so that they can move women back,” Warren said.
