In a campaign email message, Presidential contender Sen. Rand Paul urged his supporters to sign a petition to “Defund Planned Parenthood” following the release of a now-viral investigative video by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress.
The video depicts chief medical officer Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood eating a salad while explaining in graphic detail how to abort a baby intact so his or her body parts can be sold to a biomedical company.
Paul quotes Nucatola who states in the video, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part.”
The Kentucky senator continues:
That’s a direct quote from a video released today showing Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services describing how she performs late-term abortions to dismember and sell body parts for profit!
Despite their best efforts, I doubt our national media will succeed in covering this story up.
But I’m afraid that’s not enough. It’s time for the American people to demand Congress take action.
Congress holds the power of the purse. So this is one measure Congress can take now — even with President Obama in the White House.
And it’s up to you and me to ensure my colleagues in Congress take action, and set the stage for a pro-life President to sign even more pro-life legislation into law once elected.
No one else will do it for us.
After all, where is the media now?
Where’s the storm over this video that shows this Planned Parenthood executive bragging about performing banned partial-birth abortions and selling babies’ body parts for profit?
Where are all the hard-hitting questions to pro-abortion Democrats about their support, with taxpayer dollars, for this kind of madness?
It’s time for pro-lifers to take a stand. It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood.
Studies show that this alone will save unborn life.
Not only that, but Members of Congress who choose to vote to keep funding Planned Parenthood will pay a severe political price in 2016, paving the way for a pro-life President to sign pro-life legislation into law.
I believe that if our Republican Party stands strong for life, we can finally put Democrats on the defensive for their outrageous pro-abortion track record.
After all, they’re the ones with a track record of standing up for partial-birth abortion. They’re the ones keeping taxpayer dollars flowing to Planned Parenthood.
They’re the ones who believe five and six-pound unborn babies who are still in the womb don’t deserve legal protection.
Let the Abortion Lobby and their allies try and defend this madness…
I am 100% pro-life. I have a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee.
I’ve also introduced the Life at Conception Act during my time in Congress to end abortion-on-demand. And as a U.S. Senator, I’ve cast every vote as a U.S. Senator in favor of life.
If elected President, I assure you I will do everything I can to end abortion-on-demand in America.
