At a rally to end funding of Planned Parenthood (as well as to raise awareness for the fight to end abortion), Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out denouncing Planned Parenthood and their Democrat supporters. Also in attendance was Dr. Ben Carson and Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), who also happens to be a medical doctor.
Senator Paul argued that Hillary Clinton should return all of the money she has received from Planned Parenthood before saying, “There comes a time in the history of nations, when we will all be judged on whether or not we took a stand for life. Now is that time.” Paul then told the gathered crowd about seeing his children for the first time on ultrasound, “moving around, fighting, moving their arms. They were already playing sports. But we now find out that Planned Parenthood was using the ultrasound to manipulate the baby into a position to harvest the organs. This callous disregard discussed over wine and cheese should inflame and infuriate us all and we should stop once and for all any money going to Planned Parenthood.” Finally, Paul promised that the Senate would vote on defunding Planned Parenthood before the session ended in August.
Senator Cruz decried the villains at Planned Parenthood calling the recent videos exposing their criminal activities “horrifying.”
“In the past several weeks we’ve seen a series of videos of senior Planned Parenthood officials laughing, swilling chardonnay and casually, callously, heartlessly bartering and selling body parts of unborn children… no matter your views on abortion, to watch the videos and ask yourself one question. Are these my values?
Today is a time for action. Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation into all those individuals. Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open up a investigation into whether Planned Parenthood nationally is a criminal enterprise breaking the law.”
Cruz struck a more somber note when wondering why the Obama administration had not yet gotten involved to investigate the obviously criminal behavior at Planned Parenthood. “Today the Obama Justice Department is operating as little more than a partisan arm of the Democratic National Committee. When you have multiple individuals caught on tape apparently confessing to multiple felonies that carry with them long jail time, justice must be served. I call upon the Department of Justice to enforce the criminal laws and investigate Planned Parenthood.”
Cruz also urged the media to ask Hillary Clinton “if she is pleased that she has such passionate support from what appears to be a national criminal enterprise and if she supports Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts.”
But the most damning information of the day may have come from Rep. Andy Harris (who is also a doctor) when he explained the backwards nature of abortion law in America.
As a doctor at Johns Hopkins University, Rep. Harris has in the past done work experimenting using fetal sheep tissue. He explained that there were “more protections for those fetal sheep than there are for fetal human beings who are being dismembered at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics… very specifically we had to give anesthesia to those sheep fetuses before we took their tissue for study. That doesn’t occur at Planned Parenthood clinics.”
Harris also spoke about taking tissue or blood from humans, “if we had to alter our procedures in order to get it, we had to get extensive consent from a patient letting them know this was not the normal way. Obviously this is not how things are done at Planned Parenthood. They are willing to make these procedures more lengthy, more risky for the mother, just in order to gain their profit, I believe without discussing the ramifications with the women.“
The more we learn about the depravities being committed on a routine basis at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country – the more disgusting the Democrat support of their organization becomes.
Support our conservative leaders as they fight against the evils of abortion and the unethical and immoral practices of these abortion providers. Lend your voice to the national cacophony that is growing. Join us and save the lives of our next generation – millions of lives depend on us. Stand for what is right. Stand for the lives of these innocents. We can change the world.
