Jeb Bush lashed into Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton for advocating that government shouldn't be involved in abortion when she "means the opposite" — that "government must force all of us to finance it."
In a blistering op-ed piece posted Friday by Fox News.com
, the GOP White House contender condemned her abortion positions and support of funding for Planned Parenthood.
"When Americans from both parties and both sides of the abortion debate came together to ban partial-birth abortion as a truly barbaric procedure unworthy of our country, she defended it," Bush wrote. "She said that the voters had no right to decide the issue.
"Today she opposes banning late-term abortions, again siding with the most extreme advocates of abortion. It is a stance that has recently won her the endorsement of the two biggest supporters of unrestricted abortion in this country, Planned Parenthood and NARAL."
"Her vow to keep taxpayer dollars flowing to organizations that perform abortions — a truly perverse example of cronyism — surely helped seal the deal," he added. "She says that government should not be involved in abortion, but she means the opposite: government must force all of us to finance it."
