A party of schoolchildren visiting the Iowa botanical garden became part of backdrop for Carly Fiorina’s speech on abortion. Fiorina ushered pre-schoolers into the anti-abortion rally in Des Moines. She directed around 15 young children towards a makeshift stage, where they sat with her in front of a huge banner bearing the image of an unborn foetus. The problem, one parent said, was that the children’s parents had not given Fiorina permission to have their children sit with her while she talked about harvesting organs from aborted babies, they weren't even asked.
The children were there to tour the garden and did not know the political rally was even happening, and likely didn't understand it at all.
