Whoopi Defends Planned Parenthood against Fiorina: ‘No One’s Harvesting Baby Parts’

According to Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, Planned Parenthood does not harvest baby parts. While interviewing Carly Fiorina today on The View, the co-hosts challenged the Republican presidential candidate for being “against programs that let women make choices for their lives,” specifically citing her criticisms of Planned Parenthood.

“Whether you’re pro-choice or pro-life, the majority of Americans are horrified by the reality that we’re harvesting baby parts through late-term abortions,” Fiorina said. 

“Carly, I need to stop you,” Goldberg interrupted. “Because that is not — you know that’s not true.”

“Carly, no one is harvesting baby parts,” Goldberg continued. 

“It’s interesting that Planned Parenthood just announced that they were no longer going to take compensation for that,” Fiorina shot back. 

“You can’t say things like that that aren’t true,” Behar interjected. “That offends my sensibility to hear you say something like that when you know it’s not true.”

Goldberg then changed the subject, arguing an attack on Planned Parenthood is an attack on poor women: “I think what we need to hear what it is you would like to see women dealing with. Because we know that the only women who are really affected by Planned Parenthood are women who are low income.”
