Fiorina continues to make the most outrageous claims about seeing an abortion video that have been debunked repeatedly by medical professionals who argue, point by point, that it shows a miscarriage, not an abortion. Furthermore, there is evidence that the film was not taken at a Planned Parenthood clinic but in a hospital and that we don’t know that it was even in the US or that the woman’s consent was obtained.
Fiorina just does not seem to care at all about the truth. Even by the low standards of the Republican presidential candidates, she is appalling.
The Daily Show looks at Fiorina’s claims and the way that other Republicans have seized upon her fraudulent claims to further their agenda to make it harder and harder for women to get safe and legal abortions.
