(CNSNews.com) - Hillary Clinton's comment comparing Republicans to terrorists was scripted and intentional -- "and this is what makes it so remarkable," former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told Fox News's Tucker Carlson Friday night.
"Tucker, she's talking about terrorists. I'll tell you what terrorists do. Terrorists cut people's heads off, and that's what they do in the Planned Parenthood clinics.
"If she wants to talk about protecting women, what about protecting the women who thought they were going in for a procedure to remove a mass of tissue, and in fact, a baby with a heartbeat, arms, legs, toes and eyeballs was hacked to death and the parts sold without that woman understanding that she had been exploited, she had been used, and somebody had made money off of her grief?
"If that's Hillary's definition of taking care of women, then I certainly hope I'm the one who gets an opportunity to stand on the stage and debate here about a year from now."
In one of her speeches last week, Clinton brought up "extreme views about women," a reference to those who oppose abortion and Planned Parenthood. "We expect that from some of the terrorists groups," she said. "We expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world. But it's a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States."
Huckabee said the abortion issue transcends politics.
"Somebody ought to provide the kind of leadership to say, I don't care what the polls show. This is the mark of a barbarian society. This is not the actions of a civilized people. Civilized people don't hack other people to death and then sell the parts because there's money to be made from it.
"And that's why I find it offensive when people say, 'Well, let's see what the polls say.' Let's don't worry about what the polls say. Let's say what right and wrong."
Hillary Clinton said she hasn't seen the undercover videos shot by a pro-life group that wanted to expose Planned Parenthood's trade in aborted baby body parts.
"And I think it's pretty evident that she couldn't look at the videos and continue to stand up at the podium and make the kind of flippant remarks that she did towards Republicans and terrorism," Huckabee said..
"The fact is, if she wants to talk about terrorism, and this is classic Clinton misdirection. Let's change the subject so we don't talk about what Hillary ought to be talking about, and that's releasing top-secret information.
"But if she wants to talk about terrorists, explain the terrorists that killed four Americans the night of Benghazi on September 11th, 2012. Those were real terrorists, and they killed real Americans, and she needs to give us some better answers than she's given so far."
As CNSNews.com reported on Aug. 26, the most recent undercover video of Planned Parenthood's activities shows a biotech CEO discussing the shipment of aborted baby body parts to squeamish people in laboratories.
She explains that neural tissue is “the hardest thing in the world to ship.”
“You do it as the whole calvarium,” the CMP actor says, referring to the aborted baby’s head. “Yeah, that’s the easiest way. And we’ve actually had good success with that,” she adds.
“Make sure the eyes are closed!” the narrator of the video says to her.
“Yeah! [laughter] Tell the lab it’s coming!” she jokes, saying, “They’ll open the box, go, 'Oh God!' [laughter] So yeah, so many of the academic labs cannot fly like that, they’re not capable.”
