Trump calls to defund “abortion factory” Planned Parenthood

Posted in 2016 Presidential Race, Defund Planned Parenthood, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2015 by saynsumthn

GOP lead presidential contender Donald Trump has referred to Planned Parenthood as an “abortion factory” and is now calling for them to be defunded.

This comes as Congress begins to debate the issue.

    “The biggest problem I have with Planned Parenthood is the abortion situation. I mean it’s like an abortion factory frankly and you can’t have it! And You just shouldn’t be funding it. It should not be funded by the government,” Trump said previously on CNN’s “New Day.”

Trump OReilly Planned Parenthood

Tiesday, on Fox’s Bill O’Reilly show, Trump emphasized his called for Planned Parenthood to be defunded:

    “I’m not supporting Planned Parenthood…I’m against Planned Parenthood…totally against. I’m against it…A lot of people say its an abortion clinic I’m opposed to that. I wouldn’t do any funding as long as they’re doing abortions and they are performing abortions so I would be totally opposed to funding,” he said.

In early August, the Senate failed in their effort to stop the use of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. Instead, Republican leadership blocked a recorded vote on amendments to defund Planned Parenthood. The call for defunding reached a crescendo following the release of several videos by The Center for Medical Progress, exposing Planned Parenthood’s horrific operation of baby parts harvesting.

Donald Trump: I Don’t support Planned Parenthood it’s like an abortion factory! Says defund as long as they perform abortions

Posted in 2016 Presidential Race, Donald Trump with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2015 by saynsumthn

After previously attempting to detail the confusing abortion position of Donald Trump I have put together some more recent statements he has made about Planned Parenthood.

Bill O’Reilly asked 2016 presidential GOP hopeful Donald Trump about support of Planned Parenthood, after he said that All Lives Matter in response to the Black Lives Matter campaign.

“The fact is All Lives Matter that includes Black and it includes White and includes everyone else,” Trump said.

O’Reilly then asked “If All Lives Matter then – why do you support Planned Parenthood?”

Trump OReilly Planned Parenthood

Donald Trump replied:

    “I’m not supporting Planned Parenthood…I’m against Planned Parenthood…totally against. I’m against it…..A lot of people say its an abortion clinic I’m opposed to that. I wouldn’t do any funding as long as they’re doing abortions and they are performing abortions so I would be totally opposed to funding.”

The Donald told O’Reilly: “You have bad researchers”

It set off a storm of tweets because several people thought Trump had shown support of Planned Parenthood:

Trump on Planned Parenthood

Donald Trump said previously on CNN’s “New Day” that he would “look at the good aspects” of Planned Parenthood before defunding.

Trump did stick to his position that the “abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not — absolutely should not — be funded.”

    “The biggest problem I have with Planned Parenthood is the abortion situation. I mean it’s like an abortion factory frankly and you can’t have it! And You just shouldn’t be funding it. It should not be funded by the government. Because really if you look at it and look at the work they do it really has become so heavily centered at abortion and you can’t have that.”

Trump abortion prolife exceptions

Given the 3% abortion lie, Trump responded:

    “What I’d do if the time came I would look at the individual things that they do and maybe some of the things are good and maybe – I know a lot of the things are bad but certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government. Absolutely.”

    I would look at the good aspects of it and I would also look because I’m sure they do some things properly and good, good for women, and I would look at that,” Trump said.

    “The abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not be funded.”

Asked when he believes the unborn becomes a person, Trump replied:

    “Well I certainly think as the process goes along more and more and a lot of people are talking about the 20 weeks, certainly there but absolutely as the process goes along but I am a person that feels very very strongly about – you know I’m pro-life but I also feel you go with the exceptions.”

Trump on Dana Loesch (jump to 3:00)

    “Absolutely they [Planned Parenthood] should be defunded…the answer is in my opinion they should absolutely be defunded…In the case of PP anybody who watched these videos…its very sad to watch it…I thought it was a disgrace.”

Trump on Hannity: (jump to 16:50)

    “They do good things…So look, let’s say there’s Two Planned Parenthood’s in a way, you have it as an abortion clinic now that actually is a very small part if what they do but its a brutal part and I’m totally against it and I wouldn’t do that. They also however service women…We have to help women, a lot of women are helped, so we have to look at the positives also about Planned Parenthood.

    “Maybe unless they stop with the abortions we don’t do the funding for the stuff that we want. There are many ways you can do that Sean because I’m totally against the abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood…”

    There are many ways to do that, because I’m totally against the abortion aspect, but I’ve had many women, I’ve had many Republican conservative women come up and say Planned Parenthood serves a good function other than the one aspect,” he said. “We have to help women.”

Trump on Hugh Hewitt Show on shutting down government to defund PP

    “I can tell you this I would…if the republicans stuck together you could have done this with ObamaCare also…I think you have to in this case also – yes!”

Donald Trump on Meet The Press – 8/16/15

    “I’ve always hated the concept of abortion- always…I’m pro-life…to me I have exceptions: rape, incest, if the mother is going to die…”

Asked if he was ever a Planned Parenthood donor, Trump replied, “I don’t know. It’s possible. Like, I’ve given to so many organizations over the years. Hundreds of millions of dollars. I don’t know – I don’t think so but it’s possible…”

    “Well look, Planned Parenthood has to stop with the abortions. A lot of people consider them an abortion clinic…”

He was asked if he is ambivalent about shutting down Planned Parenthood:

Women’s health issues are important to me,” Trump said.

Asked to specify if he thinks there should be a government shut down over Planned Parenthood Trump said:


    ” I wouldn’t fund it if they have the abortion going on and it’s been a big factor so I’d certainly look into it.”

    “I would not fund if they’re doing abortions,” Trump emphasized, adding that he’d have to think about whether he would shut the government down over it, “It bothers me greatly that they’re doing the abortions and at the same time women’s health issues are very important to me. And you have a lot of other people who do that without the abortion clinic – because they really are to a large extent an abortion clinic.”

Donald Trump says he is “pro-life” but what does he mean?

Posted in Donald Trump with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2015 by saynsumthn

Bloomberg Business asked Donald Trump if he was pro-life and he said “yes.”

Donald Trump on abortion

But asked to expound and he said, “It’s an issue. I mean it’s an issue and it’s a strong issue.

Asked if abortion early in the pregnancy was murder to the Don, he replied,”What I am saying is this. With caveats. Uh Life of the mother, incest, rape – that’s where I stand. So, I’m pro-life but with the caveats. You have to have it with the caveats…”

Asked if a pregnancy happens outside those caveats, Trump stated, “It depends why,” he said.

I’m, pro-life…very simple pro-life,” he said.

His not-so-passionate “pro-life” answer seems to be a change from what he wrote in 2000.

The America We Deserve Trump abortion

In his book, The America We Deserve, Trump devoted three sentences to abortion, claiming to be “pro-choice” but against partial birth abortion.

In 2011, before a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. Trump was asked about his pro-choice position and responded, “Who said I’m pro-choice?’

Well, Mr. Trump, in 1999 you told Meet the Press this:

    “Well, I’m very pro-choice. I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debate the subject. But, you still, I just believe in choice.”

Donald Trump prochoice abortion 1999

He went on to say, “I am strongly for choice but I hate the concept of abortion.”

Then in 2011, Trump told Laura Ingram on her radio show, “I’m pro-life.

Trump admitted in a 2011 interview on NBC that he thought there was a “right to privacy” in the Constitution.

This was the basis for the Roe v. Wade court case that led to legalized abortion on demand, which apparently Donald did not know because he asked Savannah Guthrie:

    “Well, that’s a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life. I mean, it’s a very unique way of asking about pro-life. What does that have to do with privacy? How are you equating pro-life with privacy?”

At that time, Savannah Guthrie reminded him of the Roe V Wade decision.

Trump responded, “Look, I’m pro-life. I’ve said it. I’m very strong there. And, I’m strong on pro-life.”

CNN July 2015:

It is apparent that Trump wanted to be identified as against abortion in some cases.

If he is really pro-life though- he will not approve of the slaughter of children for the crimes of their fathers.

I guess, we will have to see what….evolves next.

Used To Be Pro-Choice Donald Trump Clueless Abo…, posted with vodpod

4/20/2011 CNN Reporting:

Donald Trump appeared to stumble into a contradiction in an interview Tuesday – a misstep that could haunt the potential GOP presidential candidate amongst social conservatives.

In an interview with MSNBC, Trump was asked if he believed there was a right to privacy in the Constitution – a right that, while not explicitly stated in the Constitution, the Supreme Court has said can be inferred from the text.

He responded, “I guess there is, I guess there is.”

Then his tone of voice changed and he followed up with, “And why, just out of curiosity, why do you ask that question?”

When NBC’s Savannah Guthrie wondered how that line of legal theory “squares” with his pro-life stance, Trump said, “Well, that’s a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life. I mean, it’s a very unique way of asking about pro-life. What does that have to do with privacy? How are you equating pro-life with privacy?”

To answer Trump’s question, the United States Supreme Court equated the right to privacy as grounds to legalize abortion in its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
