Cruz Refocuses Talk of Shooting to ‘Vicious Rhetoric on the Left'

As questions continue to surround last week's shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Spring, Colorado, Republican candidate Ted Cruz on Sunday readily shifted focus to what he called "some vicious rhetoric on the left," during a campaign stop in Iowa, NBC News reported.

When asked about the shooter reportedly telling authorities "no more baby parts," Cruz resisted suggestions that recent conservative condemnations of Planned Parenthood — including discredited allegations that the organization profited from fetal tissue donations — contributed to the Colorado shooter's motives for killing three and staging an hours-long standoff with authorities.

The Texas senator seemed to reference unconfirmed reports, including one relating to the shooter's gender and political identification.
