GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is moving ahead with his pledge to "lead the fight" against Planned Parenthood after undercover videos brought to light a baby parts harvesting program.
According to a recent article on The Hill, Cruz's pledge will have the Texas senator at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who warned that another government shutdown during the Legislative session to prevent funding Planned Parenthood would put the public's focus on the shutdown rather than on the issue being protested.
Cruz, who has long been at odds with McConnell, condemned the “show vote” in which the Republican controlled Senate failed to unite and defund Planned Parenthood. Cruz has since made the issue front and center in his presidential campaign.
"The Department of Justice needs to investigate and prosecute Planned Parenthood for any potential criminal actions of commercial trafficking of fetal organs,” Cruz said.
