Republicans are outraged after undercover videos from anti-abortion activists charged Planned Parenthood with selling parts from aborted fetuses, while Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, retort that all Planned Parenthood is doing is donating fetal tissue for scientific research.

Conservatives are now demanding that the federal government cut off funding for Planned Parenthood; the federal government is already banned from funding abortions, but Planned Parenthood receives money for other services.

Christie Seeks Conservative Cred on Planned Parenthood

Presidential candidate Chris Christie, who is viewed with suspicion by social conservatives for previously supporting abortion rights, is trying to break out of the Republican pack by showing he can put pressure on Clinton over the issue.

In the YouTube video, "Secretary Clinton, Answer The Question,"Christie begins by criticizing Clinton's assertion that Republicans opposes government funding for women's health care. Christie details health care services that are funding by the New Jersey government (though the only thing he cites specific to women's health is mammograms).

Then he expresses his disgust, saying Planned Parenthood should not be allowed to "kill children in the womb, in a specific way, so that they can maximize the value of body parts that they then sell on the open market for profit." He takes to opportunity to note he "defunded" Planned Parenthood in New Jersey, hoping to impress social conservatives who question his anti-abortion bona fides.

But Jeb Bush Steps On Christie's Attack

He turns to Clinton, "Why don't you answer this question: Do you support the conduct of Planned Parenthood in the killing of children in the womb in a way that maximizes their body parts for sale on the open market?"

He wants to show that he can use his blunt and brash rhetorical skills to put Hillary on the spot. Unfortunately for him, Jeb Bush's recent gaffe on the subject, saying he's "not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health," allowed Hillary to ignore Christie and pound Bush. And it didn't help Christie's case that Republicans do support funding women's health.
