Planned Parenthood officials on Sunday seemingly blamed the “hateful speech” of conservative lawmakers and GOP presidential contenders for contributing to Friday’s deadly shooting at a Colorado clinic, but Republicans said the left is trying to use the tragedy for political gain. Friday’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs left three people dead, including a police officer. The presumed gunman, 57-year-old Robert Dear, reportedly made comments about “baby parts” after he was arrested, an apparent reference to the recent controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood and the alleged sale of fetal organs. Planned Parenthood officials charge that some conservative figures have created a climate in which extremists such as Mr. Dear feel that it’s acceptable to target pro-choice organizations. “We’ve experienced so much hateful language, hateful speech,” Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, said on ABC’s “This Week.” “I think politicians have been in that conversation, and, I mean, you know that the airwaves are full of anti-abortion language, of anti-Planned Parenthood accusations, much of which is false in nature. “And we at Planned Parenthood are first and foremost a health care provider. We provide life-saving services to all kinds of folks, men and women, across our communities. And the tirades against Planned Parenthood in the last few months have really been over the top.” Republicans accused liberals of trying to use the tragedy to demonize anyone who opposes abortion, public funding for Planned Parenthood or the sale of baby parts. “Anyone who tries to link this terrible tragedy to anyone who opposes abortion or anyone who opposes the sale of body parts is this is typical left-wing tactics,” 2016 GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Agreed, Carly!! And it’s beyond out of control the self-serving rhetoric coming out of liberal Dems.. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) even suggested that this horrible tragedy was, in part, to be blamed on not only Republican politicians, but talk radio and even bloggers like yours truly here at The Daily Buzz.. How crazy is that?!?! But, it’s the typical crap we have come to expect from these self-righteous, liberal Dems.
