The House is currently debating the GOP proposal to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
Abortion radicals are raging mad.
Raging mad that Republicans are exposing the abortion predators with story after story of criminal negligence, death, and exploitation at America’s taxpayer-subsidized death clinics.
Raging mad that Republican women dare to talk about the psychological harm and trauma to young women lured to Planned Parenthood and kept in the dark about abortion alternatives.
And mad that Republicans are describing in graphic detail the procedures used to rid the world of The Unplanned.
Most macabre abortion defense of the night so far: Just a little while ago on the floor (at approx. 9:05pm Eastern), Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Gwen Moore argued that abortion was better for unplanned babies than a life “eating Ramen noodles” or “mayonnaise sandwiches.”
Or, as Lori Ziganto summed it up: “So according to DemRep Moore, there is NO right to life. But there is a right to NO Ramen.”
Celebrate life: Eat your Ramen.
I still do!
SteveEgg notes that Rep. Gwen Moore is from Wisconsin. “Not a sterling day for Wisconsin Democrats between the state Senate and Gwen Moore.”
Annoy an abortion radical: Share your mom’s favorite Ramen recipe.
Jill Stanek notes another jaw-dropper from Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: “This is not about abortion, this is about saving lives.”
I’m sure that’s what Philadelphia Horror doc Kermit Gosnell said every time he picked up his death scissors, too.
Update: 12:00am Eastern Debate ended. Final vote on the Pence de-funding amendment was postponed until the Hosue votes on all the continuing resolutions at the same time. Steve Ertelt has a wrap-up:
Abortion advocates said if Planned Parenthood loses its place at the government trough that women would be hurt.
“Planned Parenthood has provided health services to one in five American women,”Rep. Nita Lowey of New York said.
Rep. Barbara Lee of California called the amendment a “war on women” and Rep. Jan Schakowsky said Planned Parenthood “saves money and saves lives” by the non-abortion health care it offers and “now it not the time to restrict women’s access to health care.”
And Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin went as far as implying that it is better to have an abortion than make a child be forced to live “eating Ramen noodles” and “mayonnaise sandwiches.”
But Pence talked about the myriad of ways in which Planned Parenthood has been proven to exploit women.
“The headlines and years of investigations speak for themselves," he said. “In 2002, Planned Parenthood was found civilly liable in Arizona for failure to report statutory rape. In 2008 it violated reporting laws in Indiana and California. In 2009 it instructed a girl in Tennessee to lie about her age so she could get an abortion without her parents’ knowledge. Recently in California, Washington, New Jersey, and New York, Planned Parenthood clinics have been accused of fraudulent accounting or overbilling practices. And last week, undercover videos showed Planned Parenthood employees apparently willing to aid human sex traffickers by coaching them on how to falsify documents and secure secret abortions for their underage prostitutes.”
“As the father of two teenage daughters, there are not words strong enough to portray my contempt of this pattern of apparent fraud and abuse by Planned Parenthood,” he said.
