Fiorina: I Will Not Be Bullied Into Telling Truth.

The shootings at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo., over the holiday have put the debate over the women’s health services and abortion provider back in the news. In the days after a shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on Friday left three people dead and nine injured, details are starting to emerge about the victims.Court records in South Carolina show a Peeping Tom charge against the suspect in Colorado’s Planned Parenthood shooting was dismissed in 2002 on the same day the woman who made the accusation filed a restraining order against him.NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Calling criticism of her misrepresentations about Planned Parenthood “typical left-wing tactics,” the Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said, on Sunday, “I will not be bullied into telling the truth.” Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. denied that spreading misinformation about Planned Parenthood was “in any way incendiary,” but added, “What is truly incendiary is demanding that someone who is seeking the highest office in the land stop lying.” Fiorina noted that many of her rivals for the Republican nomination—including Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz—had successfully used lying as a key element of their campaign strategies. “All I am trying to do is level the playing field,” she said.

Nancy Kerrigan, a two-time Olympic medalist, grew up with Swasey in Massachusetts and said she was “devastated” by his death. “You can’t explain it. Reports over the weekend suggested that Robert Lewis Dear told investigators about “baby parts” after the shooting, a potential reference to undercover videos circulated by an anti-abortion group showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the donation of tissue from aborted fetuses. Additionally, she argued that she had not singled out Planned Parenthood as the subject of falsehoods during her campaign. “Look at the things I have said about my tenure at Hewlett-Packard,” she said. “I have steadfastly avoided facts from day one.” Striking a defiant note, she said that she refused to allow a “tiny cabal of left-wing truth-fetishists” break her resolve. “Anyone who thinks I’m going to start suddenly telling the truth doesn’t know what Carly Fiorina is made of,” she said. Cruz who described the reproductive health clinic a “criminal enterprise,” guilty of “multiple felonies” during a GOP debate this fall, became the first Republican candidate to say anything in public about the attack when he tweeted his condolences on Saturday: “We know that police officers and civilians have been targeted and lost their lives and our prayers are right now are with the families,” Cruz said. For their part, Richards said, Planned Parenthood has been careful not to explicitly link political rhetoric and last Friday’s shooting, though “it’s important to recognize that words matter” and they have a “real impact.” “I think we’ve been extremely careful.

Colleton County Court administrator Pamala White said Monday a copy of the restraining order was no longer available because the county destroys them after 10 years. We are working hand in hand with law enforcement, Steve, as we do across the country to ensure the safety of our patients and the safety of our employees. Kerrigan, 46, learned of his death from Swasey’s parents — who now live in Colorado. “We were together an awful lot as children,” she told the Herald. “I would ride my bike to his house and we’d hang out at the pool.

We were together all the time, whether skating or not.” “I am not surprised with the way he was living his life, as police officer helping others,” she said. “It makes total sense. The fallout has threatened to shut down the government, take away hundreds of millions in federal funding from Planned Parenthood and has already become a major campaign issue, expanding into a debate on gun control and domestic terrorism. He was always like that.” “We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love that has come from the community and across the nation,” she said. “We understand this is a public tragedy felt by many and we also appreciate your support for us to grieve privately.”

It’s horrifying to see and I can’t believe we’re seeing it, even this week, as really we should be to me, thinking about the families of the people who were killed and injured and how we can stop this kind of violence in America.” “It’s alarming to see this kind of rhetoric and these kinds of smear campaigns against abortion providers and patients continue,” she said, adding that the organization continues to have “very strong security measures in place” at their facilities nationwide. Marc Pino told the Associated Press. “You don’t realize how much you love someone until you can’t tell them anymore,” co-pastor Scott Dontanville, who preached yesterday, said, reported NBC News. In an interview with ABC News, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards calls the group that recorded the videos “militant.” “The folks behind this are part of the most militant wing of the antiabortion movement that has been behind the bombing of clinics, the murder of doctors in their homes and in their churches.

Ted Cruz, also a candidate for the GOP nomination, cited a report that said the shooter “was registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist, if that’s what he is.” The first part of Cruz’s remark was specifically based on reports of a voter registration form in which Dear was listed as female. And they’re not happy about it.” Ben Carson chimed in during his trip to a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, describing the shootings as a “hate crime” during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” without ever explicitly mentioning Planned Parenthood. “Unfortunately, there’s a lot of extremism coming from all areas.

Dear is accused of killing a police officer and two civilians — an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two — who were accompanying separate friends to the clinic. That’s when the name-calling starts.” “What he is did is absolutely abominable, especially to those of us in the pro-life movement, because there’s nothing about any of us that would condone or in any way look the other way at something like this,” Huckabee insisted before taking a pot shot at Secretary of State John Kerry and continuing his usual attacks against Planned Parenthood. “We’re not going to have the kind of language that you heard from John Kerry where he talked about legitimizing or rationalizing terrorist actions,” Huckabee told host Brianna Keilar. “There’s no legitimizing, there’s no rationalizing. I want to say to my Republican colleagues, the year is 2015, not 1955 and not 1895.” One of the first begins Sept. 9 in the House Judiciary Committee. Titled “Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider,” Republican committee leaders invite four witnesses, three of whom are abortion-rights foes and two of whom say they survived their mothers’ abortions. The Washington Post’s Sandhya Somashekhar reports that the hearing focused less on the specific ins and outs of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue donation program and more on the age-old questions of when life begins.

And there’s no excuse for killing other people, whether it’s happening inside the Planned Parenthood headquarters, inside their clinics where many millions of babies die, or whether it’s people attacking Planned Parenthood.” Jeb!, who has complained that $500,000 spent federally for women’s health is too much money, merely said on Saturday that “there is no acceptable explanation for this violence, and I will continue to pray for those who have been impacted,” in a statement. He was shot after stepping outside of the clinic to get cell phone service, according to his brother Leyonte Chandler. “So he ran back inside, trying to help out others,” he continued. “I don’t know where he was at, as far as how many more breaths he had, but he knew. In contrast, on Friday night, Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders both tweeted that they “#StandWithPP,” while Martin O’Malley followed suit on Saturday. Witness Gianna Jessen talks about her mother’s abortion that she said nearly killed her: Richards’s hours-long testimony in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, headed by vocal abortion foe Rep. When he isn’t satisfied with her answer, he essentially compares her to a criminal, saying: “It seems to me that the apology you offered was like what some criminals do.

A few days after Boehner’s last day, House Republicans vote to create a special committee to investigate the practices of abortion and fetal tissue procurement.
