Congresswoman Mia Love (R-UT) argued the Planned Parenthood videos released by the Center for Medical Progress and the left’s defense of Planned Parenthood believes people are “liabilities that need to be managed” on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Love said of the videos, “It’s serious. It’s emotional. And it’s personal. I mean, think about this, have we become so desensitized that we can laugh about killing babies, harvesting body parts to sell like commodities on the street? If this is the reality, it’s certainly something I’m unwilling to accept. It’s absolutely horrific.”
She continued, “we need to do everything we can to make sure that the American people do not forget what’s happening. Now watch, this is what’s going to happen, the left and those who want to protect this organization are going turn the conversation from babies, killings of babies to going — shutdowns, and women’s health issues, and everything to kind of distort, distract, and divide Americans into thinking what’s actually happening isn’t happening. The fact that they are actually taking brain tissue from live babies. These are American babies.”
Love added, “there’s a difference. You will see the difference between the left and the right. What you’ll see is that the left believe that our people are pretty much — we believe that they’re assets that can be developed, or they believe that they’re liabilities that need to be managed. We believe that human beings have the right to live, that our job is to protect, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And they don’t care about these things. I mean, here we are, we’re accepting the fact that black Americans make 12 — make up 12% of the population, yet Planned Parenthood aborts 78% of minorities in this country. This is an issue that should be something that we’re both on the same side of.”
When asked if she believes there’s a “racial element” to where Planned Parenthood locates its offices, Love responded, “Well, again, we make up 12% of the population and, yet, let’s look at who they’re aborting. This is an issue that the CDC should be taking on as far as I’m concerned. It should be something that, again, as an organization, if they’re going to do everything they can to help the black race, they should be on top of this issue, and oppose Planned Parenthood and the practice of aborting these babies.”
