After a gruesome undercover video was released showing an executive at Planned Parenthood talking about the routine harvesting and sale of body parts, Senator Rand Paul has announced he will fight to defund Planned Parenthood. Punchingbag Post reported last week Dr. Deborah Nucola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parent was caught on video describe a normal routine process where baby’s body part can be ordered from a menu.
“I plan to do whatever I can to stop them and will introduce an amendment to pending Senate legislation to immediately strip every dollar of Planned Parenthood funding,” Senator Paul said. Senator Paul has a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee and has previously introduced the Life at Conception Act to end abortion on demand.
Cecile Richards, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood has apologized for Dr. Nucola’s comments. “Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion,” Ms. Richards said. “This is unacceptable and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements.”
In our view this is not much of an apology, considering the disturbing nature of the video.
