Rep. Foxx took to the House floor today to call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood after a video surfaced showing they operate a seeding industry of aborted baby body parts marketing.
Only hours earlier, pro-lifers gathered outside the offices of House Speaker John Boehner to call for the abortion giant’s defunding.
Boehner has called for a Congressional Committee to investigate the charges that Planned Parenthood is dabbling in illegal activity.
The North Carolina Congresswoman was adamant that she wants Planned Parenthood defunded, calling the grisly Planned Parenthood operation “heartless” and sickening.”
“It is unconscionable and inexcusable that we’re giving the hard earned money of American taxpayers to an organization that callously kills an unborn child about every 90 seconds,” she stated.
“It is past time to end federal funding of this organization which views the life of the unborn as a revenue generator!” the female Representative concluded.
TRANSCRIPT OF FULL SPEECH BELOW:
“Mr. Speaker yesterday a disturbing video surfaced of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, discussing the sale of fetal organs from aborted as she casually eats lunch.
The heartless way that Dr. Nucatola describes how Planned Parenthood clinics kill innocent children and then harvest their precious hearts, lungs, and livers to sell is sickening.
In 2014 alone, Planned Parenthood was directly responsible for killing over 350,000 unborn babies in their clinics.
It is unconscionable and inexcusable that we’re giving the hard earned money of American taxpayers to an organization that callously kills an unborn child about every 90 seconds.
At it’s core Planned Parenthood supports the systematic extermination of the most vulnerable among us.
It is past time to end federal funding of this organization which views the life of the unborn as a revenue generator!
I yield back.”
Yesterday, Rep. Martha Roby took to the House Floor to decry Planned Parenthood.
Her emotional speech, found here, was looked at thousands of times in this blog.
Also speaking out was Tennessee Republican Rep. Diane Black.
A statement posted to her Congressional website reads:
“The fact that Planned Parenthood performs upwards of 327,000 abortions a year is heartbreaking and barbaric enough on its own. The news that its employees engaged in the harvesting of aborted babies’ body parts is almost too much to bear and is incredibly revealing as to the true nature of the big abortion industry,” said Congressman Diane Black. “Planned Parenthood’s disregard for innocent human life is even worse than we imagined. As a nurse for more than 40 years, I am passionately pro-life but this latest discovery has taken us beyond the pro-life versus pro-abortion debate. This is about basic decency and humanity. Anyone who can watch this video and continue to justify taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood is simply defending the indefensible. I support the calls for a Congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood, but that is not enough. Now that we are armed with further proof of this agency’s atrocities, Congress must act immediately to pass my legislation – The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act – so that we can cut off its largest stream of federal funding without delay. I look forward to making the case to House leadership for this bill’s immediate consideration.”
The media likes to ignore female politicians who speak against their darling Planned Parenthood. They have all but ignored Rep. Roby – let’s see what they do about Rep. Black and Rep. Foxx.
