Planned Parenthood: Cruz, Fiorina Create Most Loathsome Pair In America

Today, with his campaign in shambles, Ted Cruz is expected to announce that Carly Fiorina would be his pick for vice president, according to WMUR.

This is the same Carly Fiorina who is best known for lying; firing 30,000 people at Hewlett Packard; falling drastically in the race for the GOP nomination because of her lies about Planned Parenthood; and ambushing a preschool field trip to use toddlers as a tiny prop audience in an anti-abortion talk.

Fittingly, Senator Ted Cruz (who is also known for lying) believes her actions qualify her to help run a country. That’s no surprise, either: This is the same Ted Cruz who wants to ban abortion, has pushed shady campaign tactics, and embraced support from the most extreme and violent elements of the anti-abortion movement.

A Cruz–Fiorina ticket should give women in this country nightmares. Both Cruz and Fiorina:

  • Want to ban abortion

  • Would rather shut down the government than allow low-income women to access birth control and lifesaving cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood.

  • Continue to embrace incendiary rhetoric and lies about Planned Parenthood that have led to an increase in violence, threats and political attacks against abortion providers

  • Have wholeheartedly echoed the disproven criminal video campaign attacking Planned Parenthood — despite the fact that officials in 12 states found that the claims against Planned Parenthood made in the videos had absolutely no merit and a Grand Jury in Texas not only cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing but also indicted the leader of the video attack campaign

Their agenda is so unpopular that both of them have resorted to blatant, inflammatory lies in order to legitimize their extreme beliefs. These lies truly threaten women’s access to health care in this country.
