The Truth about the Republican Debate

It should be of no surprise that the Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Wednesday was full of misinformation and lies. Ruby Mellen, in the Huffington Post, has highlighted some of the most outrageous falsehoods uttered by the Republican hopefuls, including anti-vax nonsense and imagined videos of kicking fetuses.

[Carly Fiorina] said[,] “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.'”

However, there’s no evidence that a video like this actually exists. Vox senior editor Sarah Kliff wrote Thursday that in the 12 hours of footage CMP has released, there are no images that match Fiorina’s description. … It’s possible that Fiorina was thinking of some other video … but as of yet, no one has been able to find a clip that looks like what Fiorina was talking about.
