The biggest campaign news on reproductive rights this week continued to be Carly Fiorina, who doubled down on the biggest lie she has told so far.
RH Reality Check brings you our first weekly roundup of the good, the bad, and the bizarre statements on reproductive health and justice from the people who want to be your president.
Fact-checkers at almost every major media outlet were quick to debunk Fiorina’s misleading comments about Planned Parenthood last week at the second GOP presidential debate.
Planned Parenthood confessed to felonies? Hillary Clinton believes in systematic murder? Welcome to the 2016 GOP presidential contest.
It’s no surprise that Planned Parenthood came up at the GOP debate, but the substance of that debate was less about Planned Parenthood and more about whether abortion should be legal in the United States at all.
The only people profiting off the “sale” of fetal body parts are the members of the anti-choice movement, right-wing politicians, and the snake-oil salesmen and women otherwise known as GOP candidates for president.
In registration packets for the Western Conservative Summit, which attracted GOP presidential contenders to Denver over the weekend, conference goers received a booklet titled, “Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality.”
Looking up to a Carly Fiorina-type doesn’t help you if you have to quit your job because you can’t afford child care.
Even in front of this red-meat-friendly audience, references to abortion rights by presidential hopefuls were mostly passing and routine.
Republicans are not waging a war on women “just because” they want to restrict access to abortion and birth control, and focusing on such issues is an “insult” to women, said Carly Fiorina, co-chair of the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference, in her remarks to the conference on Saturday.
