Planned Parenthood is defending an alleged abuser of women over a woman who is a political opponent.

The abortion giant told White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to delete her Twitter account Monday, in response to Ms. Conway’s criticism of ex-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

On Monday, Ms. Conway quoted a tweet from Mr. Schneiderman affirming his commitment to upholding the rule of law against the Trump administration. She responded: “Gotcha.”

Her remark came shortly after four women, two of them named, accused Mr. Schneiderman of “nonconsensual physical violence” in an article published by the New Yorker.

“They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent,” Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow wrote in the article.

Mr. Schneiderman attributed the allegations to consensual “role-playing.”

“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” he said in a statement Monday. “I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”

He later announced his resignation.

“While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time,” Mr. Schneiderman said in a second statement.
