Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is vowing to do everything in his power to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood in the wake of another undercover video showing a senior executive haggling over the price of aborted baby body parts.
“This is baby parts we’re talking about,” Paul said in an interview on Fox News this morning. “We’re talking about doctors who are trying to preserve certain parts by not crushing them while they crush a baby’s head in the rest of the procedure. And then they’re going to sell the body parts. This is gruesome.”
Paul said even pro-choice American should be aghast at the content of the undercover videos. The Center for Medical Progress released the first video last week and another today.
“Everything that Planned Parenthood does other than abortion is done by community health clinics. There is no reason in the world to have Planned Parenthood other than abortion. No taxpayer dollars should go to it because they are indirectly, if not directly, paying for abortion,” Paul said. “We should stop all funding for Planned Parenthood.”
