Did Carly Fiorina Just Twisted the Truth During the Debate?

Republican presidential candidate, businesswoman Carly Fiorina, may have drew raves from Republican and conservative observers last 16 September with her answer to a question that dealt with the debate over funding for Planned Parenthood, but it does not mean she is right or telling the truth.

The former HP CEO sparred with other candidates during the CNN Republican presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and pushed strongly to defund the organization, even if it leads to a government shutdown. Planned Parenthood has come under intense scrutiny after the release of undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood executives discussing using aborted fetuses for research.

Some, like Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), argued that Republicans should wait until 2017 — when a theoretical Republican president would take office.

But others, like Fiorina, said Republicans should take action now — and put the onus on Obama to veto a government-funding bill that defunds the organization.

"I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, watch to these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, 'We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.' This is about the character of our nation. If we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us!" Fiorina said, drawing raucous applause.

But wait a minute! Where is this video that showed a "fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking?" Was it a late upload or something?

It doesn't matter whether they're for or against defunding Planned Parenthood. Anyone with a shred of honesty will admit that a fully formed fetus on the table, it's heart beating, it's legs kicking was never shown on any of the videos.

If there is no video with the graphic details being described by Fiorina, then she must be lying through her teeth. If this is the case, then the Americans are better of not voting for her because Fiorina has shown that even if she is not yet a Presidential nominee, she can already lie about something and look at the people with a straight face. How much more if she is elected to the highest office in the United States.

What she describe may not be far out of the realm of possibility that she could envision a fully formed baby who with no anesthetic would be kicking and screaming when its face gets cut open to extract the brain, but without any proof except her imagination, then the country is better off without her as the leader.
