Cruz has long been an outspoken critic of the organization, but his recent Tweet draws attention to a video that is sure to be a nightmare for Planned Parenthood. Cruz is a relentless warrior for conservativism and one of the most high profile members of Congress, making him perhaps Planned Parenthood’s worst enemy.
The undercover video, released by Center for Medical Progress, could certainly be a problem for Planned Parenthood. Below are a few quotes from the video, and you can read more here.
Given that we actually see the fetus the same way, and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here. . . . Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that.
Even abortion providers don’t believe an unborn child is a “clump of cells”. This is a violent industry that exists to murder children, and privately Planned Parenthood themselves know it is true.
If I’m doing a procedure, and I’m seeing that I’m in fear that it’s about to come to the umbilicus [navel], I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix and pull off a leg or two, so it’s not PBA [partial-birth abortion].
Ripping a living child apart, limb from limb, to circumvent the law. LIVING children, ripped apart.
But we certainly do intact D&Es [dilation and extraction, otherwise known as partial-birth abortion, a method that is illegal under federal law].
So they obviously don’t care that much about the law. It sounds like the ban on partial birth abortions is just an excuse for them to rip living children limb from limb. This is absolutely sickening.
The fetus is a tough little object, and taking it apart, I mean, taking it apart on Day One is very difficult. . . . You go in there, and you go, “Am I getting the uterus or the fetus? Oh, good, fetus. What have I got? Nothing. Let’s try again.
Remember that women’s health argument? Hacking away trying to dismember a fetus, only to realize it’s the uterus, doesn’t sound look good healthcare to me. It sounds like more violence from the death industry. PP doesn’t do mamograms, they don’t do prenatal care, they aren’t good for women’s health, they rip children limb from limb while they are still alive, they provide illegal partial birth abortions, and they admit that it is a violent industry of death. Planned Parenthood is an absolutely despicable organization, and defunding them should be prioirty number one for conservatives. Thank you Senator Cruz for leading the fight
