Wolf Blitzer Demands of Paul: 'Why Do You Want to Defund Planned Parenthood?' (NewsBusters)
Wolf Blitzer grilled Rand Paul on Thursday, demanding to know why the Republican presidential candidate would dare advocate the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Quoting liberal talking points, he complained, "Why do you want to defund Planned Parenthood? Because, as you know, according to Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, the president of the organization, they serve two and a half million people, a lot of poor people, a lot of poor women out there."
Blitzer chided, "So, tell us why you would defund, if you had your way, the entire organization." Paul shot back: "I know pro- choice people who are upset about [the selling of baby organs]. Even Hillary Clinton, who is not sure when life begins, she's even disturbed by this. You have to realize, this is really disturbing a lot of people from all spectrums of life."
