Planned Parenthood CEO: ‘Hateful Language’ Contributed To Shootings
Vicki Cowart, the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood CEO, says hateful speech contributed to the Friday’s shootings.
“We’ve experienced so much hateful language… such a negative environment has been created around the work that Planned Parenthood does,” said Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Rocky Mountains Planned Parenthood, on ABC News “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.””We’ve seen that across the country from all sorts of speakers in the last few months,” she added.
“I can’t believe that this isn’t contributing to some folks, mentally unwell or not, thinking that it’s ok to target Planned Parenthood or to target abortion providers.”
Asked whether she was specifically referring to members of Congress or politicians, Cowart said: “I think politicians have been in that conversation.”
