And I will defend a woman's right to choose and Planned Parenthood. And Planned Parenthood. This video from Planned Parenthood has made national news and their so-called doctor is on there celebrating how she crushes the body parts of fetuses. Your take on how this video changes the debate. Unlike Hillary Clinton, who has a radical position in terms of support for Planned Parenthood, I defunded Planned Parenthood more than four years ago, long before any of these videos came out. In our state, we we took the money, we defunded Planned Parenthood and we put it into other entities. In many cases, we put it in the county public health services. So there are better, non-controversial ways to do that, that can still protect and provide for women's health. That's why when people talk about a pro-life record in this race, I've actually done it. Defunded Planned Parenthood. Passed pro-life legislation. But this video is one more example of why defunding them is so important.
