What's his position on Planned Parenthood and the use of fetal tissue in research?

I'm starting to like him more.

For not having held an elected position, he's sure got the politician pandering thing down.

Blah blah blah. At least this shit is entertaining, and distracting, if nothing else.

Here is his response to that:


I wanted to use our time tonight to directly deal with an attack launched on me today by the left and the media. A couple questions came in on this subject, so I want to address it head on.
Today I was accused by the press as having done research on fetal tissue. It simply is not true. The study they distributed by an anonymous source was done in 1992. The study was about tumors. I won’t bore you with the science. There were four doctors' names on the study. One was mine. I spent my life studying brain tumors and removing them. My only involvement in this study was supplying tumors that I had removed from my patients. Those tissue samples were compared to other tissue samples under a microscope. Pathologists do this work to gain clues about tumors.
I, nor any of the doctors involved with this study, had anything to do with abortion or what Planned Parenthood has been doing. Research hospitals across the country have microscope slides of all kinds of tissue to compare and contrast. The fetal tissue that was viewed in this study by others was not collected for this study.
I am sickened by the attack that I, after having spent my entire life caring for children, had something to do with aborting a child and harvesting organs. My medical specialty is the human brain and even I am amazed at what it is capable of doing. Please know these attacks are pathetic attempts to blunt our progress.
Now lets get to answering your questions.
Nancy in Arkansas wants to know how my mother is doing.
Nancy, you know my mother is the only reason I stand here today. I surely would have been lost if it were not for her. She is an amazing woman. If she were the Secretary of Treasury, I assure you we would have a surplus. My mother was very ill when I announced my candidacy. The family was called in by her doctors. We surrounded her and prayed as did millions of you. She began to eat again. She has her strength back. She is doing as well as we can expect. Thank you for asking.
The next question is from Bill. He wanted to know if it was true that I was offered a slot at West Point after high school.
Bill, that is true. I was the highest student ROTC member in Detroit and was thrilled to get an offer from West Point. But I knew medicine is what I wanted to do. So I applied to only one school. (it was all the money I had). I applied to Yale and thank God they accepted me. I often wonder what might have happened had they said no.
Last question as it is getting late. A young nurse in Ohio wants to know how many patients did I treat during my career.
I treated over 15,000 patients in some 57 countries. We lived in Australia for a while as well. One of the most gratifying moments of each day is when I run into a former patient like I did tonight. My patients were all quite ill. I love seeing them with their families living normal lives. I think it is more gratifying than serving in Congress.
Speaking of serving in Congress. I constantly get asked how could I possibly become President when I have no political experience. Here is what I say. The current Members of Congress have a combined 8,788 years of political experience. How is that working out? People forget that of our 56 founding fathers who risked it all to sign the Declaration of Independence, Five were Doctors.
Good night,
Ben

So they were naturally occurring, free range gluten free fetal tissue samples that the researchers found under a microscope?

When you publish a paper and put your name on it, you support not only the conclusions but the methodology. That is, until you run for office and need to shill for votes.

I agree BM - the absence of one more candidate doesn't change the voters prospects in this election.

Bernie Sanders is a candidate, no matter how many, and not just in the corporate media, want to minimize him.

The attendance records at his rallies cannot be ignored.

People are fed up and it shows.

Best I can figure there's only been one perfect man and quite a few folks will even argue that .

So just about any way we look at it we will have to settle for a man or woman that has a few flaws.


I'm done here.

I like and respect the man. I wish there were more like him in our govt.

That is all .

Being an unapologetic hypocrite doesn't disqualify him for potus, it may even be a qualification.

"I'm a uniter, not a divider", "the United States doesn't torture"

"Most transparent administration ever", "hope and change"

On and on and on.

You could say the same thing about Trump's poll numbers. Doesn't mean either of them are going to get to do any presidenting.

One gets serious attendance boosts at one's rally when the majority of one's constituency doesnt work, barely work, or just work when they want to....by choice. They have all the time in the world to spend chasing ole bernie around. He's their top contender for picking everyone ele's pocket to fund their chosen "alternative lifestyles".
