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.

She continues:

    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.

But….not here!

Way to go Rep. Roby – you have my full respect!

Her words later with others: “No one is above the law”!

Megyn Kelly’s Heated Discussion with Islamic CA…, posted with vodpod

NPR has terminated the contract of long-time contributor Juan Williams over remarks he made on the O’Reilly Factor last night. On Monday night’s O’Reilly Factor Williams weighed in on Bill O’Reilly’s now infamous View appearance .

Juan Told Bill (video below) , “Well, actually, I hate to say this to you because I don’t want to get your ego going. But I think you’re right. I think, look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality...”more below

I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.

A Brief History of NPR’s Intolerance and Imbalance
Fox News/ Published October 21, 2010

From calling Tea Party members “Tea Baggers,” to saying that “the evaporation of 4 million” Christians would leave the world a better place, to suggesting that God could give former Sen. Jesse Helms or his family AIDS from a blood transfusion, NPR’s personalities have said some pretty un-PC things in the past. A look at the record reveals no shortage of intolerant statements and unbalanced segments on the publicly sponsored network’s airwaves.

Here’s an incomplete list of questionable and controversial content that has aired on NPR or has been uttered by its employees:

— In June, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) said it was easy to see why some refer to NPR as “National Palestine Radio” following a June 2 segment hosted by Tom Ashbrook on the Gaza flotilla incident. The segment featured five guests — none of whom defended Israel’s actions.

Among the five guests, Janine Zacharia, a Middle East correspondent for The Washington Post, was the only one who did not overtly criticize Israel. She also did not defend its actions, CAMERA officials said.

“So there you have it — five perspectives and not one voice to present the mainstream Israeli perspective,” they said in a June 17 press release. “That’s Ashbrook’s and NPR’s version of a balanced discussion on Israel.”

— Last week, Newsbusters, a conservative media watchdog group, claimed that NPR’s “Fresh Air” spent most of its hour insinuating that the Republican Party was dangerously infested with extremists.

NPR’s Terry Gross hosted Princeton professor Sean Wilentz, who has written that President George W. Bush practiced “a radicalized version of Reaganism,” Newsbusters’ Tom Graham wrote.

“Can you think of another time in American history when there have been as many people running for Congress who seem to be on the extreme?” Gross asked, according to Graham.
“Not running for Congress, no,” Wilentz replied. “I mean even back in the ’50s.”

NPR issued an apology in 2005 for a commentator’s remark on the return of Christ following a complaint by the Christian Coalition that the comment was anti-Christian.
On “All Things Considered,” the network’s afternoon drive-time program, humorist Andrei Codrescu said that the “evaporation of 4 million [people] who believe” in the doctrine of Rapture “would leave the world a better place.”

Codrescu, who was on contract with NPR but not a full-time employee, later told The Associated Press he was sorry for the language, but “not for what [he] said.”
NPR apologized for the comment, saying, it “crossed a line of taste and tolerance” and was an inappropriate attempt at humor.

— Also in 2005, NPR apologized to Mark Levin, author of “Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America,” after a broadcast of its program “Day to Day” falsely accused him of advocating violence against judges. Levin accepted the apology, but said the broadcast was “illustrative of a smear campaign launched by the Left to try and silence” his criticisms of judicial activism.

— In 2002, the head of NPR issued an apology six months after a report linking anthrax-laced letters to a Christian conservative organization.

— Also in 2002, during an interview with the Philadelphia City Paper, NPR host Tavis Smiley said he strived to do a show that is “authentically black,” but not “too black.”

In 1995, Nina Totenberg, NPR’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent, was allowed to keep her job after telling the host of PBS’ “Inside Washington” that if there was “retributive justice” in the world, former North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms would “get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.”
