Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina said she is not surprised by comments blaming the Planned Parenthood attack on abortion opponents.
“This is so typical of the left, to immediately begin demonizing the messenger because they don’t agree with the message,” Fiorina said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“What I would say to anyone who would try to link this terrible tragedy to anyone who opposes abortion or the sale of body parts, is this is typical, left-wing tactics,” she added.
Fiorina said demonstrators should be courteous regardless of what they are protesting.
“Any protesters should always be peaceful, whether it’s Black Lives Matter or pro-life protesters,” she said. “Protesters should always be peaceful and respectful.”
Three people were killed, including one police officer, on Friday when a gunman stormed a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo.
A Planned Parenthood official in Colorado said “hateful” speech contributed to the attack.
