Fiorina: Clinton believes pro-life women don't count

Speaking at the annual March for Life rally in Washington on Friday, Fiorina said the Democratic primary front-runner is picking and choosing which women to support.
“As we stand here today, Hillary Clinton is in New Hampshire giving a pro-abortion speech,” Fiorina said. “She is saying that I, as a conservative woman, that all of us as conservative women, don’t count.
“If you are a pro-life man — or, heaven forbid, a conservative woman — who doesn’t believe the litanies of the left, then you are waging a war on women, or you are a threat to women’s health, or you are variously described as window dressing … or offensive as a candidate,” she added.
Fiorina added that science is turning the tide in the abortion debate.
“Science is on our side, public opinion is on our side,” she said. “We are winning this fight, ladies and gentlemen. We are winning this fight, but it is a fight."
“And so we need a fearless fighter in the White House, not just to win this election, but to restore the character of our nation,” she added.
The former Hewlett-Packard CEO also pledged to support pregnancy centers that do not provide abortions with funding that would have gone to Planned Parenthood, a women’s health clinic that is the largest abortion provider in the nation.
“The pro-abortion left cannot stand it when we talk about defunding Planned Parenthood. They scream at the top of their lungs about taking back women’s health. Unless, of course, you bring up pregnancy centers or community health centers,” she said.
“Then, the left goes dead silent, because, actually, this has never been about women’s health for them,” she added. “It is about instead the litanies of the left, it is about funding their political agenda.”
Fiorina was joined at the March for Life by Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa.), who has spearheaded the charge in Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.
The annual march is protesting the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
