A Carly Fiorina super PAC has produced a graphic ad aimed at defending her description of a video that showed an aborted baby kicking its legs.
The former Hewlett-Packard CEO's earned a rousing applause during the second Republican presidential debate when she issued a fiery dare to Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to watch the undercover Planned Parenthood videos.
"Watch a fully formed fetus on the able, it’s heart beating, it’s legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain,” the Republican presidential contender said.
Critics questioned whether there was a video that actually depicted what Fiorina described and she has refused to back down from her claims.
Fiorina's super Pac is now hitting back in a powerful new online video.
Warning: Video contains graphic content
The graphic ad produced by Carly For America opens with quotes from outlets which allege she exaggerated what has been released on the undercover Planned Parenthood videos. It then shows a baby on a table overplayed with audio from a technician describing how she was told, "We're going to procure the brain."
Planned Parenthood responded Wednesday to the ad, requesting in a letter that it be immediately removed from the Internet. The organization said the baby actually portrays "a Pennsylvania woman's stillborn son" and not a live aborted fetus as suggested.
"This fake video doesn’t show what you have claimed," Dawn Laguens, executive director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund wrote to Fiorina, according to The Washington Post. "Simply put, the video you described at the debate does not exist, and the video you’re now asking people to watch is not what you claim it is. This fraudulent video is beneath a serious candidate for the presidency, and you should take it down immediately."
