Carly Fiorina: Aborted Fetus Video Is Not A Myth: 'I've Seen The Footage'

  • by: Alan Duke

The horrific-sounding abortion video Carly Fiorina described in her break-out moment in the CNN GOP debate does not exist, according to media fact checkers including Fox News.

"I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes," Fiorina said in the debate. "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.'"

But when Fox News host Chris Wallace suggested to Fiorina that the video was a myth, she refused to believe it.

"Do you acknowledge what every fact-checker has found that, as horrific as that scene is, it was only described on the video by someone who claimed to have seen it?" Wallace asked. "There is no actual footage of the incident you mentioned."

"I've seen the footage," Florin said. "And I find it amazing, actually, that all these supposed fact-checkers in the mainstream media claim this doesn't exist."

Fiorini has catapulted from near the bottom to second place in the latest Republican presidential poll, a jump that could be traced to her fiery challenge of defenders of Planned Parenthood, the group she blames for conducting the abortion in question.
