Ted Cruz calls Planned Parenthood a national criminal enterprise committing multiple felonies said he would pardon pro-life journalists
On Wednesday’s Fox News Town Hall, 2016 presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz responded to the recent indictment of two pro-lifers who exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation. The Harris County DA’s Office, whose staff member once served on a Planned Parenthood board, brought the charges against Center for Medical Progress investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.
Cruz told Megyn Kelly that he would pardon the pro-life journalists if he is elected as president.
Cruz called Planned Parenthood’s operation “vast criminal conduct” and a “national criminal enterprise committing multiple felonies” and praised the pro-lifers from the Center for Medical Progress as performing an “incredible public service.”
Cruz promised that if elected president, “On the very first day in office I intend to instruct the US Justice Department to open an investigation into Planned Parenthood and to prosecute any and all criminal conduct by that organization.”
Cruz disagreed with Donald Trump’s assertion that the abortion giant does a lot of good.
“I don’t think a criminal enterprise taking the lives of unborn children is wonderful in any way shape or form and I don’t think they should get federal tax payer dollars,” he said.
