Congresswoman gives emotional response to horrifying Planned Parenthood vid on House floor, “Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity?”
A stirring speech on the House Floor from a US Congresswoman decrying Planned Parenthood’s ghoulish selling of aborted baby body parts has been virtually ignored by the media.
U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) represents Alabama’s Second Congressional District.
Following an undercover video conversation between the Center for Medical Progress and a top Planned Parenthood abortionist revealing how the tax funded organization chops up the babies they kill with abortion to harvest their body parts, Rep. Roby gave an emotional response.
The hidden camera video surfaced July 14,2015 showing Planned Parenthood senior director for medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing in chilling detail how abortion procedures can be altered to preserve hearts, lungs and livers so they can be sold.
While standing next to an enlarged screenshot of the video showing one of the more shocking exchanges, Rep. Martha Roby rose on the House Floor and said passionately:
“Mr. Speaker, I rise to raise awareness about a disturbing development.
“Today video surfaced of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, admitting – in fact bragging – about the harvesting and trafficking of fetal organs after abortions.”
At this point in the speech, the Alabama House member’s voice begins to quake as she expresses what she saw in that Planned Parenthood video.
“To those who haven’t seen the video, I urge you and encourage you to watch it. But you need to be forewarned,” she advises.
“The casual and callous way that she details how babies can be killed in such a way that their tiny hearts, lungs and livers can be taken and sold for profit is simply horrifying,” Rep. Roby says fighting back tears.
To quote Doctor Nucatola “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver… so I’m not gonna crush that part,”
“I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
“This is one of those moments that – as a nation – we have to ask ourselves, “who are we?
“Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity?
“Are we going to look the other way while babies are brutally killed and organs are harvested for profit?”
“These aren’t specimens they are babies for goodness sake!”
“I may only have one minute today. But I promise Mr. Speaker we’re not done talking about this, I yield back,” Rep, Roby said forcefully.
Rep. Roby is expressing what so many Americans are feeling after watching that tape. But, the media will ignore her. Had she been outraged that the Little Sisters of the Poor Catholic Nuns were not going to be forced to offer contraception in their health plans, the media would be all over it.
Had Rep. Roby given a speech about how a male talk-show host ridiculed her position on birth control, the media would do flip flops to air the speech.
If she had slipped on a pair of pink tennis shoes prior to her speech to filibuster a late term abortion ban, the media circus would have been stunning.
But, because Rep. Roby articulately spoke out for unborn babies and challenged the abortion media darling Planned Parenthood, despite her being a woman, she will be silenced or ignored.
Way to go Rep. Roby – you have my full respect!
Her words later with others: “No one is above the law”!
