Democratic presidential candidates were silent in the wake footage released Tuesday showing Planned Parenthood’s top doctor allegedly describing how the clinics sell the body parts of aborted babies.
None of the declared Democratic presidential candidates — former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Sen. Jim Webb, and former Gov. Lincoln Chafee — responded to multiple requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation regarding the video.
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz also did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who oversees the abortion practices of all Planned Parenthood clinics and trains their abortion doctors, describes in the video how the clinics take orders for body parts and then perform abortions strategically to fill those orders, sometimes using a procedure that could be considered a partial-birth abortion, which is illegal.
