Sanders Statement on Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting

BURLINGTON, Vt., -- U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement today after a gun battle left three dead at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado Springs, Colorado:

“While we still do not know the shooter’s motive, what is clear is that Planned Parenthood has been the subject of vicious and unsubstantiated statements attacking an organization that provides critical health care for millions of Americans. I strongly support Planned Parenthood and the work it is doing and hope people realize that bitter rhetoric can have unintended consequences.”
